Rediscover Local Museums with Family Trip Guides

By DullesMoms, Sept 2019

Living in Northern Virginia, we sometimes forget how lucky we are to be neighbors with the District! We forget that people from all over the world plan a vacation to see the buildings, monuments, and museums that we drive by so often.

Maybe it’s time to rediscover some of these things, and Jennifer wants to help make that happen!

Jennifer is the editor and mom behind Family Trip Guides, a resource dedicated to museum-lovin’ families with kids of all ages. She’s a pro at navigating places with children, especially Smithsonian museums in Washington, DC.
