Default Wanting to visit, but nearest airport is 35/40 miles from his prison in LA

I don't know if this is in the right section.
I really want to visit my boyfriend for the first time from the UK, the only issue is the nearest airport is 35/40 miles away from his prison so I don't know how I would be able to get there. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank-you

That's hard to answer specifically without knowing what city/state....some may have public transportation or a transportation service for that prison. Otherwise, either a cab or Uber may be necessary.

Have you tried mapquest or one of those sites that give references to hotels and or city info?

I've always rented a car - I don't know if that's possible for you. Sometimes you'll find ride-shares on here.

No i haven't tried those websites as i don't really know where to look. Well he is at the Allen Correctional Center in Kinder Louisiana and I believe the nearest airport is Lake Charles

Hi I assume you are going to stay near to the prison so you need to find transport from the airport to the hotel . You can ask the hotel if they offer transfers or think about uber it's cheaper than a taxi.then ask in the prison forum for ideas on how to get to the prison each day . You may find a carpool or there maybe a bus.good luck

Hi, I would stay nearest to the prison if that is the easiest, i don't know how the whole uber thing would work in that area and with price and things. it's just about finding a way somehow to get to the hotel and to the prison , it's hard to find anything out when i don't know where to look. thanks

Uber is cheaper than taxis and are prepaid via the app on your smartphone so you wont get any nasty surprises at the end of your journey. I have used them in the US and they were great.
Getting to the prison from your hotel would be easier if any other visitor would be prepared to give you a lift or uber again. Just bear in mind whether the prison will allow you to wait on the grounds if you are early and if indeed they allow taxis or ubers. It is worth ringing and checking.

I will have to look into that if it seems like the only option, I thought it would be expensive as its quite a distance. Thankyou for the advice

The Days inn is the nearest motel by the look of it and its just up the road , there is also the econo inn on thew same road. If you book to stay there you can ask for a carpool , there may be other visitors staying there or check prices with taxi companies and uber.
