Topanga Living Cafe
Alisan Porter: My oldest friend Augustina and her brother Bayu opened Topanga Living Café in the heart of Topanga Canyon. The kids love to drink tiny bottles of kombucha and run around the indoor/outdoor space. TLC is filled with gorgeous gifts and organic gourmet food. Such a fun environment for parents and kids, plus the food is the bomb!
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter
AP: We are admittedly Potter nerds! Like, for real. I highly suggest buying the interactive wands so the kids can follow the map and cast spells in all the windows … it’s too much fun!
Topanga State Park
AP: Can you tell we love Topanga? This is a perfect hike for kids. Not too steep and lots of places to stop and hang. We always see deer and hawks. We also pick up some walking sticks to decorate.
Underwood Family Farms
AP: Lots of people know about Underwood for their Fall Festival, which is amazing. But I love to pick in season fruits and veggies and let the kids run around. They also have a farmers market if you don’t want to pick your own stuff.
Books and Cookies
AP: Kyla Williams’ music class has been our go to since Mason was 7 months old! She is the best and her class keeps the kids so engaged no matter how many times they do it. We love Miss Kyla so much!
Leo Carrillo State Park
AP: Or any beach camping for that matter. We are definitely beach people and spend a ton of time on the sand. We have a little vintage camper named “Shelby” and we love to park her by the beach, cook breakfast and camp.
