Family Travel to Washington, DC

Two recent article from Frommer’s give some good ideas for a DC visit.

One is a general overall view of Washington DC as a family travel destination, plus a list of favorite experiences at the bottom of the article, and the other is more of a “Best of Washington DC” for kids. 

A big plus for the entire DC metro area is that so many of the kid-friendly museums and places to visit are free.  Also, since it is a government and business hub there are lots of hotel options, including nice “business hotels” that try to fill their rooms on weekends by charging tempting low prices.  The Metro system makes it a snap to get around town as well.
