The Santa Monica Pier Aquarium is the Heal the bay’s marine education center, a great stop for any child! It’s also conveniently located on the Santa Monica Pier which features lots of rides, games, and of course, the beach just a few steps away!

Of course, if you run out of ideas, you can always get moving in LA to amusement parks like Six Flags Magic MountainKnott’s Berry FarmUniversal Studios, or my personal favorite Disneyland!

An essential part of any summer is swimming! Get moving in LA to a local pool near you. If a community pool is not for you, get moving in LA to one of the many beaches! No summer is complete without heading to the beach!

If none of these sound appealing to you, you can always have a movie day with your kids, sign them up for recreational sports at a local community center, or just attend the library for reading time. There are plenty of ways to keep your kids moving in LA!  How will you keep your kids moving and busy? Tell me about in the comments below!
