Half a day to be tourists in LA. What can I do with my parents and SO?

In April I'm vacationing to Las Vegas with my parents and my SO, and, because my mother has always wanted to see parts of LA, we were considering doing an excursion bus tour from LV to LA. My dad would not do well on a five hour bus ride, so we've started talking about renting a car instead so he can join us. We can stop the car along the way for him to stretch his legs, etc. Now, we just need to make it worth his while.
My mother wants to see Rodeo Drive and the walk of fame.
My dad would be interested in a local bus tour (a city tour), as that's his way of checking out new cities.
My SO wants to take a dip in the Pacific.
I? I'm easy-peasy. I just want family time.
Please suggest an itinerary for our 5 or 6 hour tour of LA! I have to put a pretty decent plan together to get my dad to spend 8 hours in a car. Our plan should include the items above (walk of fame, Rodeo Drive, a beach) and any of the following, or any awesome ideas you have:
city bus tour
studio tour/any other interesting tour
Also, we're not really interested in any map of the stars, look where so-and-so celebrity lives type-things, although we wouldn't rule out a tour which included this.
Bonus points for interesting places to stop between LV and LA, especially for food, but also shopping, whatever.
