Los Angeles is famous for the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, for its beautiful beaches, and for Disneyland, and this draws visitors year-round. Unfortunately, having all of those things in one place means it can cost quite a bit of money to visit. Here are a few tricks to make L.A. more affordable.
1. Don’t try to Uber or take a taxi from the airport — use the Flyaway bus.
Getting in and out of LAX is not for the faint of heart. Attempting to hail a cab or waiting for an Uber is a form of torture, thanks to the never-ending construction at LAX. However, the experience can be a bit less painful if you use the Flyaway bus. The Flyaway bus does not require a reservation, and picks passengers up every 15 minutes from LAX and drops them in a lot of the major spots around the city, including Hollywood, Long Beach, Westwood, Van Nuys, the Orange Line, and Union Station. It’s not the most glamorous, but at $10, it is a much easier and cheaper option.
