LAist loves to travel. That's why we think it's important that Angelenos gearing up to leave their beloved city behind should not only know the indepth, important details about our own airport here in the City of Angels, but airports that they might, quite possibly land at while winging their way across the country.

The critics have spoken, the people have asked for it, and so LAist now gives you the researched, well-educated, fully detailed, Top 10 airports across the country and what you need to know to navigate them, partake in them, and make your travel experience the best in the entire world!
