The sprawling size of LAX can be boggling to many travelers. There are nine terminals spread out in the shape of a horseshoe. All the terminals are connected by shuttle buses outside security, and 5 through 8 are connected airside by various walkways. Careful planning and very generous time budgeting is a must if you want to avoid frustration. There’s free WiFi-available in all terminals, with higher speed premium WiFi available for a price.

Arriving in New York

Though Los Angeles and New York are opposites in many ways, they have some things in common. The biggest is their propensity for over-stimulation. Los Angeles may be all about entertainment, but New York is no slacker in that department, and there’s an adventure around every corner.

The city is a kaleidoscope of diversity, bursting with sights, sounds, smells, flavors and experiences. You could spend lifetimes here without repeating yourself. Choosing just a few highlights is almost impossible. If you’ve never been to the City before, you have your itinerary mapped out by a million Hollywood movies: Statue of Liberty, Empire State, Times Square, Central Park. If you’ve been to NYC before, we recommend picking a neighborhood or a theme and going deep. Always make time for at least one museum. The Museum of Natural History or the Met each have seemingly bottomless collections.
