staying in Anaheim but need to go to LA kings game Sat nite

I will be stayin in the Anaheim area as we are flying out of orange County Airport. My question is there is a hockey game in LA on Saturday Jan 10. What will the game be like to get to from the Anaheim area on a Saturday and then getting back to the Anaheim area after the game on a Saturday night for someone from small town in Canada and who has never been to California before. Any advice is much appreciated in planning my trip. Thanks

Hi You should be fine. Later in the evening the ride should take 45 minutes. During the day, leave yourself enough time in case there is traffic. There is major construction on the 5 freeway outside of Orange County but not on Saturday.

Go early. Hang out at LA Live. Go to the grammy museum.

How did this work out for you? We would like to catch an LA Kings game on Dec. 18th where we would travel to and from Anaheim on the same day

The game the original poster wanted to go to hasn't happened yet, its on January 10. As long as you have a car it shouldn't be an issue but since your game is on a Thursday I suggest leaving Anaheim in the early afternoon and driving to the downtown LA area before rush hour traffic starts to build up later in the afternoon - otherwise you'll be tired and cranky by the time you get to the game having sat in bumper-to-bumper traffic for 30 miles and a couple of hours. There's plenty to do in downtown LA for a few hours before the game starts.

Renting a car for 24 hours is the cheapest, most efficient way to get to DTLA and back.
