Visiting a Los Angeles area water park is a great way to beat the heat on a scorching summer day. Now you can also enjoy water play all year long at the new Great Wolf Indoor Water Park, which opened in Garden Grove, down the street from Disneyland in 2016.
If you're visiting Hollywood, you might actually get to cool off faster at one of the LA beaches, since all the LA water parks are a bit of a drive to even hotter areas inland, but if you're visiting other LA theme parks like Knott's Berry Farm, Disneyland or Magic Mountain, they're very close, so easy to combine from the same hotel.
