Surrounded by mountain ranges, forests, valleys, beaches, and deserts, the metropolitan area of Los Angeles is home to over 17 million people.
Attractions like Disneyland Park and The Getty Center make great kid-friendly stops. Step out of the city life by going to Venice Beach and Boardwalk and Self Realization Fellowship Lake Shrine Temple. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Los Angeles: Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Dana Point), Santa Monica (Santa Monica Mountains, South Bay Bicycle Trail, & more) and Anaheim (Disney California Adventure Park, Downtown Disney, & more).

There's lots more to do: look and learn at Griffith Observatory, explore the engaging exhibits at Travel Town, learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, and admire the majestic nature at Topanga State Park.
