Local auto shows represent the safest place for kids to practice pretend engine noises without attracting feral lawnmowers. Cruise through life-size Hot Wheels with today's Groupon: for $6, you get admission to the LA Auto Show at the Los Angeles Convention Center (up to a $12 value; kids 12 and under are free when accompanied by an adult).
Since 1907, innovative vehicle designs and cutting-edge cars have been converging on the LA Auto Show to keep auto enthusiasts fully fueled with automotive zeal. This year, the show will be stocked with nearly 1,000 new cars, including debuts from around the world, futuristic concept carriages, and alternatively fueled editions. Open from November 19–28 (including Thanksgiving weekend), the auto show will feature dozens of exhibitors and more than 50 premieres, such as the Range Rover Evoque and the Saab 9–4X.
In Kentia Hall, auto aficionados can explore limited-production vehicles, learn about the latest electronics, and picture themselves getting picked up by driverless celebrity robo-cars. Weekends offer youthful visitors the chance to explore the Nissan Quest Kids' Fun Zone, where they can play video games and commandeer toy cars while mom and dad take turns supervising and test driving select Kias, Buicks, Chevys, GMCs, and Toyotas from Fridays to Sundays, and Fords and Land Rovers every day.
Vouchers must be redeemed online for e-tickets.
