Family Kids Activity L.A. Travel Show This Weekend February 23 - 24 Are Plentiful.


If you're looking for something fun to do with the kids this weekend consider bringing them down to the 15th Annual Los Angeles Times Travel Show. You wouldn't normally think that a travel show is the place to let your children loose to have some fun. But this particular travel show is different and very family-friendly and there's going to be a lot of fun activities the youngsters will enjoy.

At a special media preview of the show that I attended at the iconic L.A. Times headquarters several weeks ago I got a sneak peek at what's in store for the show's attendees this year.

Kids and adults alike will enjoy special presentations from Wildlife Experience, a non-profit dedicated to wildlife conservation through community education. On both days of the show from 11-11:45 a.m. Wildlife Experience will be on stage with their WILD World Exotic Animal Show. They also invite the public to their booth during show hours to get to know them better.

Also entertaining will be Christopher Reynolds, LA Times Travel Journalist, talking about appreciate all there is right here in our Southern California backyard. In his engaging fashion, he'll present SoCal Close-Ups: Photography in Southern California from 11-11:45 a.m. and then SoCal Close-Ups: To Your Backyard and Beyond from 2-2:45 p.m. Both presentations will be given both days.
