Visiting Pico Rivera
Pico Rivera is best visited by car, since it is approximately 12 miles from Long Beach Municipal Airport and 20 miles from LAX. While shuttles, and a combination of metro buses and trains, can get you out to the area, you will want to use Pico Rivera rental cars once you are there to see the sights.
One of the most popular attractions in the area is the Pico Rivera Sports Arena. Noted as being the largest Mexican rodeo ring in the United States, the arena brings thousands to rodeo events and Latin entertainment events annually. Choosing from one of the affordable, nearby hotels in Los Angeles will make getting to those events much more convenient.
Are you a history buff? Housed in a train depot that was built in 1887, the Historical Museum exhibits writings, artifacts, and photographs documenting the development of Pico Rivera. Those looking for exercise can enjoy the bike and pedestrian trails that circle Paseo del Rio—making for a cool retreat from the California heat. You can also readily test your skills against the greens at the municipal golf course, which is close to a number of Pico Rivera hotels. Baseball fans can head north to watch the Dodgers or south into Anaheim for Angels games (which are also accessible by metro link train through the station in nearby Commerce). Plus, Anaheim's Disneyland® is ready for exploring, and it's less than 20 miles from your hotel.
