Even though I live the convenience of Sonoma County Airport, if you prefer larger jets, then Sacramento Airport (SMF) is great. When I lived in Wine Country, we would fly through SMF because there's very few traffic hassles. If you go through Oakland or San Francisco airports, you have to know when rush hour is in the Bay Area and how to avoid the traffic tie-ups such as the "MacArthur Maze" in Oakland.
And SMF has a new terminal. I haven't seen it yet but I've read in heard that it's nice.
Since you live in San Pedro, see if there's a direct flight out of Long Beach Airport to Sacramento which may be a lot less hassle than LAX.
