Attractions and Local Links
May is a glorious time in Los Angeles. The area's beaches, mountains, islands, theme parks, museums, theaters and restaurants are at their most enjoyable in May, and not yet crowded by summer tourism.
Known as the "Entertainment Capital" of the world, the greater Los Angeles area's attractions include the original Disneyland, and exciting Universal Studios tour, historic Knott's Berry Farm, the Magic Mountain water and thrill rides, a large variety of museums, concerts and theaters, many professional sports teams, a recently revitalized downtown, and several world-renowned research universities. All of these attractions are reachable with 30 to 60 minutes travel from the conference hotel. Group tours will be available through the conference hotel's concierge desk before and after the conference.
For less structured idle time, there are public beaches with clean water, biking and jogging paths, modest surfing waves, boating opportunities, pier entertainment and shops and guaranteed sunshine within 10 to 30 minutes of the hotel.
The conference hotel, the Los Angeles Airport Marriott Hotel (driving directions), is a world-class hotel offering a pleasant, relaxing, semi-tropical atmosphere and a variety of shops and restaurants. It is located just a free half-mile shuttle ride from the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and less than 2 miles from the Santa Monica Bay on the Pacific Ocean. The room rate is an attractive $119 per night, and applies all nights before and after the conference. Those who reserve first may request one of the poolside facing Lanai rooms.
