Fabulous book. Used it to plan a roadtrip from New York to Florida with my wife and two kids and it had great suggestions for things to see along the way. I highly recommend it to any and all parents.

Planning a family vacation is exciting, but finding a destination that will appeal to multiple ages and interests -- i.e. every family member -- can be a challenge. While the internet is a wonderful tool for vacation planning, it falls short in organizing information in one place that helps families decide where to go in the first place.
