We headed over to Los Rios Rancho in Oak Glen to pick some end of season strawberries. We’re big fans of the Oak Glen area on a normal year. It’s a great little town with a lot of family-friendly u-pick farms.
For weeks I’ve been reluctant to write anything about the Coronavirus (COVID-19)and self-quarantine. Scrolling through feeds, it seems impossible to draw a firm stance on the issue without being shouted down by friends and family skeptical of the seriousness at hand.
For a roadside attraction, the Cabazon Dinosaurs is a must-visit if you’re driving through. Initially opened in 1975 by Claude Bell, the Dinosaurs were initially built to attract travelers to his now-closed restaurant. Still, the dinosaurs were made famous in classic 80’s movies like Pee Wee’s Big Adventure and The Wizard.
The Natural History Museum Los Angeles is a great place to bring the kids. The dinosaur exhibits and animal dioramas are awe-inspiring. While it will cost a family of 4 about $45 to visit, NHM also offers a free admission day once a month, so start planning your visit today!
Walking the La Brea Tar Pits, you can’t help but think of the giant mastodon elephants and saber-tooth tigers that once shared this space. Being there makes it easy to imagine animals getting stuck in the tar some 50,000 years ago. It’s a great family-friendly place to visit with the kids.
