Looking for the best things to do in Los Angeles this Presidents Day Weekend? Here are some events and activities to add to your list for the long weekend.

This Presidents Day weekend is looking a little tricky, starting with those trick shot wizards the Harlem Globetrotters, who are in Anaheim this weekend. The Nixon Library tries to convince us that Presidents Day is really Christmas (nice try, Tricky Dick!), the Reagan Library tries to convince us that Washington and Lincoln are stopping by (OK Boomer), and the Annenberg PetSpace goes all in on the demo-cat-ic process with some really cute animals. There are also Dinos Alive in Montebello, Superheroes at the Segerstrom in Costa Mesa, and the Princess and the Frog hopping into Hollywood. There are so many things to do in Los Angeles this weekend, it's a good thing we have that extra day to fit it all in...

Plus, discover the Best Hiking Trails in Los Angeles for Families, our tips on visiting the Top Attractions in Los Angeles for Kids, how to support and visit local Black-Owned Restaurants & Shops, and so much more.

Be sure to check with the venue for its COVID guidelines and requirements before heading out to any event. Many places in LA now require guests to show either proof of vaccination or a negative test; masking requirements are currently changing county by county.
