“Adorable and informative User-friendly, very cute illustrations, and an entire travel book’s worth of content for less than a Starbucks latte! Good deal. There are useful activity ideas for locals and visitors alike, even those without kids.”

“I loved this app and so did the kids!!! We had already planned to visit the White House and the Capitol building. With this app it made our trip so much easier to plan all of the other activities including our trip to monuments and other museums (Building and Spy). I used this app on my iPhone. Our boys (age 6 and 8 ) loved using the app on their iPod to learn and compare fun facts. Great app all around.”
