  • Whale Watching in Newport Landing, CA

They offer trips year-round, but if you go during the late winter or early spring, you’re almost bound to see some of the beautiful, enormous creatures during their annual migration.

  • La Brea Tar Pits, CaliforniaLa Brea Tar Pits: Get down and dirty with dinosaur fossils and life-sized replicas of other extinct animals! If the kids get bored looking at critters that aren’t around any longer, they also have dolphin exhibits to reel them back in.
