Things to Do in L.A. with Kids

We are heading to Los Angeles for Fall Break! Matt and I know that our time with our young boys is going to go by fast, and we try to think of ways to savor it as much as possible. For us, going on as many family vacations as possible is one of those ways. At my school, we have a Fall Break, Winter Break, Spring Break, and Summer Break every year. These vacations are a time to build so many memories.

Here's what we're thinking for L.A. (please chime in if you have other ideas!).
  • The Farmer's Market for lunch
  • Date night at the Hollywood Bowl to watch concert on a blanket under the stars? 
  • Horseback riding
  • Griffith Observatory
  • Hiking in Runyon Canyon
  • IMAX at the California Science Center
  • La Brea Tar Pits and Museum?
  • UCLA (Meteorite Gallery)
  • Yoga
  • University of Southern California
  • Bike riding
  • Hiking (Temescal Gateway Park)
  • Sailing
  • Running

I'm a longtime reader and I live in LA with young kids! The tar pits are cool and LACMA museum next door has a fun place for kids to paint for free, and a yellow string thing to run through. Make sure to ride the trolley at the Grove/Farmer's market. There's also a barnes and nobles there. There is Harry Potter World at Univ. Studios but your kids are prob too young. Oh you can rent bikes and ride the santa monica bike path, and go to the beach. They will probably enjoy the griffith park Travel Town museum which has a mini train you can ride. Also the Noah's Ark at the Scirball cultural center is a cool play area with huge ark. I would probably skip USC since it's kind of out of the way. I'd be glad to answer any questions if you want, my email is trogatko at gmail :)

I adore The Huntington. They'd may me too young to appreciate the library and art collection but the gardens are phenomenal. The desert section is like a Seuss landscape. :)
