Long Layovers

So i’m going on a trip with my dad for my 18th birthday this year in September. He gave me a choice of either giving me money towards my pc or we could fly out of LAX (home airport) and fly to another airport i’ve been wanting to go to. Of course i picked the second one. The dates were going is September 29th - October 1st. Had to be a domestic flight too. What are some cool airports in the US that are unique and good for layover’s? Im wanting to have a maximum of 3 layovers if possible. Lemme know what you guys think and where i can search for this.

Honolulu is certainly a unique one. Not sure how it is as a layover given how far out of the way it is, but its open-air concept (in some areas, at least) is pretty cool and makes for easy spotting if that’s your thing. Plus, who doesn’t want to go to Hawaii?

I’m not sure if it is the only Hawaiian airport with that concept but it’s the only one I’ve been to.

Not entirely sure what defines “good for layovers” in your book as many people are different, but that’s my 2 cents.

Why not go to Guam? That is, unless, having a passport is an issue. It’s technically domestic and allows you to explore somewhere off the beaten track. Could fly via Honolulu…

But if the passports the issue, I’d suggest Alaska. Go to Barrow. Could be quite cool too.

But as is mentioned above, everyone’s travel tastes are completely different, so have a look and choose something for you!

Guam is a US territory so no Passport

I would suggest Eugene, Colorado. Houston, Texas.

I recommend flying up to Duluth, Minnesota, via either Minneapolis, Phoenix, Fort Myers, or Chicago. It’s a gorgeous approach, which takes you right over Lake Superior and the forests of Northern Minnesota.

US Citizens are required to have a passport to enter Guam

I’d have thought that too, but it seems as though a passport is required for US Citizens.

Oop, I got beaten too it. Thanks, Altaria.

You can drop by MFR! (I totally don’t live nearby so totally not biased at all)

We got connections to many major cities on this side of the US, including directly to/from LAX which is departing right now as I type

It has a very cool valley approach, which is very scenic imo and isn’t just straight in. We also got an overview of the airport, makes it easy to get a close view of the aircraft
