Overview

Sure, go on the internet and try to plan a short family trip…It takes so much TIME! And, once you’re there, how can you know for sure which places are “kid-friendly” and a good VALUE? Well, the authors of a best-selling travel guide series know. After 1000 hours researching and writing KIDS LOVE PENNSYLVANIA, 2nd Edition, Pittsburgh area natives George & Michele Zavatsky’s experiences can save you lots of time and money. “As a result of economic and global insecurity trends, many families will still take vacations, but shorter and closer to home” says author George Zavatsky. His wife and co-author adds “The problem is choosing little clusters of sites that will entertain and engage your children as much as expensive, lavish vacations you may have taken in the past.” They both conclude: “Entertaining children really shouldn’t be so hard…that’s why we researched and updated this book.” After the tremendous success of their best-selling travel books, the couple spent a year taking children on excursions to all of the most unique places in Michigan.The updated KIDS LOVE PENNSYLVANIA guidebook has many enhancements making it very user-friendly. There are more detailed regional maps and more listings with domain websites. All the listings have been kid-tested and the new descriptions include great hints on what kids (ages 2-15) like best! Going to an area of Pennsylvania you’re not familiar with? Just go to the “Favorites” listing by region (8 geographical zones) and you can’t go wrong. Now too, the publisher’s website posts quarterly updates of major changes to the book. This keeps the book current for several years after publication. The publishers goal is to keep the books inexpensive and easy to use over and over again. Other travel trends indicate many people will seek opportunities to learn while taking some time off. Others will look for unusual things to do and places to go where they can enjoy something different. Pennsylvania is full of these kind of sites and events! Kids can “discover” oil, meet Ben Franklin, or watch favorite toys being made. The book will tell you how “ducky” boats, Tall ships and railroads (straight, inclined and curved!) changed history and even how to find Christopher Columbus’ personal belongings. You ’ll know where to go to stand side-by-side a coal-miner or pretzel-twister (and even get to try your hand at it), watch a glass bowl form before you eyes or learn the secrets of perfect pottery, guitars, wooden toys and motorcycles. Another weekend you’ll have all the travel details you need to go behind the scenes of a beehive farm or stamp your own coin, touch the “Bell” and be “Rocky”. Of course, there’s plenty of details on nationally known sites like Amish homes, schools (and food!); Lincoln/Gettysburg museums (“hang out” with Lincoln on the train heading into town); and the wonders of nature in PA - the “Grand Canyon”, the “Niagara”, Little Horses and the Famous Phil. If you’re hungry, KIDS LOVE PENNSYLVANIA knows where to be a candy taste-tester, make potato chips, pierogies and pizza, or tell you how to eat your way through apple, berry, maple and pumpkin festivals. Nearby many historical sites are unusual theme restaurants including a real log cabin and a railroad depot. When you’re full, take a relaxing trolley, train, boat or bike ride along well-planned paths past pieces of history.The book provides all the details a family needs to know (i.e. regional maps, directions, phone numbers, websites, prices) to save lots of time. It’ s a wonderful resource to make short vacation plans or get to know your hometown better. Best of all, if you have a limited budget, don’t worry – the book has found lots of places to visit for little or no charge!

Meet the Author

“Where to go?, What to do?, and How much will it cost?”, are all questions that they have heard throughout the years from friends and family. These questions became the inspiration that motivated them to research, write and publish the “Kids Love” travel series. This adventure of writing and publishing family travel books has taken them on a journey of experiences that they never could have imagined. They have appeared as guests on hundreds of radio and television shows, had featured articles in statewide newspapers and magazines, spoken to thousands of people at schools and conventions, and write monthly columns in many publications talking about “family friendly” places to travel.

    A MUST HAVE PARENT'S TRAVEL RESOURCE!

    Parenting can be so frustrating ¿ especially when your kids seem bored and are begging for creative ideas on something fun to do. Most of the time you end up at the local playground or amusement center for lack of better ideas. Or, maybe you¿re a relative or friend who has young visitors coming to town and you don¿t know where to begin planning fun adventures that are guaranteed to please kids. ¿Entertaining children shouldn¿t be so hard --- we wanted to make having fun family time easy. So, we researched and wrote this book¿ say parents/authors George and Michele Zavatsky. After the tremendous success of their top selling travel books, KIDS LOVE OHIO and KIDS LOVE INDIANA, the couple spent the last year taking children on excursions to all of the most unique places in Pennsylvania. After 1000 hours of research/publishing, the result is their book, KIDS LOVE PENNSYLVANIA. KIDS LOVE PENNSYLVANIA has been kid-tested and the descriptions include great hints on what kids like best. This informative guide contains 268 pages packed full of almost 900 places and events specifically designed for children between the ages of 2 ¿ 15. Kids can ¿discover¿ oil, meet Ben Franklin, or watch favorite toys being made. The book will tell you how canal boats, ships and railroads (straight, inclined and curved!) changed history and even how to find Christopher Columbus¿ personal belongings. You¿ll know where to go to stand side-by-side a coal-miner or pretzel-twister (and even get to try your hand at it), watch a glass bowl form before you eyes or learn the secrets of perfect pottery, baskets, guitars and motorcycles. Another weekend you¿ll have all the travel details you need to go behind the scenes of a beehive farm or stamp your own coin, touch the ¿Bell¿ and be ¿Rocky¿. Of course, there¿s plenty of details on nationally known sites like Amish homes, schools (and food!); Lincoln/Gettysburg museums (¿hang out¿ with Lincoln on the train heading into town); and the wonders of nature in PA - the ¿Grand Canyon¿, the ¿Niagara¿, Little Horses and the Famous Phil. If you¿re hungry, KIDS LOVE PENNSYLVANIA knows where to be a candy taste-tester, make potato chips, pierogies and pizza, or tell you how to eat your way through apple, berry, maple and pumpkin festivals. Unusual theme restaurants include a real log cabin, a railroad depot, or a service station. The book is formatted in 9 geographical zones providing addresses, telephone numbers, websites, directions, admissions and descriptions to save lots of time. It¿s a wonderful resource to make short vacation plans or to get to know your hometown area better. You will probably find there are at least 50 things to do within an hour of your home! Best of all, if you have a limited budget, don¿t worry ¿ the book has found lots of places to visit for little or no charge!
