AAA travel guides now spotlight kid-friendly activities for many top destinations 

ORLANDO, FL--April 5, 2013: Planning a trip the whole family will enjoy is easier when you let AAA's travel professionals help point the way with expert recommendations. To select their top picks for key family travel destinations, AAA editors became kids again. With an eye toward finding options for tots to teens, they visited and played at countless attractions touted as kid friendly -- many designated as AAA GEMs, offering a Great Experience for Members -- along with notable restaurants and events. This family-friendly content is available in AAA's popular digital and printed travel guides for select destinations.

"The key to a successful family vacation is planning activities that are fun and exciting for every member of your group, recognizing that what's exciting to a 6-year old can differ from what appeals to teens," said Bill Wood, executive editor, AAA Travel Publishing. "Recommendations from our editors help make these distinctions, ensuring easier travel planning and memorable vacation experiences."

AAA's Top Picks for Kids are currently available for 19 U.S. cities coast to coast, including New York, Orlando, Las Vegas, Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles. Selections are separated into categories that include options for kids under 13, teens and kids of all ages.

AAA Editors' Top Picks for Kids can be found in the AAA.com Travel Guides, the downloadable AAA eTourBook guides available at AAA.com/ebooks and the printed AAA TourBook-- guides available at AAA/CAA offices.
