If you want to do shopping at Macy's, go up to reception and ask for an International discount card, it gives 15% to overseas visitors.
Thanks so much for this advice, I'm thinking I'm going to head to Santa Monica on the 3rd April, stay in a hotel near the pier and head back 6th or 7th to catch my plane back to Aus. If ANYONE wishes to join me for all or a few of the days in Santa Monica then let me know. And I just love Mexican food.
