The pulsating city center revolves around the Capitol and then spreads out into a variety of distinctive neighborhoods including Adams-Morgan (bohemian and international), Downtown (monuments and business), Dupont Circle (upscale business and residential), Shaw (historically elite residential areas and ghettos) and Georgetown (pristine historic houses, a university and trendy bars).

Carmel, California
Carmel CASituated on the craggy shore of the Pacific Ocean and rated as one of the top ten destination spots in the United States by Conde Nast Traveler, Carmel, California is a one-of-a-kind enchanted village. Standing on the rocky cliffs overlooking the crashing waves, one might imagine themselves on the moors in "Wuthering Heights" or the white cliffs of Dover. But it is not just the magnificent vistas and cool ocean breezes that set this town apart from the rest.

Tips for Families on the Go
Family at Airport  
  • Don't pack valuables in baggage you plan to check. Your bags will pass through a lot of unsupervised hands on its cross-country flight, so keep your jewelry, money and travellers checks close at hand in a carry-on bag.
  • When you pick up your car rental, ask which parts of town to stay away from. Staying away from high-crime parts of town could be the most important safeguard you can take.
  • Show your children how to call the front desk. While they may know how to dial 911 in case of emergency at home, unless you tell them, they won't know to dial 9 for an outside line, or to dial 0 for the hotel receptionist.
