25 Things To Do with Kids in Burbank

A bucket list for Burbank families - things to do with San Fernando Valley kids

You've probably done several of the fun things to do listed on our LA bucket list of 100+ things to do with Los Angeles kids, but today might be one of those days when you want to stay close to home - close to beautiful downtown Burbank. Just as we've helped the folks of Culver CityHollywood, Pasadena, and Santa Monica to stay local with kids on days when taking to the highways sounds insane, we now turn our eyes to the family-friendly community of Burbank, where it's easy to spend a happy day without use of the carpool lane.
