LA with Kids Vasquez Rocks

The rocks were formed millions of years ago and they’re unique for their jagged edges. They’re also pretty easy to walk up and climb with wide, flat spaces, making them great for kids! Of course, always make sure to provide parental guidance! Vazquez Rocks are also a popular filming location for countless movies and TV shows, including one of our favorites, Friends!! They even used the location as inspiration for the backdrop for Pixar’s Cars and Radiator Springs! The rocks are located in a tiny western town, called Agua Dulce, which is a great little escape from the city. There are a few restaurants, a grocery store and a hardware store! There’s also a charming winery, Agua Dulce Winery, with animals and horseshoes out back. We grabbed a glass of wine, cheese and crackers and enjoyed a few hours overlooking the desert while Romeo ran around and played. If you’re in LA with kids, looking for a change of scenery or a cool place to take photos, definitely check out Vasquez Rocks!

    Love Vasquez Rocks! This reminds me of taking my boys there when they were Romeo’s age. Our local SCV schools have a project where V. Rocks is one of the places to visit in our community. Boys really enjoyed climbing, exploring, and running around. Thanks for the memories!

      Awe! This is great Barbara! I’m already excited to take him back when it’s not as hot so we can really climb! Such a wonderful spot to let kids run and release their energy, haha! We really enjoyed it… great place to take a class too. So much to learn and explore. Happy these pics conjured up good memories for you 🙂
      Thanks for the sweet comment!!
