- Page, Arizona
Lower Antelope Canyon is one of the most spectacular natural sites in Arizona. The tours aren’t especially difficult so most children would be able to walk on their own. The most physical part of the tour are several stairs at the initial decent into the canyon and a few other sets of stairs throughout.
Also in Page, Arizona is Horseshoe Bend, which is a rather short and easy 15 minute hike to the viewing area.
2. Washington D.C.
There are many kid-friendly sites to choose from in the DC area. At the National Mall there is the Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument, the fountains at the National World War II Memorial all withing walking distance of United States Capital and White House.
History might not be the most interesting for your children, but there are plenty of other museums, gardens and parks to visit, as well.
3. Nashville, Tennessee
Take a stroll down Music Row, right downtown in the heart of Nashville. It is fun for everyone with all the live music, colorful signs, Cowboy Boots and the Pedal Taverns riding by.
Another fun stop is Opry Mills, a mall by the Grand Ol Opry House (for the older folks. There were so many family friendly dinner options, it was hard to decide between Rain Forest Cafe, Dave & Busters, Bavarian Bierhaus or the Aquarium Restaurant, which is what we picked. It did not disappoint! We could barely peal the kids off the aquarium to eat!
Afterward, we rented Animal Riders for $1 a minute and cruised around the mall on giant motorized stuffed animals. At Oprhere is also a train taxi, merry-go-round, kids rides, and a bungee trampoline to do flips in the air.
