Tales from our travels

Getting there

  • Planes

    Most international and local airlines (including British Airways; operate direct flights to LAX, a 15-minute drive from Venice Beach’s bustling Boardwalk.
  • Trains

    Downtown Santa Monica light rail station on Colorado Avenue is a few minutes’ walk from the famous Santa Monica Pier. Expo Line trams arrive here frequently from LA, Long Beach and Pasadena.
  • Automobiles

    A car will be useful if you plan on exploring the surrounding area – hire a vintage Mustang (or something more quotidian) from a booth at the airport and follow Lincoln Boulevard north to Venice Beach.
