aussiemate has indicated that this thread is about USA

We are two Aussies guys stuck in LA on Monday the 15th from about 10.30 am until 11.30 pm.
We want to use the day as best as we can , love the sun, if any when there on monday and man love to hit the shops.
Can anyone help out and suggest what we both can do for the day.
cheers and thanks Bevan

I recently had an 8hr lay-over in LAX. I left the airport, took public transport to Santa Monica and spent the afternoon on the beach and shopping on 3rd st promenade - it was awesome! Got back to LAX again by public transport with plenty of time to spare. I suggest that you do the same. You'll have more time than I did, so you can even throw in Venice(!), both of which are of easy access by bus if you're cheap (like me), or you can take a cab. Have fun!

probably more work than you wanted, but Las Vegas is only about 4 hours drive from LA.
