I'll be in LA soon on a lengthy layover. I figure I have about three hours away from the airport to play with. Can someone help me out with a few must-do suggestions while I'm on the ground? I've never been south of Santa Barbara, so the Southland is a mystery to me.

The natives (LA Guy, PStoller) will have better and more detailed suggestions, but I'll throw in my $.02 based on my two-month stay in L.A. this past fall.  LAX is fairly close to the beach.  I recommend taking a quick cab ride to Santa Monica and seeing the pier and the Third Street Promenade (three blocks worth of stores and restaurants closed off to traffic, usually featuring street performers).  You may have a problem getting a cab ride back -- make sure that you have a number to call or you know the place where cabs pick up.

If your layover is not during rush hour and you have three hours between disembarking the first flight and the beginning of boarding of the second flight, you may want to try Beverly Hills, which is a little further out.  Rodeo Drive is the obvious attraction.  I saw Tom Arnold (in the Prada store, no less, buying a pair of shoes) and Miguel Ferrer (from Crossing Jordan) when I visited.  The Saks where Winona got her five-fingered discount is also there.
