Compton has its own airport on the outskirts of town—the Compton/Woodley Airport. But if you're interested in staying in hotels in Los Angeles and driving out to Compton, you might prefer to fly into Los Angeles International Airport, or LAX. It's just about a 20 minutes' drive on the 105-W, and you can look into Compton rental cars to get around while you're in town. It's also possible to reach Compton by public transit from LAX.

And of course you'll want to drive into nearby Los Angeles to see some of the famous sights, like the Hollywood Hills, which many of the country's biggest celebrities call home, and the Walt Disney Hall in downtown Los Angeles.
