How does a parent stop their couch potato kids from spending the entire day glued to one screen or another? Where can a parent take them that will not break the family piggy bank? Where, in Los Angeles can you find museums, nature trails, hiking trips, or general places of interest for free?
Los Angeles For Free: The best places to go for free with your family in Los Angeles, is a handy-dandy Kindle book that answers the above parental predicaments. This is a guide to free attractions in LA where a parent/guardian can take kids to educate and entertain, while spending quality time as a family.
LA is known for its theme parks, a must see for most tourists visiting, but where do local residents go if they want to experience the ‘real’ Los Angeles that is not catering to tourists only? The cost of living in LA being what it is, residents cannot afford to take their kids to theme parks often. However, this city has many places that are free, but not many residents know of these hidden gems veiled within urban surroundings.
This guide to free attractions/ things to do with kids pretty much covers attractions that are popular and those that are not so, but yet are in some way distinctive to qualify for a spot in the book. The book spans the entire county of Los Angeles and its nearby suburbs, to even free places in the neighboring counties.
Unlike the city that grew and grew with no proper planning, this guide is planned and easy to navigate. The guide is organized by area locations that act like chapters. It helps a visitor in a certain location easily able to find other attractions within that location. Within each location each attraction is alphabetically organized. There is a brief summary accompanying the location information, which helps parents to know what activities to expect and helps to pre-plan a day trip in advance.
The vastnesses of Los Angeles geography makes knowledge of these places difficult to traverse, unless one has a definite destination in mind. Some of these attractions cater to a specific demographic too. Most Los Angelinos, unless interested in the subject, are unaware of these free attractions and only those lucky few who live within the area know of these attractions.
The places listed gives a family an opportunity to spend time with each other while allowing them to explore the uniqueness of this city. This guide is also invaluable to parents who want to instill a love of nature and culture and pride of place within their children.
