Things To Do and Weekend Activities for Los Angeles Families

Summer's over, and we're back in school doing some serious nose-to-the-grindstone big fat textbook learning, so it's time we talk about...

VACATION!!!!

Seriously, two weeks of reading, writing, and getting up on time to go to school are enough. We think you've earned the right to throw your feet up, eat mints off your pillow, and enjoy a $1000 vacation package to... [drum roll]... Smugglers Notch! It's our final giveaway package of the summer, and it is our biggest and bestest yet.

Even if you're not our big winner, you're a big winner! Because you are the recipient of a fun-filled weekend in Los Angeles (home to the stars!) packed to the rafters with tons o' things to do! We've got big boats and tasty critters and truck touching and sky booming. You can celebrate the cultures of Germany, the Philippines, and Mexico, of unicorns, faeries, and monsters. We've got free movies galore. We're turning friends into trading cards, the baseball diamond into our playground, and finding common ground in the boundaries that separate us. No doubt about it, just by living in Los Angeles, we are winning.

Keep reading for our prize-winning picks for this weekend...
