Crayola Factory
The Crayola Factory (30 Centre Square Easton, Penn., about 200 miles north of D.C.) is full of projects and exhibits -- and, of course, the World's Largest Crayon.

The Crayola Factory isn't actually a manufacturing plant, but a museum and visitor center for the public -- although the real factory is just next door. The discovery center inside showcases the manufacturing process of crayons -- one of the only places in the world to see them made the same way that they've been since 1903.

You'll also find more than a dozen exhibits to explore, including the Crayola Hall of Fame (retired crayon colors); Inside Out, where kids (cough, anyone) can draw on the walls), and Crayola After Dark, where kids can use light wands on the wall to create glowing designs.
