Washington Single-Parent Family Travel

Explore Single-Parent Family Travel in Washington

With so many opportunities to entertain and inform children, Washington, D.C., is a great place to take the little ones when there aren’t two parents available to divide and conquer. The Smithsonian Institute operates 15 free museums, many of which are a huge hit with kids including the National Zoo, the National Museum of Natural History and the National Air and Space Museum. The popular Newseum has an “Interactive Newsroom,” where kids can act as a reporter or photographer. Older teens will love seeing the capital on a Segway Tour, while younger teens will appreciate going incognito at the International Spy Museum. There’s something fun for all ages in Washington, D.C.

The learning doesn’t have to stop when a day of seeing the sites is over. Make dinnertime a history lesson at a family-favorite with a historic twist. Check out the Old Ebbitt Grill, a favorite of presidents and political movers and shakers since it opened in 1856.
