Santa Rosa, CA
A whole museum dedicated to just one cartoon, but one of the most-enduring: Peanuts by Charles Schulz.
Note for parents: While this may seem like a good place to take the kids, the main thing to do is read the comic strips on display. You know your kid and whether they'll enjoy this or not.
This 15-foot-tall cartoon statue stands beside the former home of Jay Ward Productions, the company that created Rocky the Flying Squirrel and his pal Bullwinkle.
Created by cartoonist Hank Ketcham, this playground has lots of fun stuff that your own Dennises Margarets will love.
The studios originally belonged to Charlie Chaplin, but nowadays they're home to Henson Studios. The Kermit statue out front pays tribute to both aspects of the property's history.
Mickey's star is here.
Grauman's Chinese Theatre
Often in competition with Mickey, and not to be outdone, you'll find his hand and footprints at Grauman's. His star is at 6840 Hollyood Blvd.
Bugs has a big statue just outside the entrance to Warner Bros Studios. Daffy Duck's there, too.
Even though it's on a building inside the studio grounds, you can easily see it from the street.
