With National Mini Golf Day coming up on September 21, 2011 this is the perfect time to take the kids for some family fun at one of Los Angeles’ best miniature golf courses. Each location is great for a family outing or even a birthday party. (Here are the best mini golf spots in the Inland Empire, and the best spots in Orange County.)
Golf N Stuff Norwalk

A little movie trivia, this Golf N Stuff was in the original Karate Kid. This family-fun park is open 365 days a year on most days from 10am to Midnight, but rides open later in the day so be sure to check their website for hours.
