5 Hours in Burbank and/or surrounding areas

We will be visiting the area with our 22 y.o niece and her BF for a few days next month. Unfortunately, we can't stay with them until their flight at 4 p.m. on the last day but we can drop them off at the Burbank airport or somewhere they can catch public transportation back to the airport on our way out of town.

If you were that age and had a period of time on a Sunday from 8 or 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. (time to be back at BUR), what would you do? Anything that is within walking distance to public transportation to get them back to BUR would be great.

Thanks in advance!

There's a Marriott hotel across from Burbank airport, the bell desk there might store their luggage for them for a few hours so they don't have to walk around with it.

The 222 City bus stops right outside the airport. Sunday schedule is on metro.net. The bus takes about 30 min to drive down through Burbank and on to Hollywood Boulevard, The Walk of Fame/ Highland Center/ Chinese Theater. (There is a Loew's hotel at Highland Center that also might watch their luggage.) To get back to Burbank the 222 bus picks up in front of McDonalds on Hollywood Boulevard. $1.50 each. Sundays it comes by at 1:40pm getting you to Burbank airport around 2:15.

There's also beautiful downtown Burbank, where there is a shopping mall, 30 movie theatres and lots of restaurants serving breakfast and lunch. From there they'd take the 165 bus to get to the airport, takes about 12 mins. The bus picks up in front of sears on Northeast corner of 1st Street & Magnolia at 1:50pm . It says "west hills" on the bus (verify w/driver if he's going to airport). Burbank is a quick airport so arrival at 2:30pm is about right for a Sunday 4pm flight.

Thanks so much! They've never been to CA, so I'm guessing that the Walk of Fame and Chinese Theater would be a thrill for them!
