{Paramount Ranch} Southern California Kids & Family Photography

Paramount Ranch, located in the Santa Monica Mountains is a wonderful, scenic place to explore, hike and take pictures!! There's a Western Town full of buildings that were used as backdrops for many movies and tv shows. You can read more about its history here and here.  The boys and I visited Paramount Ranch over the weekend just to hike and explore (and take pictures of course!) and we got really lucky because a park ranger came by and asked us if we wanted to take a peek inside the buildings!!  We were so excited to get a first hand look at a historical, real-life movie set and get a tour of places that most people will never get to see! The jail and saloon were really cool but I liked the sound stage the best. It used to be a real live barn and now the walls, ceiling and floors are completely padded, cutting down on the noise level exponentially... I think I need a room like this in my home... 












Do not train boys to learn by force and harshness, but lead them by what amuses them, so that they may better discover the bent of their minds.
