Long Beach is about 20 miles south of the city, so air travelers should book a flight to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Even though Southern California has one of the most extensive freeway systems on the West Coast, Los Angeles is still the champion of traffic congestion. Organizers suggest taking the Metro Blue Line as an alternative. Otherwise, here are driving directions and parking options.
Organizers recommend the following hotels that are close to the festival. The link will take you to the Original Lobster Festival’s lodging page. Since Zombie Fest takes place in the same location, your lodging options remain the same (no lobsters though, only human flesh). For a larger selection, sift through what’s available here.
Don’t have a costume?
Halloween is a classic holiday for getting things done at the last minute, if at all. Zombie Fest takes the stress out of costume shopping by providing a team of killer Hollywood artists from Cinema Makeup School to turn you into a flesh-eating zombie. This service is completely free, too; think of it as giving up on survival and letting a zombie gnaw on your arm willingly.
