If your kids are a little older, then Universal Studios Hollywood is a great theme park to visit. With the new addition of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, you really can’t go wrong! From Minions to dinosaurs, Universal Studios Hollywood has anything a movie buff could ever dream of. Make time to take a ride on the Studio Tour where you can see real movie sets and the special effects involved. Make your way over to Super Silly Fun Land to get into the life of Gru and the girls with the Minions.

LEGOLAND: If you decide to take your family a little further south, make a stop in Carlsbad to visit LEGOLAND California! If you haven’t taken your family here, it really is a site to see. This park is PERFECT for little kids. You can see landmarks like the Empire State Building, Golden Gate Bridge, the White House and more, all made out of LEGOs! Once you are done experiencing the rides, shows and exhibits you can head to the SEA LIFE Aquarium to have an educational and aquatic experience. If you are visiting during the summer months, you can cool off at the LEGOLAND Water Park in the lazy river or on an exhilarating water slide. To see all these fun attractions, make sure you book a Hopper ticket when planning your trip.

San Diego: Last but definitely not least is San Diego, California. If a relaxing vacation is what you are looking for, you’ve found it.
