Hi I am bringing my family to Washington dc for holidays this year.. Anyone got any tips... My children are 10 and 5
Your kids are the perfect age for a trip to DC. Nearly all the museums and attractions are free and all of them offer something for kids.
Don't skip the ground floor sections of the American History or Natural history museums that have a lot of interactive exhibits.
The zoo and the space and air museum are a lot of fun!
Have the 10 year old help pick out specific things he/she wants to see at the different Smithsonian Museums. Also don't try to see the entire museum. Targeting specific exhibits really helps with the whining. I use to get my nieces and nephew to do this when they came to visit.
