25 fun things to do with your kids in Los Angeles...and most of them are free :)

I had plans to put up pics of our adventure to Grey Stone Mansion up tonight...but this is the only photo that will load...so for tonight, here's one pic :)

We enjoyed this place so much and love so many other fun places like it in town. Los Angeles is filled with wonderful adventure spots! Here's a handful of the ones we love, you just might enjoy them too :)
There's tons, so here's just a few ideas and the links to them below!

Unless it has a $ next to it,  it's FREE :)

1, Greystone Mansion Park: exploring, history and gardens

2. Leonis Adobe : Summer "Little Ranchers Program" (so fun!! and $2 for kids/free for parents :)$

3. Orcutt Ranch: for picnics, exploring, history and gardens

4. Griffith Park Observatory

5. Los Angeles Zoo $

6. Adamson House Malibu: exploring, history, picnic, beach

7. The Grove: kids summer program

8. The Americana: kids summer program

9. Local Public Library: reading times, craft times, movie nights

10. Malibu State Creek Park: wide trail hiking and exploring ($ for parking, but lovely wide trails easy for little hikers!)

21. Franklin Canyon Ponds and Nature Center

22. Travel Town @ Griffith Park (free admission, $2.50 train rides)

23. Los Encinos Park and Pond: Just a shady private park tuned right off Ventura Blvd.

My husband and I recently took our kids (ages 4 and 2, two of each) to the Wildlife Learning Center in Chatsworth (bought tickets off Groupon)...close by was the Nethercutt museum (FREE!!)...so we took them there, too. They loved both places!

Carly,
Most museums offer a free day once per month - usually it's the first Thursday of the month. You might check ones like Norton Simon, and LA County to see if they still do that. :-)

Yes, Kin we've been to the wildlife learning center but haven't checked out the Nethercutt Collection! Thanks for the idea :)

Pur et Simple, great idea to see when their free days are!
