With imposing granite cliffs forming just one part of its natural and architectural beauty, Vancouver attracts many visitors from Los Angeles. Orbitz.com offers the best deals on flights from Los Angeles to Vancouver, as well as rental cars and hotels for every budget.
Los Angeles is the largest city in California. It is a center of business activity, medical and scientific research and innovation, culture, and tourism. It offers everything from top universities to theme parks, and its nearly four million inhabitants include immigrants from all over the world. Its main airport, Los Angeles International Airport, is located 15 miles from central Los Angeles, and it is one of the world's busiest airports.
You can get to Los Angeles International Airport by taking the bus or subway to a stop near the airport. The ride costs $1.50, and you can pick up a free shuttle from the bus or subway stop to your departure terminal. Other options for ground transportation include taxis, private shuttle buses, public and private buses from the suburbs and nearby cities, and the private FlyAway shuttle, which charges $7 from Union Station and $10 from the Westwood area of Los Angeles.
Before your plane takes off, you can enjoy some refreshment at one of the many snack bars in the airport. This might be a frozen yogurt from an ice cream parlor, a fast food meal at McDonald's or one of the other fast-food outlets, or a full meal at an airport restaurant. Duty-free shopping is available at all departure terminals, and you can pick up a newspaper, magazine, or book to read on board at one of the newsstands or gift shops.
Vancouver is the capital of the Canadian province of British Columbia. It is considered to be Canada's most beautiful city because of its natural surroundings as well as its stunning architecture. Vancouver is situated off the Pacific coast of Canada, so the city is surrounded by the sea. It is also a business destination thanks to its many entrepreneurial and multinational businesses.
Your flight will land at Vancouver International Airport, which is 26 minutes from the center of Vancouver if you take the Canada Line rapid rail system from the airport. Other transportation options include rental cars, taxis, and hotel shuttles. Vancouver is beautiful and welcoming at any time of year, but visitors who enjoy the many opportunities for water sports and activities should plan to visit in June, July and August when the sun shines and the temperature reaches up to 73 degrees Fahrenheit. Winters in Vancouver are relatively mild, and tourists who visit in the winter may experience lows of 32 degrees Fahrenheit in January and highs of 45 degrees Fahrenheit in February. Rainfall can occur at any time of year due to Vancouver's coastal location.
Experience the natural beauty of Vancouver by taking a walk across the Capilano Suspension Bridge, located on its granite cliffs and offering a spectacular view of the nature park below.
