Overview

Family trips are the most popular form of leisure travel, and according to recent research, the current trend of multigenerational and family-friendly getaways will continue to grow. To answer the need for an authoritative, creative, and practical travel planner, National Geographic and Susan Magsamen, a leading parenting expert, have joined together to create this must-have guide. Chock full of ten-best lists, sidebars, maps, and more, this is the perfect resource for planning a week-long vacation with grandparents, a dream trip across the country, or a short getaway close to home.

Each chapter is full of the practical travel information, resources, and itineraries needed for vacation planning. Sidebars tell how to prepare for the trip, list what to take, and share advice and tips from parents and experts. Organized regionally and thematically, from the local (best neighborhood parks, movie theaters, and ice-cream shops) to the national (best adventure vacations, living history experiences, and city explorations) to the international (itineraries for Cape Town, London, Vancouver, and Hong Kong), this entertaining and informative guide will inspire families to experience the perfect trip together.

    I really wanted a copy of this book, it is a great book that we borrowed from a friend and we wanted our own copy, but it never showed up after we ordered back in July...

    Interesting and easy to use

    Picked up this book on a whim and found it to be well laid-out with enough information to find what you need on the interent or with a phone call. I plan on taking my kids to all fifty states and this is another great resource. I would disagree with some of their itineraries for the cities...a few local experts have an agenda. I live near Philly and thought that taking your kids for the weekend should at least involve Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell or some of the great museums (which are mentioned in other chapters) instead of random community festivals. While you don't want to live like a tourist, to travel to a city and visit a small geology museum that needs reservations instead of The Franklin Institute is a little ridiculous. It's wonderful to have a professional make suggestions but one made 9 out of his 10 must-sees in CA. So consider it a starting point or a supplement to making your vacation.
    The international travel section is laughably small. It would have been better to havr cut that chapter and just made it 10 Best in US.
    Also, there's a whole chapter on making memories. If a parent has gone to the length of buying this book and using it, I think they know how to make a scrapbook. I thought it a useless addition.
