This just in, SNOW reported at the Four Seasons Westlake! Well, fake snow, anyways.
It can be hard getting into the holiday spirit in LA. Seriously, the chilly 65 degree weather just isn’t cutting it. So if you want to find some snow(ish) inspiration, head over to the “Let it Snow” event at the Four Seasons Westlake Village.
This event features ice skating, a train ride, characters, and even a visit from Mr. and Ms. Claus. The vibe is casual and fun, and the feel is definitely snowy.
My youngest son particularly enjoyed the S’mores roasting station, although the cookie decorating came in a close second…as well as the hot chocolate. Basically he liked anything with sugar involved.
My older son was more inspired by the hybrid ice skating rink (just off of the indoor pool-so LA), but at 10 years old he was not as into the festivities as my 8 year old was. This event is really ideal for the toddler to 7 year old crowd, so keep that in mind when you are making your plans.
A big perk of the event? Pictures with Santa, saving you the long line at the mall and the frustration when your kid still squints and fusses at the exact moment a picture is taken.
For all of my fellow West Valley folks this is a fun night out with your kids, so make sure to visit and tell them MomAngeles.com sent you!
It’s EVERY SATURDAY & SUNDAY DECEMBER 2 – 17 from 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM. Reservations are required and you can visit the Four Seasons Westlake website for details.
