The allure of the multi-cultural capital, Brussels, stems from its mix of political intrigue, artistic influence, historical significance, and a thriving social scene.
Attractions like Grand Place and St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule) make great kid-friendly stops. There's much more to do: examine the collection at Atomium, browse the exhibits of Belgian Comic Strip Center, take in the local highlights with Walking tours, and appreciate the history behind Manneken Pis.

To find ratings, other places to visit, more things to do, and other tourist information, use the Brussels road trip planning site.
