The best way to describe the In-N-Out near LAX is so close and yet so far. If you look at it on a map, it's like right there. But the half-mile or so walk involves a lot of on-ramps and off-ramps and cranky drivers in a rush to catch their flights. It isn't very pleasant—particularly if you're on a tight layover, it's an odd hour or you've got luggage to carry around.

It's been something of an open secret that the best way to get around this is to take the free shuttle to The Parking Spot, a private garage for travelers, even if your car isn't parked there. The shuttles are always running, and look, it's right next door!
