Mother’s Day is next weekend, and – surprise – your parents are coming to visit! When mapping out activities to do with your parents, it calls for more close attention to detail. You’ll need to plan both the cultural side of the hang outs – museums and city’s biggest attractions – and the insider’s look on LA, thus, keeping your parents in-the-know. You’ll also want to explore the breathtaking Los Angeles landscapes, but no overdo with the intensity of the walk/hike. Spending time with parents requires a certain balance. But don’t worry – we are here to help! Here are the four things to do with your parents in Los Angeles:
Gardens at the Huntington, 1151 Oxford Rd, San Marino, CA 91108
