When you’re a parent, it can be difficult to remember what family vacations were like back when you had no interest in the same things as your parents. Instead of dragging your kid to a series of adult-centric locales, why not take them to see Malibu attractions and do things that they’ll find entertaining and engaging?
By checking out these kid-friendly Malibu attractions and activities, you and your family may just make your best vacation memories yet!
Fun Things to Do and Places to See for Kids
First and foremost, you can’t take a trip to Malibu without going to the beach. The area is simply too gorgeous not to take advantage of once-in-a-lifetime views and a serene atmosphere. For the best time, head to Point Dume State Beach, Zuma Beach, or Malibu Surfrider Beach. Malibu is especially renowned for its surfing conditions, drawing the likes of everyone from international surfers to local transplant legends like the late Duke Kahanamoku. Whether your kid likes to surf or just wants to play in the sand, they’re sure to have fun in these scenic places.
If your kid likes to pick out souvenirs on their vacations, the Malibu Country Mart is a charming place to start. This shopping and dining center even features playgrounds with slides, swings, sand, sculptures, and gardens. Alternatively, you can have your kids play at Malibu Bluffs Park’s six acres, which includes picnic areas, a playground for younger children, and a whale watching station.
Museums like Legacy Park, the Getty Villa, and the Historic Adamson House and Malibu Lagoon Museum, as well as live performance venues like the Lisa Smith Wengler Center for the Arts at Pepperdine University, allow you and your kids to expand your knowledge of the area while entertaining yourselves with additional insight into the history, environment, arts, and culture of Malibu during your stay.
Finally, for a family-friendly bite to eat that comes with an unbeatable view, Paradise Cove Beach Café is the ultimate dining destination. It’s literally on the beach, offering the opportunity to stick your feet in the sand during your meal.
