- Check out the Los Angeles Zoo.
If the kids are interested in animals, there’s no better way to spend an afternoon than taking a walk around the Los Angeles Zoo. The zoo features animals from around the world and a beautiful botanical garden. Its large campus (133 acres) means that it doesn’t often feel crowded even on a busy day.
In addition to the zoo’s typical sights, shows, and activities, many kid-friendly events take place at the zoo throughout the year. Visit https://www.lazoo.org/ to find out which events are going on this summer.
