A few places that are fun with babies in Los Angeles include the Griffith Observatory, which is a fascinating look at the Universe around us.  The Grove is an upscale area right beside the famous Farmers Market and walking down Rodeo Drive just to look at the outrageous and lavish stores is something we always find fun.  Hollywood offers the wax and entertainment museums, and Santa Monica’s 3rd Street Promenade will fill an entire day with its restaurants, buskers, retail stores and other oddities such as garden and fountain sculptures and religious messengers handing out pamphlets.

When we go to LA, we always book through HostelBookers which offers affordable hotel and hostel options all over the world.  This time, we stayed at the Cadillac Hotel in Venice Beach, which was excellent.  The hotel has over 100 years of history behind it, but offers various modern amenities including condo-style rooms with kitchens and separate bedrooms.  This proved very useful as after the baby went to bed, we were able to stay in the other room and didn’t need to worry about waking her up.

The most important thing that we found when traveling with a baby is that despite the fact that you are on ‘vacation,’ the baby still has a schedule of naps and feeds that go where you go, no matter where you are in the world.  Knowing this before you jump into things is a good way of being prepared when you still spend half your day just taking care of the child.  

But traveling as much as possible should be on everyone’s bucket list, so having a baby should not hinder this experience. With a little adapting you can have your airplane cake and eat your child’s cake too. Because if you buy them their own seat, the airline is obliged to get you another meal. :)
