Things to do while waiting for our flight

I guess Im going to have to leave my hotel room at about lunch time but dont need to be at the airport till about 7ish, I have a car so wondered what there is to do near by? I dont really want to go to the beach cos wont be able to shower afterwards so was thinking maybe a cinema or shopping mall that kind of thing. Any suggestions? Also dont want to drive more than about 10 or 15 minutes incase we get stuck in traffic on the way back.

About 5 minutes south of El Segundo is Manhattan Beach. There is the MB Village Mall, with two Macy's. If you show your Passport to the cashier at each section you shop, you get an automatic 11% off. There are always sales too. There are many other stores and restaurants and a movie theater complex outside the mall, scattered around the parking lot.


If you check out at noon, I'd go to the MB Pier area for lunch with a view of the ocean. It's a mile farther on MB Blvd.

If it were me, I'd go to Santa Monica Beach and have a nice leisurely lunch, shop, gawk at people, or see a movie. You've got gobs of time!

I'd head down to Marina Del Rey, Santa Monica, or Manhattan Beach after you leave the hotel. Get lunch there. Then head over to the Howard Hughes Center which is quite close to the airport (10 minutes, tops) and see a movie there, the theater there is pretty impressive.
