In terms of mileage, traveling to Los Angeles should be a breeze. Our county to the north is simply not that far away. Yet with traffic and parking hassles, getting there by car is often annoying and time-consuming. Many avoid the trek despite all the wonders the City of Angels has to offer.
Fortunately, there’s Metrolink. A Metrolink journey removes the pesky problems of traffic, driving, and parking and costs only $10 per person for unlimited travel all day Saturday or Sunday. Children five and under ride free (3 with each fare-paying adult). Find out more about the Metrolink Weekend Day Pass here.
Through March, you have the opportunity to win a Metrolink Daycation getaway to LA that includes four Metrolink tickets and $100 gift certificates to Philippe’s the Original and San Antonio Winery. That’s right. A $100 gift cert to each place.
An easy walk from LA Union Station, Philippe’s is the home of the original and delicious French Dip sandwich. An LA icon, it’s a delicious place for breakfast and lunch.
San Antonio Winery is LA’s original urban winery. This hidden gem and historical landmark still operates in the same community where it was founded in 1917. Stop for wine tastings, winery tours or a meal at onsite Maddalena Restaurant.
