How to get to Palm Desert/Springs

by Alundar

Hi everyone!

I'm flying in from Tokyo to LAX, and I need to get to Palm Springs. I've looked at flights, but the costs are generally absurd.
I'm arriving at 6:00 onTuesday, April 6th. I would like to get to Palm Springs the same day, if possible.
I've looked at the bus, but the only one I could catch leaves at 11:30, arrives at about 2:00 am, and is too late for the people I'm meeting. Also, I'm not sure if I want to hang out that late at the bus stop there.
So far my best option seems to be to get a cheap hotel near the airport, then grab the Amtrak the next day.
My priorities are convenience and cost, with cost winning between the two.

Could any of you kind people out there give me any suggestions?

Much obliged,

How far are these people in Palm Springs willing to drive? You could take the Metrolink train from LA to San Bernardino, which is, maybe, an hour drive from Palm Springs (depends on where in PS, exactly). Yeah, that sounds like a long way but, hey, it definitely beats waiting in a Downtown LA bus station for several hours then trying to find something to do in Palm Springs at 2am (I'd suggest Denny's). And they'll likely be more open to it since the traffic usually doesn't get bad until about San Bernardino.

Now, for getting from LAX to Union Station, where the train to San Bernardino leaves from, that requires more planning. There's the FlyAway bus (http://www.lawa.org/welcome_LAX.aspx?id=292) that's $7. You can take express buses or even the train to get between the two, but, for the time it saves, the FlyAway is really the best option for that trip.

If these people won't drive to San Bernardino, then a hotel near LAX is definitely the way to go.

Wow, that's perfect. Odds are I can get picked up at San Bernardino. Thank you very much. You have saved me a lot of time and hassle! (And money!)
You're awesome!


Travel Tips for Los Angeles

Turning left in Los Angeles

by Erin74

Okay, so here is the deal with making a left hand turn in Los Angeles. It is a big pain.

Many tourists come to Los Angeles from places that have left hand turn arrows at intersections. While L.A. has added a few here and there, you mostly will not see turn arrows. With traffic congested like it is in this city, you can sit through an entire green light and never have a break in the opposing traffic that would allow you to turn left. Hence the confusion. Here is what locals do (and what you should to, unless you want to get honked at and see a few ugly hand gestures).

1. The first two cars in line to turn left should pull forward into the intersection.

2. When the light turns red, these two cars may turn left. In these circumstances is it OK to turn on a red light and oncoming traffic will expect it. Just move out of the intersection as quickly as possible.

Disneyland is a must even if...

by norway

Disneyland is a must even if you dont have children. Situated in Anaheim some miles outside LA city.
Marine Land with dolphin show is very good too. At the coast south. Atmosphere up at Malibu Beach. Small famous restaurants along the road. One place serving egg dishes. Very good.
Chinese restaurant with foot and fingerprints in concrete
of famous actors.
Sunset Boulevard. Bevery Hills. Hollywood.

Petersen Automotive Museum

Some of television's greatest cars are here, including #53 - Herbie the Love Bug, and, pictured here with myself, the General Lee.

*No, they won't allow visitors to jump over the hood & slide into the seats through the window...

The J. Paul Getty Museum

by califdweller

The J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Center is designed around an open central courtyard surrounded by five two-story pavilions. The pavilions house changing exhibitions and the permanent collections of pre-20th-century European paintings, drawings, illuminated manuscripts, sculpture, and decorative arts, and 19th- and 20th-century American and European photographs. Visitors are free to view works of art chronologically or in random sequence by moving between pavilions.

Don't miss going to the Getty as the only cost you will incur is $5 per car to park. There is NO ADMISSION FEE. Be prepared to see only gourmet and expensive foods offered inside at the various lovely restaurants and cafes.
One IMPORTANT TIP! The Getty is made from white travertine rock which reflects an incredible amount of sunlight on the top of this mountain. DON'T FORGET TO BRING SUNGLASSES! Makes the visit so much easier on the eyes :-)
