500+ All-American Family Adventures (Paperback)
A state-by-state guide to the places that offer a unique insight into American culture
500+ All-American Family Adventures is a thoughtful handbook that will help you plan family vacations and day trips that are both entertaining and educational. Travel is one of the best ways to augment a child’s formal education, and this volume offers insightful suggestions for making the most of any trip—all the while making it so much fun that your kids won’t even know they’re learning. This voluminous collection, carefully researched, includes places your family will never forget—the most important historical sites in the country are here, as well as gems travelers might otherwise miss. The common thread is that each gives real insight into the American experience and also packs a powerful, engaging experience on its own. Also provided: budgeting tips, time-saving strategies, historical background, and an appendix of the best family-friendly lodging options.
