Free Airport Tours in Southern California

I posted recently about the Free Airport tour offered by the John Wayne Airport. Did you know that there are 8 local airports that offer Free behind the scenes tours? Here is a list  of airports offering airport tours, links and details. Most require reservations. Plan accordingly and be prepared for a great time. Most require children to be 5 and above except for San Diego International Airport and Compton Airport which are all ages.

It would be a perfect Spring Break Activity. I have two kiddos that are obsessed with airplanes that I plan on taking soon. Have fun!
