MY FRIEND AND I HAVE A SEVEN-HOUR STOPOVER IN LA ON OUR WAY TO NY. CAN YOU RECOMMEND A NEARBY ACTIVITY TO FILL IN THE TIME? A. BARLOW, PRAHRAN VIC
You only have about three to four hours away from the terminal, allowing for time to clear immigration and get through security checks when you return to the airport for your domestic flight.
Best bet is to grab a taxi to Manhattan Beach, about a 10-minute drive. Get some ozone-scented air in your lungs with a walk along the beach or the pier.
This is a great food spot, with a number of outstanding cafes and restaurants. Manhattan Beach Post is one of the best. Call for a cab to the airport 30 minutes before you're ready to head back; any restaurant should do it for you.
