We will be in LA for 5 days and want to spend a day and night at the beach. Where is the best place to stay and activities for teenagers. The next morning will need to be at LAX.

What is your budget for that one night? Santa Monica rates are very high. When is this trip - rates raise in the summer, fyi. However, I would recommend Loews or The Shore or Fairmont. All well located and great for teens, they can just walk to the Promenade and spend hours there (and at Santa Monica Place Mall and the Pier). Bike rental spots are all around, great for riding the beach bike path which goes 27 miles.

You might want to look at Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach in addition to, or instead of Santa Monica. Actually slightly close to the airport and the beach is nicer, too. The hotels will not be on the beach but will be close by, and probably half the price (with the exception of the Shade!)
