The challenge of planning a kid-friendly vacation to Washington, D.C., is not in finding things to do — it’s in figuring out how to do it all. One of the best ways to see a lot in a short amount of time is to hop on a trolley tour of the city. Not only is it efficient, but it’ll save everyone’s energy for strolling the Mall later in the day and getting an up-close look at the many famous monuments. Don’t forget to carve out time for the city’s tremendous museums, focusing on everything from spies to military history to space exploration. A kid-friendly place to stay with amenities like an indoor pool takes the edge off the more serious educational aspects of a trip here. Our Advisors can help you book properties that are well located for sightseeing.
