Getting to MaxFunCon West

MaxFunCon West will be held at the UCLA Lake Arrowhead Conference Center, in Lake Arrowhead, California, about two hours east of Los Angeles in the San Bernardino mountains.

We encourage you to make carpool plans and share rides to the venue, which ranges from about an hour to about two hours from Southern California's major airports. Many visitors plan carpools on the MaxFunCon West Facebook group.

Flying

If you're flying in, the closest major airport is Ontario, California, which is serviced by most major airlines (including the bargain carrier Southwest). If you wish to fly into Los Angeles, Burbank is significantly closer than LAX. We recommend Ontario if possible, as it will help you avoid Los Angeles traffic during rush hour on Friday (you'll only have to deal with Inland Empire traffic).

Carpooling

For the sake of sanity, friendship and the environment, we encourage you to carpool with fellow attendees, both from the airports and from the Los Angeles area. Carpools can be arranged on the MaxFunCon West Facebook Group.
