Best Things to Do with Teenagers in DC
Traveling to Washington DC with an all-to-grown-up teen can be challenging. Not quiet adults, but not children either, teenagers demand their own type of entertainment which often times does not involve site seeing with mom and dad. Luckly, the nation's capitol offers safe yet fun places to visit with museums, art galleries, sporting events and attractions that are perfect for your teenage daughter or son.
Best Museums for Teens... Rembrandt, Picasso, Monet, Van Gogh, not good enough! Offer up million year-old dinosaurs larger that an family home or 6 foot stalagmites. How about a museum revealing the secrets of International spies?--now those are museums teens will like!
