The 10 Best of Everything Families: An Ultimate Guide for Travelersby National Geographic
Synopses & Reviews
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.

Remaining sections contain headings that include: family reunions, shorelines and beaches, sports, the great outdoors, wheels and rails, arts, health, nature and science, history and the arts, and seasonal celebrations. Concluding chapters offer travel, packing, and scrapbooking tips. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
