DK Eyewitness Family Guide Washington, DC (Travel Guide) (Paperback)
The best places to visit in DC are all approached from a family-friendly angle. The guide is organized around "hubs"--major sights around which to plan your day--and gives child-friendly eating options, age-range suitability info, places for letting off steam, detailed maps, activities for rainy days, and plenty of ideas things to do with kids beyond the major Washington, DC, attractions. Plus there are Kids' Corners in every chapter with cartoons, quizzes and games to keep young travelers happy all day long.
"What…makes this series unusual is the attention to detail. Yes, all the big sights are here, but even the famous places are given a slight twist — always with children and their parents in mind." – Chicago Tribune
"For families traveling with young people, it's hard to do better than this handsomely illustrated guide, which is arranged geographically and notable for its focus on family friendly activities." – Library Journal
