What to do with kids in California?

We'll be traveling to California next month. We'll be staying in San Diego, will be visiting LA and Hollywood and Aneheim. We'll be there 12 days! Please give us ideas of fun stuff to do with children in Southern California. We already are going to LegoLand, San Diego zoo and wild animal park, Disneyland... What beach is good to go to also? Thank you!

  • Mission Beach in SD is my favorite; there's an amusement park there called Belmont Park.. Sea World in SD. Balboa Park has lots of great museums including the Reuben H Fleet Air and Space museum. And check the Del Mar Fairgrounds website for activities there.

    La Brea Tar Pits in LA. Knotts Berry Farm is in Buena Park...if the kids like roller coasters it's great, otherwise skip it. BP also has several theme dinner attractions: pirates and Medieval Times. If you want to head all the way up to Santa Monica, you can visit the pier there.

  • The beaches in Anaheim are better. Long Beach is neat, but I'd not wanna head too close to L.A for the beaches---the beaches farther south are best, imo. Try Seal beach. Universal Studios is fun, also in Buena Park not far from Disneyland is Knotts Berry Farm and down the road from that is the Hollywood Wax Museum which is definitely cool. There's a six fags above L.A. called Magic Mountain if you want more thrilling rides than Disneyland. Hollywood is a fun day, do Sunset Blvd and the walk of stars on Hollywood blvd, go to Graman's Chinese Theatre. If you're into hob-nobbing, go down Rodeo drive and pretend to shop. lol Drive the tourAnd it's really cool just driving around the Hollywood/Beverly Hills area---keep your eyes open, look in cars---you just may see someone. Seriously,,,in Bevery Hills it is LIKELY you'll see someone if you look around, especially in nicer cars. Have fun. I miss it down there sometimes.
