Urth Caffe is one of my favorite stops in Santa Monica. It's located downtown and sometimes parking can be a pain.They have a huge selection of food and coffee and baked goods. All of their baked ... read more
goods are extremely fresh so I would recommend a little tart here and some pieces of pie there. Their brioche pudding was one of the best I've had. I also recommend their coffees as you can get almond milk there (so rare!) which is very tasty.Finally, their food!! Their food is awesome, and they have everything from burgers to something that will satisfy your vegetarian side even if you're not a vegetarian.

This is probably my favorite place to shop in the LA area. The mall is large and sometimes a hot spot for celebrities. But the main point is that it's got ALL the stores you'd ever be interested in ... read more
from a nice selection of Rodeo Dr to your typical Gap and American Eagle. You will also find a healthy selection of department stores there that I enjoy browsing.

Commuting in LA is generally a pain because of traffic at any given time of day. I didn't take the cab much since I lived there, but I know a cab ride from LAX to Downtown LA is a set rate at ~$50. Santa Monica and Downtown LA are on opposite sides of LA with Beverly Hills in the middle. Downtown might be a good choice is you want to be able to hop onto the freeway to any destination quickly. But if prefer a more scenic environment, Santa Monica is beautiful--the beach is right there!

Great for brunch!

Sharon K. Yapp recommended Santa Monica Pier

The pier is a fun place to spend an afternoon. Head out to the ocean (probably cold water unless it's summer) or play carnival games and ride the ferris wheel instead!

Third Street Promenade is a great outdoor shopping experience if you're in SoCal. It's filled with great stores (e.g. Banana Republic, Paper Source, Z Gallerie, Hard Tail, Bebe) and restaurants ... read more
(Barney's Beanery, Gotham, and Hillview). At the end is Santa Monica Place, which just re-opened as an open-air shopping area with stores like Bloomingdales, Kitson, and Louis Vuitton. The one that will either entertain you or drive you crazy is the huge crowds on the weekends and the occasional petitioner (hey, it's California). Oh, and I've been accosted a few times by fortune tellers who tell me I have positive energy and must contact them. As you walk the shops, take your pick of street entertainers, everything from solo raps to full-on dance crews.

A great place to spend the afternoon if you enjoy shopping and prefer to be outdoors.

This is probably the hotel I had the most fun at. Near the corner of La Cienega at Sunset, and home of the Skybar.
