Los Angeles travel tips

1) To get a taxi at Los Angeles Airport, look for special marks

To relieve traffic, the airport has made special stops for Uber and Lyft cars, indicated by the letters A-D, and drivers are only allowed to pick up passengers from them, so follow the signs from the airport building to find your stop.

2) Head to the oldest Los Angeles farmers market if you're hungry

The Original Farmers Market is a historical monument and landmark and a great place to have a quick, tasty, and inexpensive snack. For example, you can try hot dogs and sandwiches from Magee's Kitchen, Brazilian BBQ at Pampas Grill, French quiches and traditional desserts from Monsieur Marcel Bistro, and doughnuts from Bob's Coffee and Donuts. In addition, each area of LA has its own small farmers' markets.

3) Enjoy the beauty of Los Angeles beaches

Los Angeles has wonderful beaches that are great to lounge in the sun, walk, and simply chill. The main ones are Venice Beach and Santa Monica. The Santa Monica Pier was built in 1909. It offers plenty of chances to spend an evening in a carnival-like atmosphere.
