One of the reasons I appreciate living in Los Angeles is the sheer number of experiences I can provide my son. We are a museum-going family and visit several of our favorites on a regular basis.
Last week, we saw the only external tank on the planet, and then a few days later, we saw the fossils for the state dinosaur, the Augustynolophus.
Unfortunately, I think locals sometimes forget to take advantage of all their city has to offer. So here’s a suggestion for the new year — play tourist. Visit the California Science Center or the Natural History Museum. (We were at both last week). Check out the Petersen Automative Museum or the GRAMMY Museum. (We were there fairly recently). And, if you’re still unsure about where to go, check out some of the guides I’ve written for MomsLA.com. You’ll find guides to the L.A. Zoo, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and more.

Thanks for giving such great advive to me and others.
Thank you, Janet. I’m in awe of all your travels and adventures!
Great suggestions. Everyone in every city across the nation should read this. So often, we take for granted all the riches we have in our own backyards. Bravo that you and your family appreciate yours!
Thank you, Diane. And yet, I always feel as if there is so much more for us to explore!
