Free in November: 30 Free Things To Do with Kids in Los Angeles

As we shift gears from picking pumpkins to picking Christmas trees, many of us brace for the high cost of the Season of Giving. With all the ways we need to spend this month, it's a relief to know there are still plenty of things to do in Los Angeles in November without ever swiping a credit card. From the Day of the Dead to Santa’s Sled, it's time to kick off winter with a frugal bang.
