Traveling comes with a lot of benefits. It can help you grow as a person, when you learn more about different cultures and people. Traveling with family or friends can help strengthen your bonds and bring you closer together. But traveling comes with its downsides. Delayed or cancelled flights, long lines at the airport, going through security can be stressful and frustrating. Fortunately, many airports today have improved their amenities to make your stay more comfortable.
Here are some of the best airports in the world where you wouldn’t mind spending a few hours:
Los Angeles International Airport
One of the busiest airports in the world (it was the world’s fourth busiest and the United States’ second busiest in 2018), Los Angeles International Airport or simply LAX sees more than 80 million passengers pass through it in a year. It is the biggest international airport on the West Coast, so it is a major international gateway to the United States, and also serves as a connection point for many people traveling abroad. You can imagine then that finding parking can be difficult. Fortunately, services like ParkON make it easy for you to find a parking space for your car.
ParkON’s user-friendly and intuitive website allows you to search, select and reserve a parking space in under five minutes. They offer parking spaces in more than 200 parking lots close to all the major airports in the United States, including LAX. Finding airport parking will never be a problem for you again. The best part is that all their parking lots are safe, secure and well-lit, so you won’t have to worry about leaving your car while you go off on your travels.
If you find yourself stuck at LAX waiting for your flight, there’s plenty for you to do. The airport features several fine dining options, plenty of shopping, and even art exhibitions and installations for you to check out. If you want to relax and release the tension caused by delayed or cancelled flights, you can even get a soothing massage. Perhaps one of the best and most unique features of this airport is the PUP (Pets Unstressing Passengers) program, where you can spend time with friendly therapy dogs who can comfort you if you are nervous about flying.
