LAX is the closest airport to Santa Monica. You could fly into Burbank (1 hour away) or Long Beach (2 hours away) but on Friday night, your best bet is LAX. It is a $20 uber (or a $40 cab) ride from the fields. To use Uber at LAX, stay on the top level and call the driver to let them know which one of these ride share stops you’re walking to.
We’re working with the city of Santa Monica to secure hotel blocks and deals. We’ll post on social media as soon as we have them secured.
