Surrounded by mountain ranges, forests, valleys, beaches, and deserts, the metropolitan area of Los Angeles is home to over 17 million people.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Oak Canyon Nature Center and Venice Beach and Boardwalk. Take a break from the city and head to Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area and Santa Monica Bay. Get out of town with these interesting Los Angeles side-trips: Bergamot Station (in Santa Monica) and Anaheim (Disneyland Park & Disney California Adventure Park). Pack the 24th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Universal Studios Hollywood. There's still lots to do: see the sky in a new way at Griffith Observatory, appreciate the extensive heritage of Santa Monica Pier, explore the world behind art at Hammer Museum, and view the masterpieces at Annenberg Space for Photography.
