Washington DC: So Many Sights, So Little Time

I was going through my drafts folder and found this post from several years ago about our first trip to DC.  We were still pushing RJ in a stroller, I had short hair and Obama was in the White House. Indulge my walk down memory lane.

 

We took a road trip to visit my in-laws in Pennsylvania and stopped in DC for a couple days on the way back home.  It was just a 3 hour drive from PA that took us deep through Amish country. *After this trip, I’m really intrigued by the Amish.*  Anyway, we arrived at our hotel, The Beacon & Corporate Quarters, dropped off our bags and hit the pavement. When planning the trip, we’d debated about whether to stay in DC or an outlying suburb.  Staying in the city had its benefits. Hotels outside of the city weren’t going to be that much cheaper, our hotel was in a great location and we could walk to a metro station and most sightseeing attractions.

We would have benefited from one more day in the city, but it was a great vacation.

We visited the National Zoo but had to rush because we needed to make it across town to the Nationals game. This lovely ape was catching her urine and drinking it. Yes, this is the image I decided to capture. It was awful, but I couldn’t look away.

We were, recently, back in the DMV to spent time with friends, take in an Orioles game and visit the National Museum of African American History and Culture. I’ll cover that trip soon.

 

There’s so much to see and do in DC and so much of it is free. What’s your favorite DC attraction?
