While Los Angeles is known for its lively nightlife scene, it’s not the only thing it offers. In fact, the city offers a number of events and activities that are great for the whole family. Consider some of these ways to enjoy Los Angeles with the little ones in your family while you stay at Dunes Inn Wilshire.
The Los Angeles Zoo is a great place to spend time with friends and family. If any of your kids like giraffe’s consider taking part in the giraffe feedings where your kid can feed a real life giraffe! Feeding occurs twice daily at 11am and again at 2:30pm. A hippo encounter tour is also offered on weekends and holidays. During this exclusive tour, you’ll get up close with hippos and go behind the scenes as you learn more about the hippos from their caretakers.
Have your kids ever wanted to ride on a pony? Well now they can! Simply stop by Griffith Park and head to the pony ride area. Here, there are a number of opportunities for children to ride on a pony. For the little ones, 1 years old and up, enjoy the “Pony Sweep”, which is essentially a merry-go-round style pony ride where ponies walk around in a guided circle while your child is secured to the pony. If you have a child that’s a little older, they might enjoy the slow pony ride. With this, the ponies slowly walk around the track with your child secured to the saddle. Medium ponies are offered to those 3 and up with ponies walking a little quicker and trotting. The big ponies are for those 7 and up that can handle a soft gallop. Wagon rides are also offered for the whole family. Rides start at under $10 per person! Visit http://www.griffithparkponyride.com/ for more information.
