Northwest Kid Trips: Portland, Seattle, Victoria, Vancouver

With humor, a sense of adventure, and sensitivity to family-budget issues, author Lora Shinn guides travelers through four vibrant Northwest cities, presenting itineraries and options that are uniquely geared for families with children in tow. Northwest Kid Trips uses engaging language and an accessible, easy-to-thumb format, Shinn lays out the best of each city’s options for sleeping, eating and sightseeing – then piles on fun facts about locations, including nicknames, movies and books, etc. Unlike other guide books, Northwest Kid Trips offers optional side “escapes” or day trips, so families can maximize their fun and travel budgets with a side trip to the San Juan Islands or the Oregon Coast, for example.  This book focuses on the quirky, intimate and kid-approved experiences that make for a memorable – and uniquely Northwest – vacation.
