When I was a kid my parents never took us on a vacation that required a plane ride, my sister and I knew that when my parents said they were planning a vacation it meant it was actually a road trip. My father would say it is time for the “Carretera” and then were off. I was born in Massachusetts and moved down to Florida late in my teens so I can happily say that the road trips they planned were all amazing from exploring some history to visiting a theme park my parents had it covered.
As a parent, I wanted my children to have the best of both world’s being able to appreciate a memorable trip on a plane and a good old fashion road trip. Living in New York there are so many great cities around us that are a must do on our family travel list before the kids leave the nest. The top place for our family was Washington D.C. what kid doesn’t want to see the White House or see how money is actually made, there is so much to see and do in Washington D.C. that you will need more than one trip to cover it all.
