Tour the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the Grauman's Chinese Theatre
There's something about seeing the embedded stars of so many High-profile entertainers that's magical and quite nostalgic. But to children, it's a fascinating novelty, even if they haven't ever heard of the entertainers. It's a similar story with Grauman's Chinese Theatre, which attracts adults primarily because of its strong identification with the entertainment industry and its stars. Handprints, footprints and the autographs of celebrities are embedded in the cement of its forecourt, and it's a place where adults take another trip down the road called nostalgia.
Explore the Local Theme Parks
With Knott's Berry Farm, Universal Studios Hollywood, Six Flags California, Disney's California Adventure and the two-ton giant that's Disneyland, Los Angeles city has more than its fair share of theme parks. And best of all, there's something for all members of the family in every one of them.
Museums For All Ages
Your children might be bored if you visit some of the fine art museums in Los Angeles. But you might have a hard time dragging them away from the La Brea Tar Pits and Page Museum, the California Science Center and the Natural History Museum. These all seem to fascinate children, but they can be immensely interesting to adults as well.
Los Angeles is a larger-than-life kind of place and its attractions are too many to explore even in a month. It's even more so for children, with many of its attractions seemingly being designed just for kids. That's deceptive, however, because almost all those same places are equally entertaining for adults. Other interesting activities include swimming, surfing, and sunbathing along the city's extensive beach, visiting the Griffith Observatory, participating in local annual events and visiting the local parks.
