The homely feel to Greenspot is what we really enjoy about this farm, it’s the least commercialized out of all the other pumpkin patches we’ve visited this year and we like that.
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.
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.
Adventure Playground Irvine’s hands-on design allows kids of all ages to get dirty and show off their creative side. Large Lego Blocks enable kids to make life-size versions for whatever they can imagine. We highly recommend a visit if you’re looking for something fun to do with the kids in Orange County.
In December, families from all over SoCal visit Logan’s Candies to watch them make their signature peppermint candy canes. The 45-minute presentation goes from boiling the sugar into bending the candy into its iconic shape. At the end of the demo, you can even form your unique candy cane!
