Los Angeles for Kids

Looking for some attractions in Los Angeles for kids? Here are our top tips but first a word of advise: LA sightseeing with kids could be an exhausting as well as expensive ordeal, unless you do your research and plan ahead, book all your tickets in advance and save both time and money that way.

The second thing to keep in mind is that LA is a huge city, it’s actually 88 cities in one county. And with the famous LA heavy traffic, pre-planning is a must, as you don’t want to get stuck with your kids on the road all day.

Travel in Los Angeles with Kids

So let’s start with the first LA attraction. Most families might spend their entire vacation in Disneyland, but actually, there are many parks in the area, including a great amusement park on the Santa Monica pier. Other attractions are Legoland and Universal Studios. And then there’s places in the city such as Madame Tussaud’s and several studio tours, also very popular with children. A good idea would be to note down the attractions suitable for your family and plan your days around them.

If you want to keep an eye on the high admission costs, then purchasing a Go Los Angeles card is probably a good idea. This city card offers free entry to more than 40 attractions, including 3 theme parks and the Aquarium. But more importantly, the card allows you to do and explore more of the city simply because you can… Check our offers for more information about L.A tourism sights.

Griffith Park is another popular attraction for families in LA, as it combines some beautiful nature sights, a planetarium and the LA Zoo. A great idea is to take some time off the busy city, bring some nice food and head for a picnic in the nature in this wonderful park.

Here’s a few more ideas in Los Angeles for kids… For fun and education, you could head to Exposition Park where a few museums are located along a beautiful rose garden. You could visit the Natural History Museum or the California Science Center, which is free if you hold the Go LA card. Or enjoy a free entry to an Imax movie with one of the biggest screens in the world, equal to the height of 7 story building – it’s all possible with the city pass.

Finally lets talk about the Hollywood Walk of Fame. All tourists end up here eventually, but did you know that among other stars in this side walk you can find Bugs Bunny and Mickey Mouse? We are sure this is something your kids would like to see! Watch the rest of our LA videos to get all the tips you need for a perfect vacation with the whole family.
