There's no denying it: LAX is a mess. We're not sure who actually enjoys driving to that horseshoe-shaped automotive hell (seriously, fly in and out of Burbank instead). Inevitably though, we find ourselves stuck in traffic on Sepulveda, cursing our decision to not take a FlyAway shuttle. If you can spare some extra time on either end of a flight, you can make the experience borderline fun thanks to a runway-adjacent park and a beloved burger. Whether you're waiting for a friend to land or starved after an interminable flight, the In-N-Out near LAX and the park across the street are amazing places to suck down a milkshake as jumbo jets thunder overhead.
