For those fascinated by all things furry, fuzzy and even scaly, Los Angeles won't disappoint. From Santa Monica to Santa Ana, zoos and aquariums abound. Always fun yet educational, these family-friendly destinations are definite crowd-pleasers. Plus, for less than a trip to Sea World, some offer live whale watching tours!
