On Sunday April 14th I'll be taking a day trip to LAX, I'll be there for about 12 hours, and I was wondering if anyone had any good ideas on what to do, I'm not very familiar with the LA area so I dont know whats close by, but if anyone has any suggestions I would be glad to hear them.

I'd like to go to the beach, and I'm assuming thats a cab ride(?) If theres an air museum or anything like that close by that would be nice as well.

Thanks,
Alaska737

1.) In-N-Out Burger on Sepulveda is a must if you post on this site.

2.) If you want a beach, Venice Beach is about 10-15 minutes north of the airport right up Lincoln Blvd - probably about a $20 cab ride.

Unfortunately, public transportation in the LA area leaves much to be desired.

So a taxi is pretty much the only convenient way to get around. Like Delta said, Venice beach is a good spot for some nice sunset views.

Also try to visit the Getty Center as well.

Not exactly *close*´by*, but there are two in the eastern part of the Greater L.A. area. A rental car is essential:

Planes of Fame at Chino Airport
March Field at March ARB, Riverside

You can always go to the Flight Path Learning Center by Imperial Hill, too. That's a pretty neat place. They don't exactly have a/c around like a typical museum, but they have some wonderful artifacts there. It's definitely worth a visit. The Santa Monica Pier is also kinda fun too. There's too much to do for just 12 hours, but those ideas and the ones mentioned above are a great place to start!


Boilerup! Go Purdue!

Flight Path Learning Center

Looked at that, and while it looks great, Its not open on Sundays  Sad


Sounds like Im going to Venice Beach for a while (hope the weather is good) and I'll probably stop by the In-N-out, is that within walking distance to the airport?

Oh and does Venice Beach have good taxi service or will I have to call a taxi company to pick me up?

Another good idea. In fact, I would recommend paying the extra $5-7 each way to go there over Venice Beach. I find the Santa Monica Pier area to have more than Venice Beach (although at Venice Beach you can see the planes coming in/out of LAX, depending on runways)

In-N-Out is walkable to the airport if you have time. Maybe a 15 minute walk to Terminal 1.

Venice Beach (and Santa Monica Pier) both should have cabs hanging around for you to just walk up and grab one.
