Toddler Adventures in Downtown Los Angeles

We decided to spend a day exploring downtown LA on our last trip to California.  I looked all over but was unable to find a large source of information available for things to do with a toddler while traveling in LA.


Grand Park had a nice infinity fountain which my son loved splashing in- maybe a little too much. There was also public restrooms across from the fountain. 

Grand Central Market- Lights, People, Yummy smells it was a complete toddler experience.  We sampled some Thai, Salvadorian, really got a little bit of everything. Crowded with lunch rush, but great people watching. 

We walked to Pershing Square but most of it was fenced off in anticipation of holiday decorations to be set up.

We went to LA Skyspace on top of the US Bank tower. This was a huge hit with our son! He still talks about getting to drink his juice on the tower.  He was unable to do the slide, which did not seem worth the expense as just walking around and being on the platform were nice.  We just walked up to the window for our tickets as there was no available tickets showing online.

Camping in Wyoming's Big Horn Mountains

We recently spend a long weekend camping in Wyoming's Big Horn Mountains.  We chose to not use a campside and did primitive camping, our first time doing so with our son. He is luckily an adventurous toddler!  We enjoyed smores by the fire under a huge star full of skies, fishing along the creeks, and doing some hiking for amazing mountain vistas. 

Even though we were hear in July it did get down to low 40s at night, so make sure you always pack some warm layers for the nights and early mornings, and remove layers as the day warms up.
