What to do for Christmas in Los Angeles for Families

Even though it is hot enough to go to the beach during Christmas in Los Angeles, it does not mean that families cannot find activities to get them in the holiday spirit!

Here are a couple of great activities to do with your kids on Christmas in Los Angeles:

1. Ice Skating Downtown

Many different venues have ice skating in Los Angeles, starting with Downtown on Ice.

2. Griffith Park DWP Festival of Lights

The LA Department of Water and Power takes over a stretch of road through Griffith Park with Los Angeles landmarks made of old-fashioned Christmas lights and decorates. It is a great drive or walk with kids.

3. LA Zoo

The Reindeer Romp at the LA Zoo is great fun for kids where they can see reindeer and do all kinds of holiday crafts!

4. Grinchmas

Universal Studios has a great area called Grinchmas with rides, activities and crafts for kids about Christmas.

5. Marina Del Rey Holiday Boats

There are a few boats that go out decorated for Christmas from the Marina Del Rey Harbor with Christmas themed dinners and carolers!

There is tons to see and do in LA on Christmas and lucky it is warm enough to go out with a light jacket sans snow boots! You can also take a drive along some of the Bel Air and Beverly Hills roads to see the great lights and carolers.
