LAX AIRPORT. Hi Guys, got a friend going to Houston with a 7 hour stopover at LAX and he doesn't want to leave the airport. Any recommendations how to kill the time? Thanks

There is really not much to do at all at LAX. If your friend has 7 hours, I would suggest doing a quick tour direct from the airport.

If he wants a nap, there's a few hotels near the airport that'll let you hire out a room for a day or half day. Might be worth the money to have a shower and freshen up.

Last year I had a six hour layover. I had enough time to head to Venice beach, do some shopping and eat at In-and-out burger. I am not suggesting your friend does that itinerary in their seven hour stop, just demonstrating that you can make a stopover at LAX worthwhile

How about an airport hotel! That way you could sleep in!

As above, fully recommend in-and-out Burgers, or head to Manhatten beach and kill the time. Plenty to do and see, and only a quick trip from the airport
