Sorry i didnt respond sooner. I was away from the computer all weekend.

Forum Visitor: We went to Gatlinburg in 2008. That was the best vacation we ever took and definetley on the table to do again.

Saltwater Cat: We have been to Cozumel Pre kids. It didnt work out that great for us since my wife is scared of the water and once i discovered snorkling, she couldnt keep me out of the water.

East Texas: The kids are 6, 5 and 2.... So they are rather young, which definetley needs to be taken into consideration.

IMO: I will look into hershey. I never thought about it or been up that way.

Norma: We have been just about everywhere in Texas.

Stellar: Hawaii wouldf be wonderfull, i will have to look into that.

Lomax: We are part owners in a beach house on Crystal. so, we are already bored of that.

Nini: I was looking at the river boat cruises. That is something i would really like. but the look on my family's face let me know how they felt.lol

Washington DC the food is high the hotel rates are high but, everything else is free. Which makes a cheap vacation. Stay on the mall and you can walk to everywhere. Public transportation is great. Contact your local senator & you can tickets to tour the White House.

We also enjoyed the Grand Canyon.

We also enjoyed camping. Get a used pop-up for about $5,000 and can use it again and again. We even camped at Disneyland.

Those pop-up campers are great! Several, several moons ago we went to Tennessee and got to use a pop-up from a friend where I worked.
We stayed at state parks along the way. The parks we stopped at had events and excursions available for the kids, led by park rangers.

Agreed; I've been there many times myself. Everything is located on or near the National Mall. You can walk from the Smithsonian to the Whitehouse to the Capitol Building to the supreme court, to the Lincoln Memorial to the Washington Monument to the Vietnam Memorial. Everything else is a short taxi ride away. Check the train maps and you can find a suburban hotel near a train terminal. You won't even need a rental car.

BTW: You have to contact your senator or Congressman's office in advance of your trip to get those tickets. The Whitehouse tours are usually only in the morning. They should be booked many weeks in advance also.

My son & I spent a few days in Sedona, AZ over the weekend. We hiked around the red rocks, took a jeep tour, ate some great food & got to experience the native's traditions & beliefs (Hopi & Navajo) Sedona is beautiful; the red rock mountains, the grand canyon & the new age atmosphere is very refreshing. I hope to return again one day with my wife. I'll post some pictures soon... check it out!

I still say Hershey. They will enjoy the street lights made out of Hershey kisses and the chocolate factory! The historic Philly, or DC would be over the heads and wayyy too much walking at those young ages! Also, there's a big LegoLand somewhere!
