Amusement Parks for Kids -- Lego Land

Where it’s located: Carlsbad, California

Cost of admission: Toddlers ages 1 to 2, free; children ages 3 to 12, $65, children ages 13 and up, $75.

Why your younger kids will love it: You know how the kids love riding their ride-ons in the driveway, so you can imagine how happy they'll be when they get to drive a car. In FunTown, one of Legoland’s nine mini-parks, kids, ages 3-5, can squeeze behind the wheel of an electric Lego car and earn a coveted Legoland driver’s license at the Volvo driving school. 

Why your older kids will love it:
Do your kids live for building cities out of Legos or assembling intricate racecar tracks? If there’s an engineer-in-training in your brood, Legoland has you covered. Your mini mastermind will love the Imagination Zone’s Build and Test area, where kids can construct their own miniature Lego cars and race them against competitors. See if your design measures up!

Cool fact:
The park’s Miniland USA is the ultimate display of Lego art. It contains replicas of seven areas of the United States -- like Las Vegas! -- that were constructed on a 1:20 scale using a whopping 20 million Lego bricks. Check it out:
