One day in LA, would should we do?

I'll be in Santa Barbara for 4 days in March and will be flying out of LAX on Sunday morning. I booked a hotel for Saturday close to LAX (Manhattan Beach) and have the entire Saturday free to do something. Any recommendations? It's my first time in Ca and my husband will be with me. We have a rental car.

I'd say, if you only had one day, visit Santa Monica. Go to Third Street. Santa Monica is not too far from Beverly Hills, drive around and visit Rodeo Drive. Then go to Farmer's Market/Grove in LA. We sometimes have lunch at the Farmer's Market, they have all sorts of food and cheap, watch a movie, and then watch the dancing water fountains. On weekends, they have music entertainment, which is nice!

Manhattan Beach is very nice! Usually,Hermosa Beach, which is close to Manhattan Beach is very busy during weekends, especially during the evening time. For great cajun food, go to Rajin Cajun on Pier Ave in Hermosa Beach! Great atmosphere too!
