Best Double Strollers

Los Angeles has some of the best cultural attractions in the United States: the Getty Museum, the Hollywood Bowl, the La Brea Tar Pits, Chinatown, and many more. There are any number of guide books to help you find each and every one. But what if you’re the parent of one or more stroller-bound preschoolers? How are you supposed to find out answers to the really important questions:

Will my stroller fit through the door? Will the place be so boring my kids will scream and want to leave? Will I have to leave early because of some unforeseen scary noise?

Parents of young children now have a guidebook especially for them. In Los Angeles By Stroller, Shelley-Anne Wooderson takes you to more than one hundred venues and gives you the nitty gritty on each one.

“As I started to explore (Los Angeles) with my kids, I was amazed at how places I once loved as a teenager, or even as an adult, offered a completely different experience to me as a mother.” - The Author

Sure, the Getty Museum is one of the best museums in the world, but it’s definitely not kid-friendly. And the Hollywood Bowl even has shows for kids, but if you don’t book early, you’ll never get tickets. And just try riding the shuttle bus with a cranky and restless toddler.

This lighthearted guide filled with humorous asides about the author’s own experiences will be enjoyable to any parent of small children. On visiting Avila Adobe, the oldest structure in Los Angeles, the author writes: “My four-year-old made me go back through the house a second time, but even after two visits I’m not sure she believed me when I told her that kids back then only had one doll.”

The author has done all of the work for the reader. In addition to hours and admission prices, she even rates the locations on their child-friendliness and gives helpful tips for each one to make trips with toddlers and preschoolers easier.
