We are coming first time to La landing on 29th June heading back on 4 th. July. What can we cover. Is going to sequoia national park even a option with 2 year old. What else can we cover in and around LA( except Disney)
My first reaction was that I would not recommend Sequoia with only 4 days available. It’s about a 4 to 5 hour drive. There’s plenty to do here in LA. But if it’s something that you want to do, and you are okay with being in the car so much, you could do it. I would recommend Yosemite over Sequoia. I would also try to plan such that you aren’t hitting LA rush hour traffic. Finding suitable lodging inside of the park may kill the idea.
On the full version of this webpage (non mobile version), on the right hand side, under top topics, are sightseeing suggestions. I think that there’s also an article for sightseeing with children.
With a toddler you are looking for attractions that you can go to and enjoy, that are easy for the whole family. Consider the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, the LA Zoo, the gardens at the Huntington Library, the Getty Center, the view from the Griffith Park Observatory, and the museums around and including the La Brea Tar Pits.
Ralph has recapped it nicely. I like Seki (the combined Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks (and think the toddler would too) but as mentioned above, it's a 4 hour each way from LA so it would require an overnight there.
Here are great family things to do in LA if you want to enjoy us at all:
You are planning terribly late for the National Parks over a holiday, too. If you want advise about them, please refer to their very helpful National Parks official website or the Sequoia Kings Canyon TripAdvisor forum.
