"Kids Love Pennsylvania" is better
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 20 years ago
I bought both this book and "Kids Love Pennsylvania : A Parent's Guide to Exploring Fun Places in Pennsylvania With Children", and I liked the second one more. I think "Fun with Family" book pays too much attention to historical places and facts. My girls (3 and 6) are not much interested in that stuff; we usually prefer outdoor attractions, nature wonders and factory tours to museums, historical places and houses. "Kids Love PA" book also has an online update and provides more URLs for places of interest.
Our Family has a bunch of fun and learned a few things too!

This book gave us all the information we needed for 2 grandparents, 2 children, and 1 mom to enjoy Pennsylvania. It's layed out in easily identified regions of the state. Within each region, there are all kinds of attractions, both the familiar and the not-so-well known. In addition, family-friendly eating places are listed near each attraction. Our boys enjoyed reading the comments from the author's children in highlighted boxes."Look, mom, he won a stuffed animal at the amusement park too!" And, there's enough relevant history described for each battleground and hisorical site to help you feel informed, not overwhelmed. The instructions, prices, etc.,were accurate and helpful,although the authors wisely advise you to call ahead to verify any changes. Finally, the most helpful features were the age guidelines and estimated activity level for each site. This book was a pleasure to read and to use. On our next trip to Pennsylvania, it will be the first thing that we pack.
