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...Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

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.
