One day in LA area

WIll be attending wedding in May in Ojai. Plan on flying in a day early. Looking for suggestions on something to do for a day with 18 and 22 yr old kids. We fly into LAX and will have car. Have been to LA area before, so we've been to Griffith Onservatory, Santa Monica, Hollywood area.

Ojai is roughly 40 miles from Santa Barbara, which I love, so I'd spend the day there.

Yes, Santa Barbara certainly comes to mind as a good option. Not sure what you might have not done when you've been to LA before, or what else if anything you might want to do in the LA area, but places / specific attractions that can be worthy of a day would include Pasadena (Norton Simon Museum, Gamble House, Hollyhoock House, Huntington Library and Gardens, Old Town Pasadena) either of the two Getty museums (Getty Center in Brentwood or Getty Villa in Pacific Palisades / Malibu), the Long Beach / San Pedro area (Queen Mary, Aquarium of the Pacific, USS Iowa museum) just to name a few things.

Visit the Getty Center in the morning. Have lunch there on the patio.

Head downtown after lunch. Stop to take a quick look at Disney Concert Hall.
