3 Days in Los Angeles, Help!
What would you do if you had 3 days in LA? I'm staying at the Omni on the first night, but looking for a bed at hostel or a couch to surf for the other two.

Once you reach Santa Monica, you can stroll Third Street Promenade (there's a great farmer's market there on certain days.) Nearby Montana Avenue is also fun to walk up and down, do some celebrity spotting. There are awesome gourmet burgers and beer at the local bar, Father's Office. Towards the beach, Palisades Park offers beautiful overlooks of the Pacific Ocean... follow it to Santa Monica Pier and then from here, you can walk the boardwalk through Venice Beach and see all the crazy sights. As you move inland, there's lots of activity on Main Street, as well as Abbot-Kinney- both are lined with fun local shops, bars, and restaurants.
Have a great time soaking up the SoCal sunshine!
The Metro is pretty good to get around to see the sights. As someone has mentioned in this post, LA is a sprawling city, so walking isn't an option. Work out which sights you really want to see e.g. Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard, as you'll need public transport to get to them.
If you're not bothered about sight seeing, I generally stay in the South Bay, Hermosa Beach area. There are some cheap hotels around there, nice beach and the nightlife around the Strand/Pier area is pretty good.
Hope that helps.
I rented a Prius for just $27 for the day when we had a 12 hour layover near LAX. It hardly used any gas on the drive all over Malibu and back to the hotel near LAX.
