Way-Way sent me this list of 100 Places to Take Your Kids today. It’s an interesting list, though I don’t think we will make it a point to try to make it through all 100. It seems to me that it is disproportionally weighted toward California.
From the list, we’ve already been to El Yunque in Puerto Rico, which I agree was a great place for the kids. It’s the only tropical rain forest in the National Forest System and the trails and sights were fairly easy for the kids to manage, and how often are the kids going to be able to be in a waterfall?
Dinosaur Valley is on the agenda for our next trip to Glen Rose. We had planned to go this year but ran out of time.
It’s a good mix of fun and historical sites, but a few places that I’d like to add to this list are: the Experience Music Project Museum in Seattle, the Children’s Museum of Phoenix, and the National Zoo in Washington, D.C. I’m sure if I put some more thought to it, I could come up with a host of other places that deserve to be on the list as well.
