    Never done this before, so I have a few questions. Where do you get the Gold Line from? How long does it take you to walk from 7th and metro to Staples? Thanks in advance!

    The Gold Line starts in Pasadena, on the Sierra Madre Villa station. It's like 10-13 stops until it hits Union Station (Red Line).

    The few times I took the Gold/Red Line and got off at 7th Street Metro Center, the walk was only about 10 minutes. It really depends on your walking speed.

    While it seems like most of you are allergic to the "like" button, I just want to personally say thanks for looking anyway.

    Thanks! This worked out perfectly for us. We got on at the Lake Station and transferred to the Red Line. The walk only took us about 10 minutes and we chatted the whole way with a group we met on the Gold Line. Totally worth it!

    I guess the first tip should be "Wait for season to start."@

    I'm coming up from San Diego to the game Saturday. I'm thinking of jumping on the early Amtrak to Union Station. Is there a Metro connection at Union Station, to head down to Staples Center?

    Take the Redline to 7th Street Metro Station ( about 3 stops down ?)
    Transfer to blue line get off at Chick Hearn / Pico Station if you are feeling lazy or
    Walk out of 7th street Station Figueroa Street exit .
    Turn left / go south on Figueroa towards Staples Center
    Numbered streets should be getting higher (7th , 8th etc)
    It's sort of down hill if that helps
    Staples center is at Figueroa and 11th .
    About a 10 minute walk

    You can't miss it really.
    Another thing that works is just follow all the people with Kings jerseys
    when you exit the station or the blue line train .

    Sounds perfect! For a weekend game it's simply a no-brainer to use the Rail system to avoid that long drive and the horrible L.A. Traffic!
