In this article, I will navigate you through 6 places that you can visit in a single short flight to Los Angeles.

What is the best mode of travel?

The places that I am going to suggest are on the outskirts of Los Angeles, so I highly suggest a short flight to get there through LAX. According to, it is easy to navigate short trips to children’s favorite destinations in and around Los Angeles, and if you’re traveling during the summer season, you wouldn’t want to put your kids on the road in a car in the scorching heat of the sun.

If you are visiting Los Angeles for the first time with your kids, you cannot overlook Disneyland. Summer season is the best time to visit Disneyland because of the cool water rides around the little Mermaid theme. Your kids are surely going to have a great experience when you go there with them.

2. Children’s Museum at La Habra

The intriguing point about this museum is that it has been specially designed for kids, and is not as crowded as the conventional museums are. It has a small carousel, electric trains and a room where kids can play. The museum also has an “on stage” exhibition where kids can have fun and try different costumes. The interesting thing is that every room has fun activities where children can spend hours easily.

3. California Science Center

If you intend to spend half of the day at a very interesting place for your kids, the California science center is the ultimate stop. There are plenty of things for kids to see and do. It is located within the Exposition Park. The interesting thing about it is that there are many discovery rooms where kids can play and learn a lot of science facts.
