Washington is certainly a must-visit state in America. Some of the popular destinations include Mount Rainier National Park, the United States Capitol, Washington Monument, and Lincoln Memorial among others. After all, it is also home to The White House, which is probably on everyone’s travel bucket list.

So before booking your hotel, make sure if it’s at least family-friendly or check recent reviews. For your convenience, we’ve rounded up the best kid-friendly resorts in Washington, USA.
