I found the (excuse the plugs, pls) Mobil Travel Guides, the AAA ones,
and the newer similar versions to be useful. Usually available at the
local public library at no cost.
for things like re-enactments, you probably need to be on a re-enactors
list or find a website. Society for Creative Anachronism has a webpage,
but I never remember URLs. :(
Many Chambers of Commerce have calendars months in advance that list the
big things (and I've even managed to get a Genealogy Society meeting
listed regularly on 'em!), and you can get them far enough in advance to
use them for planning.
For the record, to tour the Philip Morris plant in Richmond, minors must
be accompanied by a parent or guardian. (g) The winery tours ditto and
there's no taste-testing by minors. The Tupperware museum in Orlando is
a little treacley but free. The B&O RR museum in Baltimore is a place I
keep meaning to get to, but I hear it's great...and I also hear if you
do a service project there's no admission, but I won't swear to that.
And in DC there is a National Aquarium in the basement of the Commerce
bldg across the street from the Monument. Free. Or you can do the
bug-tour at Smithsonian's Natural History if you're into spiders and such.
Aren't you sorry you asked?
