Los Angeles is a great place to be a kid. Maybe the best. The weather lets our children play outside all year, and our city and local businesses offer an abundance of free, affordable, and fun activities. These are just 5 of the literally thousands of things to do, and if your kids ever tell you they’re bored, you can explain to them what it was like growing up next to a cornfield in Indiana–or how 30 years ago L.A. absolutely did not have so many activities specifically for kids.
The following are not ranked, but they are numbered because it’s just easier to read that way.
1. Huntington Gardens
Always amazing, and has a children’s garden
3. Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens
Just got a new female tiger, Indah
4. Aquarium of the Pacific
5. Griffith Park
When one kid wants to go on a merry-go-round, and another wants to go on a train ride, but their friends want to see ponies, there’s Griffith Park
