Do DC with Kids

Day Trips and Destinations

Thomas the Tank Engine comes to Port Discovery Children’s Museum in Baltimore.

Although there’s tons of baby/toddler/kid friendly rooms in many of the museums in Washington, D.C. There is not yet an entire museum dedicated to children. Port Discovery Children’s Museum in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor is an hour away from Washington D.C. by car and with three entire floors of toys, exhibits and daily programming it’s totally worth the visit.

Udvar-Hazy Center based on the number of poke-stops here: a dozen or so, is that good, I dunno but, apparently good enough […]
