A memorial service for the late Kobe Bryant has been scheduled for February 24th at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, as announced by his wife Vanessa Bryant. This ceremony honors the memory and legacy of Bryant, his daughter Gianna and the seven other helicopter passengers who lost their lives in a crash in late January. The service begins at 10AM PT, and is meant to serve as a “Celebration of Life.”

For die-hard Lakers fans spread across the nation, or those just inspired by Bryant’s lifetime of achievements in basketball, attending this ceremony may be non-negotiable. Fortunately, parking and admission to the event are free, which means the only thing to worry about is getting there and finding a place to stay.

Things to Remember

Before you plan your trip, you should keep a few travel tips in mind:

  1. Add $60+ to your base fare if you’re booking a flight with Spirit or Frontier. Because carry-on bags are not included in the base fare, flights with other carriers might be cheaper if you plan to bring a lot of luggage.
  2. You might save money if you bundle hotels and rental cars with airfare. You can do this using SkyscannerExpedia and Kayak.
  3. Don’t forget to check out this map of Kobe Bryant murals in Southern California. These fares give you a few extra days to check out L.A., you might as well go for a culture tour.
