Looking for a little armchair travel or for a way to get kids engaged and excited about a new destination? Check out my favorite history and geography sites created for kids.
National Geographic Kids: Beautiful website and easy to navigate. Countries around the world are listed with facts, maps, and photos.
Time for Kids: Useful information includes a History Timeline and Sightseeing Guide for a wide variety of destinations.
Kidipede: History for Kids covers historical details about cities and sights. When we were planning our trip to London last year, we used it to look up information on the Tower of London.
The World Factbook: Very straightforward facts on every country.
Castles of the World: Find and read about castles around the world.
Lucy Travels: The ads on this website are distracting, but the activity sheets are fun and and they have some useful travel journal writing tips and advice.

We’re working with our suppliers on being flexible with their booking conditions, and enabling families to postpone travel to a later date without a penalty, when possible. Likewise, given the unpredictability around destinations that may be impacted in the future, we’re helping clients planning new trips and understand ways that they can protect themselves until the situation improves. We are ready to help our clients work through questions and concerns.
