Review: Fodor's Washington, DC with Kids, 3rd Edition (Special-Interest Titles)

User Review  - Goodreads

We planned a trip to DC in 07 and this book was helpful to point out things we may have otherwise missed. The annex to the Air and Space museum was incredible and its free, even parking if you know what time to go. Little tips like that made the trip more enjoyable. Read full review
