    There are a several places you can take your tot to. The Santa Monica Pier offers sandy beaches and lively street performances that will surely entertain any baby. Parking is only $8 during the week and $10 on the weekends. Admission to the Pier is free! There is also Froggy's Arts and Crafts, located in Toluca Lake, where children ages 2 and up can sign up for "Story Art & Craft" classes. A single class costs $10 and lets toddlers paint, draw, and more during story time. Call (818) 907-7326 for more information. Then There's the Paintbox Kids store in Pasadena. You and your baby can enjoy creating something together using the materials the store offers. What's best about this place is that they offer ideas for projects AND they do all the clean up at the end! Call (626) 808-0330 for more information.

    Assuming you're heading out from Las Vegas, I'd probably you drive over to Los Angeles and then make your way north along California Highway One. Not sure how long you have, but Santa Barbara is a really lovely place at which to stop. Maybe also spend a night or two up in the Big Sur area, before scheduling a stop in either Monterey or Carmel (Big Sur Nepenthe restaurant is a prime spot for a lunch stop with a view!). Carmel is very quaint and has some nice inns and guesthouses. You could also go a bit more upscale at somewhere like the Inn at Pebble Beach or Bernardus Lodge (http://away.com/resorts/bernardus-lodge-bl-hotelid53531.html) in this area. After Monterey, it's a fairly straight shot up to San Francisco, where you could obviously spend some more time sightseeing before flying out. Best advice, though, is not to overdo the driving and enjoy the scenery along this wonderful stretch of coastline (it can also get a little slow during peak travel seasonss).

    It really depends on what kind of shopping you are looking for. If you want department and big chain stores, check out The Grove or Century City Mall. These are both huge outdoor shopping centers that have several restaurants and a movie theater. The Grove also has a trolley that could be fun for little kids. For more unique items, check out Melrose. This area has a wide range of high and lower end boutiques. Also check out Montana and Main streets in Santa Monica for smaller clothing boutiques. Robertson has many of the higher end designers and flagship stores. For cheap and trendy items, walk through Santee Alley downtown, where hundreds of vendors sell knock-off purses, clothes, and accessories. This might not be the best place for a 2 yr old though, as it can get pretty crowded. If you do go, make sure you bring cash.
