Family Friendly Activities in Los Angeles

As vacation planning time rolls round again, you may still be remembering the trials and tribulations of trying to find a vacation destination that appealed to ALL the members of your family. What was wonderful for the oldest was torture for the youngest, and what was crazy awesome for the teenagers had you pulling your hair out in frustration and boredom. All family vacations are not created equal!

This year, however, if you plan a trip to Los Angeles and stay in one of our Luxury Rental Group vacation escapes, you may achieve the unachievable: a family vacation enjoyed by every single member of your party! Keep reading for a list of family friendly activities in Los Angeles to participate in during your unforgettable California vacation!

La Brea Tar Pits and Museum, 5801 Wilshire Boulevard

Normally we would try to avoid museums in our family friendly activities lists, but the La Brea Tar Pits and Museum isn’t normal at all. Home to the remains of pre-historic animals, the opportunity to go back to a time before buildings, cars, and celebrities is fascinating to people of all ages!

Bob Baker Marionette Theater, 1345 West 1st Street

Puppets are funny, interesting, and upon occasion, more than a bit creepy, but a visit to the Bob Baker Marionette Theater should still be placed near the top of your bucket list! In business since 1963 and designated as a Los Angeles Historic Cultural Monument, this theater gives you the opportunity to laugh out loud as you watch the antics of the puppets performing classics such as Strange Soiree and Women in Vaudeville.

Visit Grand Park, 200 North Grand Avenue

Fountains, splash pads, and a playground filled with Dr. Seuss-like equipment: What better way is there to spend a sunny day in Los Angeles than with a family friendly LA visit to the park? Plan a picnic, a stroll, or some time at the splash pad; even adults love the feel of cold water splashed on them during the hottest days of summer!

The Heart of the Foothills, Sponsored by CicLAvia

Turning the streets into parks, this special event, happening on April 22 from 9AM until 4PM, allows you to ride bikes, skate, or dance in the streets of Los Angeles, giving our air a breather from the cars that generally rule the roads! Held in compliance with city rules and approval, these fun events happen periodically throughout the year. Check out for more information on when the next one will take place!
