Fun with the Family

It's a rare weekend that we don't get out of the house and do something fun together with our kids. So when we moved from bustling Southern California to rural central Illinois, this title caught my eye right away. Although our options have obviously decreased due to the differences between big city and country, I was pleasantly surprised to see many enticing activities within a relatively short distance. What a fantastic resource for finding all of the family-appropriate, interesting things to do in your state! These books will save you hours of research and arm you with many ideas for short outings or longer day trips with your family. With such a diverse range of activities there is definitely something to appeal to everyone's interest: parks, outdoor activities, historical attractions, sporting events, amusement parks, museums, along with inclusions completely unique to a location I had no idea there was a highly unusual house filled with handmade features and unique inventions just outside the small town I grew up grocery shopping in every week! Each book starts with an introduction that offers helpful travel tips, general state information websites, and an explanation of price ranges (denoted by dollar signs and ranging from under $5 to over $20). The rest of each book is divided into geographic chapters and then further subdivided by region. Within each region, highlighted attractions are accompanied by thorough descriptions along with helpful information such as the address, phone number, website, hours, recommended ages, icons representing different activities, and approximate cost per person (yes, some are even free!) Each regional section closes with suggestions on family-friendly places to eat, stay overnight, and information for the local Visitors Bureau or Chamber of Commerce. At the end of each geographical chapter is a list of Other Things to See and Do, organized by month, which holds phone numbers or websites on seasonal events such as town festivals, parades, competitions, and other unique local happenings. Each book closes with a restaurant and lodging index of popular chains in that state, with full descriptions and lists of cities in which that chain appears. I highly recommend these guides for discovering the family must-do list in your own state or for any state you are planning to visit on your next vacation so you don't miss out on any of the fun! - Steph
