Kids Love I-95

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to Danna our winner! Visit the Kids Love Travel website to order your copy and for some great travel tips!

Last year I told you about the wonderful Kids Love Travel books. Featuring thirteen different states and now two Interstates, each book is filled with tips, places to visit, restaurants, and more. My Kids Love Maryland book is well worn and I love having it as a resource to plan day trips and weekend adventures.

I was thrilled when I caught up with the author Michelle last month at a curriculum fair and found out they have a new book, Kids Love I-95. Considering we have spent the majority of our Navy career on the East Coast, I have spent many hours traveling I-95 back and forth to Florida where our family lives.

This summer will be a bit different. When I load up the kids for our I-95 adventure next month I will be bringing along my Kids Love I-95 book to make the trip a lot better. Finally some places to stop other than South of the Border!

Here are a few of the book highlights.

  • Maps for each I-95 state that highlight exits with attractions and things to see.
  • Visitor Centers and Rest Areas are marked and it is noted whether it is a northbound or southbound exit.
  • Chick-Fil-A, McDonalds, and Chuck E. Cheese Play Lands are highlighted as well. When it is too hot or rainy to visit a rest area I love finding an indoor play land for my kids to get the wiggles out.
  • Chapters for each state profiling the many attractions that are located just minutes off I-95. I love that they share websites, admission prices, hours, and helpful hints and tips for making the most of your side trip.
  • Activities at a Glance Pages. Each activity is listed with corresponding exit numbers for quick reference. This book is so user friendly that it only takes a few minutes to plan out your entire vacation!

What I love most about these travel guides is that were written by people who have actually experienced and visited these places with kids!

If you aren’t traveling on I-95 this summer they also have Kids Love I-75 as well as 13 state books. If the budget is tight and your vacation will be spent at home this year, these guides can help you plan a great staycation right in your own area.

Michelle has offered to giveaway one of their travel guides to one of my readers.  To enter leave a comment telling me which book you would like to win. For an additional entry you can “Like” Kids Love Travel on Facebook (which is filled with great travel tips and information). Please leave a comment for each entry. Giveaway ends May 21, 2010.

    What a great book! We’re traveling by car from Chicago to Ft. Myers – on the cheap this summer! A quick check to the map it seems that the I-75 guide would be a perfect fit for our family. Thanks!

    Ooh, this is a great one! Since baby #3 is due in August, we’ll be sticking around home for this summer. The Virginia/DC one would be great!

  12. Stephanie says:

    HA HA!! I seriously laughed out loud when you made your South of the Border comment. I grew up in Florence, SC (where I-95 & I-20 meet about an hour south of the border and where everybody stops to potty on the way to Myrtle Beach) and that was THE thing to do when we were growing up. I drove by it shortly after the birth of my son (we now live in Raleigh) and decided I would stick it on my “redneck roadtrip” I am planning on taking one day. I didn’t realize just HOW cheesy Pedro was when I was growing up. HA HA!!!!

  13. Stephanie says:

    I would love either the NC or I-95 book.

    Oh, we’d love to have the I-95 book for our upcoming trip to FL. BUT we live just off of I-95, and it would be fun to know about other fun activities that we can build road trips around!

  20. Twannette says:

    We have the Michigan and I-75 books and love them. With 4 young children, these activities are very good to know about. I would love to have the Florida book, since that is where we actually live. I heard about this from their twitter page.

    Oh…definately would want the I-95 one. We will be heading to visit my parents in NC at the end of June (with my 6 yr old, 4 yr old, and 10 month old) and this would be PERFECT. It’s always so hard to decided which exit is the best to get off at!

  29. carolyn says:

  35. Kristi says:

    Ohhhh… either the Maryland or the I-95 one….

    How fun.. trying to get my Son to be a good car traveler this could help

  36. Amy :) says:

    I’d love the Michigan one, since we’ll be visiting with family there in June and driving north to our old home in the Upper Peninsula. :) I see they don’t have an Arizona one yet… that might be a nice addition. We’re still exploring our new home state…

  40. Siri says:

    Well they don’t have a NJ one, but I think if we go somewhere it’s outside of NJ. So I think I’d pick the I-95 one, that seems like it covers a lot of the bases of places we go to (MD, VA, NC). Thanks!

  41. Jenn says:

    I live in Maryland too & would love that book! Thanks :) Sounds fun!!

  59. Jenn B says:

    I would love the I-95 book or the PA book! I live in PA & my grandparents live in FL. As a kid we drove to FL every summer, so we spent a lot of time on I-95. We’re planning our first road trip to FL with our daughter this January when she’ll be 18 months old. Maybe still a little young to enjoy it, but I’m looking forward to her visiting all of the neat places my sister & I went as children! And, hey, what’s wrong with South of the Border?! I haven’t been there in over 15 years and I am just itching for some giant sombrero!
