Make a truly meaningful summer vacation by checking with churches, chambers of commerce, universities, or tourist bureaus to help you discover fascinating, but often lonely, people who are in our country from another land.  Offer them a diner deal - you'll buy the groceries if they'll cook a native dish.  

To sharpen your family's observation skills, leave the camera at home when you travel and take drawing pads instead.  Before hitting the museums, zoos, and landmarks, prepare your kids.  On the way to the art museum give each child a snip of colored paper in a geometric shape.  Instruct each to find that exact shape in a painting or sculpture.  At the museum gift shop, let each child select one post card of a work to be found on the premises; have her tell you when sees the original.  For zoo excursions, cast each family member as a certain creature and have them look for their enemies, competitors, and habitats.  

Historic sites are quite abstract for little ones.  Prepare them by reading fiction set in that era.  Robert Lawson's Ben and Me is great for colonial America, and Maggie and the Pirates portrays a vanishing Louisiana that even preschoolers will enjoy.  Inner city life is captured for little ones in The Boy Who Didn't Believe in Spring by Lucille Clifton.  And, by all means, attend worship while on vacation – high churches in Boston, the Baptist outpost in Lanai in Hawaii, or a ski slope service in the Rockies.
