The Los Angeles International airport (commonly known as LAX) offers the most accessible means to travel to and from Los Angeles.

Also, try to search for non-stop flight if you can as this will save you hours of travel time.

Los Angeles is closest to and has the most beautiful neighborhoods California has to offer.

Silver Lake

The Silver Lake area is located approximately five miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles and just east of Griffith Park. Silver Lake was home to many early motion picture studios. The Mack Sennett Studios, Tom Mix, Disney, Monogram (which is now KCET), were located here and drew creative people to the area.

Echo Park

Echo Park is a district of Los Angeles located northwest of downtown. It is east and southeast of Silver Lake , north of Westlake and Mac Arthur Park and southwest of Elysian Park. Echo Park and its lake have always been a touchstone for the community that grew up around it.

Los Feliz

Los Feliz is bordered by Hollywood Boulevard on the south, Hyperion Avenue on the southeast, Griffith Park on the north, the Los Angeles River on the east, and Western Avenue on the west… Freeway access is handy, as Los Feliz lies between the Hollywood and Golden State Freeways.
From Silver Lake, to Echo Park, to Los Feliz, and more… you name it, L.A. has it all.
