- Redwood National Park, CA
- Monticello, VA

- Niagara Falls, NY
- The National Mall, D.C.
- Colonial Williamsburg, VA
- Walt Disney World, FL

I caught the travel bug when I was 20, so just reading this list makes me want to pack a suitcase or two! But I couldn't believe they forgot to include a few of my favorite family-friendly travel spots. Here are my suggestions to add to the list:
- Yosemite National Park, CA
- Route 66, CA/AZ/NM/TX/OK/KS/MO/IL
- Hoover Dam, AZ/NV
- Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, HI
- Space Needle, WA
- Plymouth Rock, MA

What do you think? Any other places that need to be on the list of must-see locales for family travel?
Do you have travel-related questions that you want me to answer in my Tips for Traveling with Toddlers and Babies series?
