When you’re going on a family vacation, you have to mix things up. A little bit of this and that is the best recipe to make a family vacation worthwhile. That’s because what the kids will love, the adults might not. And what the adults love, the kids don’t find interesting.
But with Los Angeles, things are better. You won’t need to worry too much about planning on a micro-level. It has everything and for everyone. So instead of everyone compromising to come to a middle ground, they can have fun by doing everything together. It’s truly the ideal spot for a family vacation.
From going sightseeing to relaxing on the beach to getting involved in fun-filled activities, there are plenty of options for you and your family. Read on to find out why you should go to LA for your next family vacation.
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter
It’s one of those places that are suitable for everyone regardless of their age and background. It’s part of Universal Hollywood, but it’s a brand new addition. Did you know that there’s a Hogwarts Castle there? Yes, that’s right! You can go visit it, take some pictures, and make memories. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, get on the Harry Potter-themed rides along with your children. You won’t regret it!
Feeling thirsty? Buy a butter-beer. One sip, and you’ll be craving for more. You can also get on the Dragon’s Challenge. Fair warning: it’s going to test your limits, so be prepared!
The Getty Villa
Wanting to experience a bit of history and culture? Head to the Getty Villa. It’s located in Malibu, right off the Pacific Coast Highway. If you’ve ever wondered what an ancient Roman country house looked like, this is your chance to experience it.
From Stone Age to the end of the Roman Empire, the villa displays arts from all periods. If you’re a history buff, you’re definitely going to fall in love with it. The villa is beautifully built, and you’ll be mesmerized by the wonderful garden features – arbors, ponds, and fountains.
You don’t have to pay anything for admission as it’s free. However, you will need to book a slot to enter as it can sometimes get very crowded. The parking fee is also minimal – $15. Except for Tuesdays, you can go there every day as early as 10 am.
More Physical Activity
Another reason why you should go to Los Angeles is that there are plenty of opportunities for hiking and biking. People in Los Angeles are generally very health conscious. Everywhere you go, you’ll see people enjoying a healthy lifestyle. You can join them by going for a hike. In LA, you’ll find plenty of hiking trails where you can enjoy nature and fresh air.
If you’re not into hiking, there’s always biking. LA, particularly Santa Monica, is very well-known for its biking trails. If you’re not in the mood for either, you can always get involved in the fitness buzz that’s electrifying the town by joining a Yoga group. You’ll get back from your vacation feeling more fit and energetic.
Day trips are awesome! You can sight-see, experience the wonderful sunshine on your face, and have a bit of fun. You know the best place to start? San Diego. It’s only a 2-hour drive from LA. You can also head to Palm Springs if you feel like it.
Rent a car for you and your family and go for an overnight trip. You can experience LA better this way. It also saves you some expenses as you won’t be taking extra flights. Considering you’re traveling with a family, booking a flight for all can be expensive. Not to mention you’ll be cooped up in an airplane and missing out on the view.
LA is the best when it comes to authentic and cheap food. You won’t find anything like this anywhere in the US. You can find tantalizing bites at just $10 all over the city. From Chinese to Vietnamese and Mexican to Indian, you can enjoy everything at affordable rates.
Of course, you can go to fancier places if you’re in the mood to spend some money. But considering you’re traveling with family, it can get pretty expensive!
Wondering how to get around town? Rent a luxury car and travel comfortably. Bentley Continental, Rolls Royce, Chevrolet corvette, and Lamborghini are just some of the options you can find at LA Exotic Rentals.
