LAX central area viewpoints?

Wed Oct 02, 2019 3:36 am

I’ll have a few hours to kill and no transport. I’m aware the Theme Building isn’t open all the time, so are there any other locations in the central/terminal area like on top of car parks?

Many thanks - musang

Unless something has changed recently there aren't really any good areas in the middle of the airport for spotting/photos. There are a few spots on the upper level where you can see planes parked at the gate (near T3 and between TBIT and T5), but otherwise not so much.

Even without transportation you could walk over to In-N-Out. Google maps says it takes 20 minutes to walk there from T1. That said, the lighting won't be that great this time of year for photos at In-N-Out except maybe late afternoon. Imperial Hill is too far to walk. You could always take a Lyft/Uber/Taxi over there though. The lighting over there will be good for most of the day at this time of year.
