You know how there are New Yorkers who have never been to the top of the Empire State Building? Don’t raise the L.A. version of that kid! With so much to do here, and traffic being, well, LA traffic, it’s easy to miss a few “gottas.” So, check our bucket list of the 10 things all kids growing up in Los Angeles should experience, and see what you can cross off — and where you should be heading this weekend.
See A Dodgers Game
We might be a little prejudiced, but we have to say that Dodger Stadium is one of the all time classic stadiums in the world (and it doesn’t hurt that we’ve got a pretty exciting team right now). Even if you’re not a baseball fan, there’s something special about seeing the palm trees wave in the background or watching the sun sink beyond the wave of blue seats while you munch a Dodger Dog and listen to Vin Scully call the game on your headphones. In the off-season, you can take a tour and go behind the scenes (and on the field!).
