Parents of kids who love boats, this is your week to be a hero. We launch Labor Day with the first ever LA Fleet Week, an event that the US military has been celebrating annually in other port cities since 1935. Active duty ships from the US Navy, Marines, Coast Guard, and Army dock in San Pedro to offer tours, demos, fireworks, and a STEM Expo. But wait—there's more! The week finishes with the annual arrival of the Tall Ships in Dana Point, including a Friday evening sunset sail and photo op.
And if two days of epic boat outings are not enough, there is always the option of filling the days in between with a visit to the Queen Mary or a whale watching cruise. It's enough to make a person crave a good seafood dinner; good thing we know some classic seafood shacks for summer evening indulgence.
As always, there are plenty more ideas to be found on the Mommy Poppins Event Calendar, as well as our picks for the month in our September GoList. School may be in session, but the fun carries on regardless; read on for our favorite outings this week.
