Family Los Angeles

California might be the perfect family holiday destination, but so much is there to see and do in LA alone that your children would be just as delighted if you only booked them a week-long family holidays to Los Angeles.

The good news is that the Original Travel team of USA experts are on hand to plan the perfect tailor-made family holiday to Los Angeles, explaining what are the cast iron must-sees and what you can potentially leave for another time. We might even find you time to explore some of the other family-friendly attractions the Golden State has to offer. Whatever the eventual tailor-made itinerary involves, you will enjoy our range of additional services from fast track airport check-in and security and lounge access (even if you're flying economy), and access to our clued-up local Concierge when in the States. As it's a long flight to LA our Sharky & George fun packs, full of games and quizzes for three to ten-year olds, are also invaluable.

So that's the preamble. What about the action when you are actually on your family holiday to Los Angeles? There's so much to see and do you can do things by theme. Are your children movie-buffs? Then spot the Hollywood sign; wander the Walk of Fame spotting movie star's handprints; go behind the scenes on a Warner Brothers studio tour; and enjoy rides inspired by films such as Harry Potter and Jurassic Park at the Universal Studios Hollywood amusement park (children need to be eight and over). There's also some place called Disneyland Park in Anaheim.

If the children are more active then hit Venice Beach and Santa Monica Pier by bike or rollerblades for the premium people watching and fun and games followed by monkeying around in the waves; or pop over to Malibu to walk on wilder beaches and watch pro surfers in action offshore. Alternatively, walk up through the park to Griffith Observatory for great views back across the city and the beach.

Los Angeles is also a superb staging post for family-friendly California road trips, and we can help to tailor-make a great itinerary for this to. So what are you waiting for? Lights, camera, action!
