The Unofficial Guide to the Mid-Atlantic with Kids Published by Kidznsnow’s Eastern Guru - Mitch Kaplan

Unofficial Guide to the Mid-Atlantic with KidsLooking for the perfect family vacation spot at the Jersey, Maryland or Virginia shore? Want to find an excellent place to ski, mountain bike or hike in the Mid-Atlantic? Trying to figure out how to begin dealing with a family visit to Washington, DC, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia or Buffalo?

Boy! Have we got an answer for you.

Mitch Kaplan, veteran family travel writer and Kidznsnow Eastern Editor, announces the publication of his latest book, The Unofficial Guide to the Mid-Atlantic with Kids, published by Hungry Minds, Inc.

Covering New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and Washington, DC, the book offers comprehensive insight into the region’s attractions, accommodations, restaurants and outdoor activities. In addition to offering no-nonsense advice on family trip planning, money- and time-saving tips and coverage of how to best manage the region’s major cities, attractions are rated for suitability for each age group - from pre-schoolers to grandparents. Lodging and dining suggestions are made with family convenience, comfort and budgets in mind. And, in addition to detailing how to access each area, detail maps help with navigation.

“The focus of the book is to supply parents with worthwhile, practical and constructive information that will help them plan a rewarding and fun family vacation, whether it’s a weekend jaunt or a month-long odyssey” says Kaplan. “After years of traveling with my own kids, I’ve gained a good sense of what parents need to know in order to have fun. And, in the end, that’s what it’s all about, isn’t it? Fun?”

Each state in the book is divided into regions. Within each region, the book not only specifies the best attractions, lodging and eateries, but denotes hiking, biking, skiing, camping and other outdoor activity opportunities. The region’s character is described, as well as a listing of annual events and secondary attractions that may merit visiting. Special sections denote sites particular to a given region, such as railroading and mining attractions in Pennsylvania and Civil War sites in Virginia.

In addition to his work for Kidznsnow, Kaplan has covered family travel for such major magazines as Family Circle, Skiing, Snow Country, Westways and Endless Vacation. He has authored several books, including 52 New Jersey Weekends and 535 Wonderful Things to Do This Weekend - A Guide to Festivals and Annual Events in the Mid-Atlantic, and penned a family adventure travel column for North Jersey Newspapers.

The Unofficial Guide to the Mid-Atlantic with Kids is part of the Unofficial Guide series that has more than 4 million copies in print. It’s available at all major bookstores and, on-line, through
