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.

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!
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)
