Whether it’s LEGOs, K’Nex, Lincoln Logs, or just plain old wood blocks, kids love to build and create. Here in Los Angeles we’ve got some amazing examples of architecture that will inspire you’re little Lautner or growing Geary. These buildings are impressive, cool, and anything but boring – and most are in unexpected places and totally touchable. So take your tot on a structural and instructional tour of the city that will get their wheels turning – then go home and see what you can create!
Oldest Operating McDonalds
Once upon a time, McDonalds had just one arch. Also, there was no drive through. This McDonalds, the oldest still in operation, is walk up only. Take the drive to see this landmark, which is old enough to be on the National Register of Historic Places. Oogling the mid century architecture is free. Happy Meals are extra.
10207 Lakewood Blvd.
Did we miss any super cool, kid-spirational spots? We’d love to know your favorite architecture in LA.
