Washington DC will amaze you with its huge impressive buildings, monuments and museums, as it is the Capital of the United States. Although these important cities cover a big part of the trip, Cape Cod will capture your attention. With plenty of opportunity to discover the beauty of the Atlantic Ocean, Cape Cod National Seashore is a destination of its own. Mystic Seaport will give you another perspective with a 19th-century seafaring village that comes to life.

Because of the small distances between the destinations and the many ways the parks interact with children, we consider this as a child-friendly trip. Be sure to explore the kids and youth section on the National Park Service website for each destination. Kids will adore it to become a junior ranger.

Independence Visitor Center

Look for accommodation in Philadelphia.


Info for this point: The Independence Visitor Center is a great place to begin your visit to the park. Ask the knowledgeable park rangers about programs, walking tours and special events. You'll find the Independence Hall ticket desk, exhibits, restrooms, a water fountain, ATM, store, and cafe in this building.
 
Day 10:With Independence Hall as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this is the place where The Declaration of Independence (1776) and the Constitution of the United States (1787) were both signed. Step back in time and walk the Constitutional Walking Tour of Philadelphia.
But maybe Philadelphia is on your must see list for a complete other reason? With a real Harry Potter’s Guide (http://www.visitphilly.com/articles/philadelphia/harry-potters-guide-to-philadelphia) including attractions such as Mercer Museum and Fonthill Castle, it can claim some 'wizardness'. The theme park Sesame Place based on the Sesame Street television program is another curiosity that will attract adults and children alike.

Day 11:Driving: From the Independence Visitor Center to Longwood Gardens your estimated driving time is 48 minutes.
