Itinerary for 5 days for me and my kids

Hi I would like to know some examples of what we can do in 5 days, I know many things.

I read the examples of itineraries in F.A.Q. section, just perfect but I need something more for kids.

I will be in the Beverly Hilton

You could go to the Santa Monica Pier, where they have some rides. The beach is also right there. Then over to the Third Street Promenade, also in SM. There are always street performers that are fun there.

You could also take them to the California Science Center at Exposition Park. Lots of kid friendly exhibits and activities. There is also an IMAX Theater, so you can see a movie. Also there are other museums next door, like the Natural History Museum. If you want, USC is right there. You can have them see a large university campus & maybe catch a USC game at the Galen Center, where they play both basketball & volleyball.

In Hollywood you can take in a movie at the El Capitan Theater(disney films) and have a soda pop next door at the disney cafe.

Griffith Observatory is always fun and I am sure your kids will have a blast. The Zoo is at Griffith Park aswell, so that could be some nice family time together

It's a little bit of a drive from Beverly Hills, but kids also tend to like the Queen Mary and the Aquarium in Long Beach.
