Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
From coast to coast, contiguous and noncontiguous states alike, the United States features wonderful attractions of interest to travelers of all ages. Unlike Schultz’s 1,000 Places in the U.S. and Canada To See Before You Die, which served as more of a bucket list for adult travelers, Hardin’s work is geared toward families traveling with children. Alphabetically arranged, the book covers all 50 states plus the District of Columbia. Typical entries include contact information, price range (from free to “$$$$”), best time of year to visit, age ranges that the specific attraction would appeal to, and a well-written description of the site’s highlights. The work hits the major attractions, both well- and lesser-known sites that will appeal to children and adults. The work is illustrated throughout with color photographs. Other useful features include a brief “Road Trip Survival Kit,” advice about visiting college campuses, tips for hiking with children, a camping checklist, and other practical information. Appendix A organizes the content by broad themes of interest to children and families (archaeology, beaches, dinosaurs and fossils, space travel, sports, treasure hunting, etc.). Appendix B includes information about motel, hotel, and other accommodations in various price ranges.

Verdict This handy and readable guide is recommended for larger travel collections.—Elizabeth Connor, Daniel Lib., The Citadel, Military Coll. of South Carolina
