San Pedro (L.A. Harbor) is a few miles Northwest of Long Beach. LAX is about a 20-25 minute drive if there is no traffic. Long Beach airbort is probably five to ten minutes closer by car or bus and is a far easier airport to navigate. Burbank and Orange County airports are doable too, but quite a bit farther away. To go to the peir, take the Harbor Fwy south until it ends. Then look for signs. It's pretty easy to get to.
