Great book! We really like this book. A variety of places, each with a decent explanation. Including an age guide, for what age kids may enjoy it the most. Everything from Legoland, to museums and castles. It is heating up our desire for travel, it provides a great goal for our family travel plans! The index is great for reviewing what is in your next, or favorite travel spots. Fun to see that some of the places we have already visited are on the list, now to get out of North America and see those! The book is arrange by types of attractions not geographically. Although the index makes it easy to find sites in your chosen state/country.
