I have a nine hour layover in Los Angeles on my way to Australia. I'm planning on going to venice beach, but can't seem to find any information on the best way to get there from LAX. Does anyone know of anybuses, or is it cheaper to take a taxi? approximately how long would it take me to get there?

merci, shaila

Hey!!!Buses just are not a plan in LA!!!!People in LA totally relies on cars!I would say hop in a taxi, It took me around 30 minutes to get to Venice from LAX, I cant remember how much I paid but i think if you want to make the most of your time there its worthwhile!!!Venice beach is great, also if you can theres 25 cent buses, i cant remember what they were called sure it was something like the Big Blue, that run from Venice to Santa Monica to save you the walk!Theyre really close!Depending when u are there,check out the farmers market(great corn on the cob) and have fun!!!Santa Monica is great, good shopping also and dont miss the pier and the Baywatch-esque beach!
