Spring Break Fun in Washington, DC

Spring Break is nearly here. No school. Great weather. Lots of free time. And plenty of fun things to do in DC with your kids. Here are just a few:

MADAME TUSSAUDS WAX MUSEUM: We had a fantastic time here last year. All three of my kids - then 7, 11, & 16 - found something to thoroughly enjoy. The museum is located at 1025 F Street, NW. The entrance is on 10th Street. You can get the details on my website.

MUSEUM OF AMERICAN HISTORY: Newly reopened and kid-friendly throughout, this museum is definitely worth a visit. The transportation exhibit has plenty to see and do. There 's an Invention at Play station with more than enough activities to keep your kids busy. Details? Check it out at Washington Parent.

WASHINGTON NATIONAL CATHEDRAL: Into gargoyles? Grotesques? Stained Glass? Greenhouses & Gardening? This is the perfect place for you. Check out the details here.

THE PHILLIPS COLLECTION: If being up-close-and-personal with great works of art is more your family style, why not head for DuPont Circle and a visit to the Phillips Collection. You'll see Renoir's Luncheon of the Boating Party along with work ranging from Rothko to Degas. Details? Click here.

UNDERGROUND RAILROAD EXPERIENCE TRAIL: Outdoor adventures more your style? Check this out.
