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!

Union Station

The biggest rail station in the west is a pretty building from the outside, but the real grandeur is inside, where it's all high-beamed ceilings, stained glass and marbled floors. Take a seat on one of the wooden benches and take in the hustle and bustle of the train station, then head on over to Olvera Street for some much-deserved tacos. You can take the Metro here as part of the day’s adventure.

Did we miss any super cool, kid-spirational spots?  We’d love to know your favorite architecture in LA.
