Yes I know, summer is almost over, but I now have my kids home for a few weeks before school starts, and I keep on seeing other moms ask the same question. I just ran across this website,http://familycampersunite.weebly.com/miscellaneous.html, and it lists many cool and fun activities for families. I am just going to make a list of all of the other suggestions, that are low cost or free:
- Annenberg Beach House
- The Aquarium at Santa Monica Pier
- Adventure City
- Tongva Park Splash Pad
- Cabrillo beach museum
- The waterbus in Marina Del Rey is $2 a person round trip
- El dorado nature center for taking walks.
- Grand Park Splash Pad Downtown Los Angeles, you can take the metro straight there, clean and safe
- Lake Balboa Park
- Zimmer Museum
Just google for more info, many other popular activities and places are in the link above, but the ones above I highly recommend and some of them are new that I will definitely check out before the summer ends.
