North America is the home continent for the 2 Idiots. Our home is in the wonderful city of Charlotte, North Carolina. We have traveled extensively in the United States and some in Canada and there is so much to see in both these countries.

We will be posting articles on travel in both the US and Canada soon!

Top 5 Washington, D.C. Museums for Kids (4 of them are FREE!)

As the capital city of the United States, it’s no surprise that Washington, D.C. has much to see and do. In fact, you might not know where to start. While you want to be sure you and your kids see major landmarks like the White House and the Lincoln Memorial, you should also set time aside to visit one of the city’s many impressive museums. A museum? With kids? Am I crazy? While it might seem as though your kids will be bored during these visits, nothing could be further from the truth. Not only are the best museums in Washington, D.C. for kids filled with impressive displays and exhibits, but many also have an interactive aspect, so your children can play an active, fun role in their own education. As a bonus, most of these museums don’t charge admission. Instead, they simply encourage a donation. This means you can pay whatever you’re comfortable with, which is a huge bonus for budget-minded travelers.
