Los Angeles for Kids: Water Sports

Apr 4, 2008
When you take your children on a vacation, they never get the most out of the experience. Oh, they might enjoy watching the surfers, or the water skiers, and even the variety of performers, but simply watching is nothing compared to the actual experience itself. Fortunately, in Los Angeles California, the involvement of the kids is just as important as that of the attractions themselves. The Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce has arranged ways in which the children themselves can get involved, hands on!

Catching The Waves:- On manner in which they meet these ends is the Perfect Day Surf Camp. At this one-day activity both the children and their parents can learn the exciting extreme sport of surfing. These can be group lessons or private lessons and you can work around your own vacation schedule. Among the topics covered in the exciting course, are environmental respect and surfing safety.

Beach Fun

Another hands-on beach activity is the After School Beach Club. This is an exciting and extremely popular after hours beach event where kids of all ages can learn to use boogie boards, practice the skill of sand surfing, various types of ball games, and even many different crafts. This is an excellent opportunity for the parents and adults to get out, see the sites and do some shopping or to just simply spend some quality time together.

Adventure City

Next the exotic city of Los Angeles offers the intriguing experience of Adventure City, a quaint little amusement park that is oriented towards the younger children. Here your kids can enjoy very safe rides that will thrill them and leave them wanting more, with no danger of accidents. One fun ride located in Adventure City is the Miniature Train. This is an actual miniature version of a locomotive that will carry them around a big track. If the kids are looking for a ride with a little more spice, there is always the airplane ride. For the nine or older kids, there is a calm roller coaster ride. The Adventure City Park offers tons of activities, including an arcade and an outdoor theatre with regular shows.

Time Travel

If you are seeking an all day event for your child, you might just want to consider the Knott's Berry Farm. Though the name makes one consider that this might be nothing more than a farm, in actuality, it is a multitude of fun and exciting activities for the kids. One of the more well known is the Ghost town. This is a recreated California western town with actors performing gunfights and showdowns. Here the children can ride an amazing flume ride from within an artificial log and actually pan for REAL gold.

While many vacation spots offer opportunities and attractions for families, very few actually concentrate on the children themselves. For the caring parent who wishes to make the vacation experience a lasting one for their children, Los Angeles is the place!
