Little Boy Meets Giant Sloth at La Brea Tar Pits
Private Tours Are For Kids, Too
We really appreciate that parents ask us about how much fun their children might have on a private tour of Los Angeles with us. We love that they care about their interests as we drive around surrounded by so much movie history and technology. What will interest a child in and around Hollywood? Well, being just big kids ourselves (or in touch with our inner child), we know where to go to keep the young folks aboard our tours fascinated and engaged while also informing and captivating their parents. One terrific location is the La Brea Tar Pits. Green grass fields interrupted with stinky tar pits. In the summer there are people down in the tar pits playing in the muck (really, scientists carefully removing fossils). The Page Museum has reconstructed skeletons of some of the creatures that roamed the area long before movie stars did. Giant sloths, saber-tooth cats, camels, mastodons, dire wolves…all sorts of monsters most folks do not associate with Los Angeles, at least not like they think of Frankenstein, Dracula and Wolfman. We can also visit the Nickelodeon Studios and the Henson Studios, a celebrity dog park, the Venice Skate Park, Fern Gully in Griffith Park, the carousel in Griffith Park or on the Santa Monica Pier. Depending on what the kids like there are all sorts of parks and trails, celebrity homes and hangouts that will interest them. We make lots of stops for running around and climbing and know the best places to stop for treats and drinks. Lunch where the waiters sing (Miceli’s) or the best hot dogs in Hollywood (Pink’s). Believe us when we say the kids will not forget their custom tour of Los Angeles. And the parents will have some really wonderful photographs of the kids loving L.A.
