If you are a parent living in the greater DC-Baltimore Area and you have young children, you are likely both excited and overwhelmed by the stunning array of choices for fun thing to do with kids in the area. The problem is that many times something that is billed as ‘family friendly’ is really only family friendly if your kids are above a certain age (in most cases 4 or 5 years old). When our daughter was born I searched and searched for honest reviews of places that took the needs of young children into consideration.
I didn’t find very much.
So, I have started to compile that resource myself. It is truly a work in progress, mostly because a) it takes time to actually visit the places and b) it takes even more time to write an in-depth review. However, my goal is to eventually amass a comprehensive guide for any parent struggling between the competing needs to stave off cabin fever and not fall victim to the never-ending temper tantrum fest of overstimulated toddlers.
This page is organized by location. If you would prefer a list organized by activity, please click here.
One last note: if the text is hyper-linked, that is because I have written an in-depth review of the location or event. If it is listed, we have visited, but I haven’t been able to review it yet. Check back as that list will change weekly! If you can’t wait to get the insider scoop on a particular attraction you can either write me.. I would love to tell you about our experience, you can ask me a question on my Facebook page, or you can scroll though my Instagram account to see the pictures and basic information I may have already shared about the place or event in question.
Thanks and I hope you have great family adventures!
