  • Gatlinburg, Tn is nice, mountains and stuff, and there is plenty to do with little ones too. Shopping, scenery, Dollywood, all kinds of nice things to do. Not to far either.

  • Chicago is a great place to vacation, with or without kids. Zoos, museums, public transit (no car needed), festivals, ethnic neighborhoods, parks, etc.  is a great website for finding things to do and see.

  • I think your girsl would love Niagra Falls. There are many things to do there for people of all ages. Clifton Hill has simulator rides, wax museums, tours. There is even a Revolving Restaraunt there. If your hotel is near the falls, you can walk almost everywhere you need to go. Every night the falls are llit up in different colors. If you have not been there i would suggest it. We loved it and plan to go again.
    By the way, I LOVE Chicago. I grew up very close to there.

  • In WI. is the WI. Dells! Its nice too! In Baraboo is the circus world museum. I don't know! We've been married over 29 + years & never had a honeymoon, vacation or Get away! But since I chaperoned every one of my DD's school field trips that's where I got to go... The cave of the mounds too. Of course these are nearby WI. trips! It doesn't take much to amuse young children! Best of Luck! I'm sure you could do a search of any Ientioned & find Cheaper deals or coupons it being an off season time!
