Find the cheapest month to travel from Los Angeles International to San Diego

From its massive population to its sprawling landmass and diverse culture, L.A. is the iconic melting pot of the west in almost every respect. Growing consistently in many areas, residents of The City of Angels do not mind taking a break from its hustle and bustle.

The farther south and markedly smaller San Diego thus makes for a pleasant retreat, not to mention a breath of fresh air! A short, 112-mile trip southeast situates visitors from L.A. in a completely different landscape, one perhaps best known for its laid-back atmosphere.

Flights from Los Angeles to San Diego are typically completed in about 50 minutes. One thing passengers quickly notice when embarking to The Plymouth of the West is its more comfortable climate. Though not too far apart in terms of distance, San Diego is a bayside as opposed to city. American Airlines, Alaska Airlines, and Delta Airlines are the three carriers that offer flights to and from the cities.

Leaving from LAX

The giant that is Los Angeles International airport is nestled in the heart of Westchester; a local neighborhood located on the outskirts of the mega-metropolis. The size of LAX is incredible, yet reflective of its city.

A growing annual passenger base of 70 million is served by nine individual terminals; they are arranged in a horseshoe pattern for visitors, and due to the size of the facility, shuttle bus trips to and from each are provided to passengers. Tom Bradley International is most recent terminal to be built at LAX, and its traffic has grown tremendously since it was built.

While waiting for your plane to depart, take a trip to the Theme Building Complex, home to the airport’s famous observation deck. A huge variety of restaurants, gift shops, cocktail lounges, and business centers has been made available to passengers.
