Life changing trips

#5 Library of Congress |||| The star of "National Treasure: Book of Secrets," the Library of Congress likely has something about your child's interests. The world's largest library has 128 million items in 460 languages on 500 miles of shelves, adding new pieces at the rate of 10,000 items per day. #4 The Chesapeake |||| Use the Chesapeake to teach children how a tadpole grows into a frog and where crabs live. "Crabs are magical and mysterious in their lives, not just in their place of rest on a plate," says former chef Barton Seaver, author of "For Cod and Country." #1 Dolphin Exploring in Florida |||| If your child spots a new dolphin on Dolphin Explorer Captain Chris Desmond's dolphin spotting trip outbound from Marco Island, Florida, the child gets to name the dolphin. #3 The Grand Canyon |||| Beneath the rim of the Grand Canyon is where children need to go to appreciate the many layers of historical and natural wonder. "The immensity of the canyon makes people think big," says botanist Mike Masek. "While this is rewarding, the true nature of the canyon comes alive upon closer inspection." #7 London |||| For a first trip abroad for American children, London is a perfect stop: English-speaking (enough) to understand and foreign enough to be another country. Hints of the fictional Harry Potter are everywhere. #10 Galapagos |||| No doubt the Galapagos is an expensive trip with or without children. But visitors to the protected islands can see how animals have evolved over time without any fear of humans. #9 Ontario's Cottage Country |||| Author Keith Bellows grew up in Muskoka, two hours north of Toronto. It's known as Ontario's "cottage country," where generations of visitors own or rent cottages and spend summer living simply amid the wilderness. #6 New York City |||| New York City is here "because of the water," says actor John Keatts, author of "Tales of New York" and Circle Line tour guide. Taking the Circle Line boat tour around New York shows visitors the many ways people get everything onto the islands and one mainland county (the Bronx) that make up New York City. #2 Big Sur |||| The drive crossing through Big Sur requires a strong stomach, but the rewards are worth it. Visitors can stop at Sea Lion Point Trail, the Whalers Cabin Museum and the redwood trees at Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park. The Bixby Creek Bridge shown here is one of the world's highest single-span bridges (at 260 feet).
