10 of California’s "Quirkiest" Fairs and Festivals
10 Bucket-List Worthy California Experiences
From bouncing over the whitecaps on a whale watching tour to white-knuckle roller coaster rides in some of the world’s most famous theme parks, California is one giant playground when it comes to family fun and adventures. And while other destinations might have theme parks or natural attractions fit for families, California’s world-class diversity of experiences means you can have it all. In the Golden State that can mean exploring the natural wonder of iconic parks like Yosemite and Redwood National Parks, riding a cable car up one of San Francisco’s storied streets or a joyride through Southern California theme parks such as Legoland, Magic Mountain and the amusement park that started it all, Disneyland.
Parents can also take heart in the fact that a family trip to California means something for everybody, not just the knee-highs. Unforgettable experiences like the Monterey Bay Aquarium are so enthralling, parents and kids alike will be having way too much fun to realize how much they’re learning. Add the many free attractions and events available such as San Diego’s holiday-themed December Nights at Balboa Park, and you can see why so many families call California their favorite fun-zone.
