10 places to see before you’re 10
You’ve probably heard of the bestselling travel book by Patricia Schultz “1,000 Places To See Before You Die.”
Travel + Leisure is offering a shorter list geared to pint-size travelers: 10 places to see before you’re 10.
The list, in the magazine’s online September issue and in some print editions, has some classics as well as a few surprises, starting with the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, probably the least-known place featured in the article, described as an “outsider-art showcase” of “riveting works” like a 6-foot violinist made of matchsticks and a car smothered in Noxzema jars.
The 10 must-sees for grade-schoolers also includes Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia; Ellis Island in New York; the Grand Canyon in Arizona; Niagara Falls and Chicago’s Sears Tower.
Four California attractions made it onto the list: Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif., described as “charmingly retro” and “more manageable” than Orlando; Muir Woods; Monterey Bay Aquarium, and the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles.
