Definitely a must-visit for me, it was cool seeing the landmarks but we wish we'd walked round the other side of the White House!

We traveled to Washington, D.C. for Awesomecon, and got to see some other greats sites while we were there. We saw the FBI building, Chinatown, and the White House (from a distance). We can't wait to go back for a proper visit when there isn't a convention.

I was able to visit briefly while I was attending a business convention (AIPLA). I am putting this back on my bucket list - so that I can visit just to see the sights, museums, and soak in the history.


On this trip I visited:

Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument (however it was closed because of damage from the earthquake - reopens in 2019), Iwo Jima (U.S. Marine Corps Memorial), WW II Memorial, Korean War Memorial, Vietnam War Memorial, Arlington Cemetery, JFK Eternal Flame, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Rode the Metro (subway), Took a night tour of all the buildings, Took a 2 day bus tour (hop on, hop off). Reflection Pool,

I had never been to DC before which makes me feel unamerican.  But I finally did the tour after 20 years of living.

Done. I visited Washington D.C. with my family for our first ever family vacation in July 2010. We drove out there and stayed for about a week. The picture shows two of my sisters and I at one of the museums, I'm on the left.

Saw the White House, the pentagon and arlington cemetery. As well as getting drunk with an air traffic controller who bought us our drinks on his company tab. Awesome!

I've grown up living thirty minutes from D.C. so visiting was never anything spectacular. As I;ve grown up I've realized how blessed I am to have this huge city in my backyard. Millions of people dream of being able to visit D.C. and I can go there on a whim any afternoon I please. I like how familiar I've become with the city and I hope to learn to appreciate it more.

I completed this goal in August 2013, I saw the White House, the slums, Ocean city, biked around downtown Washington, visited the Holocaust Museum, saw all the monuments and so many other attractions that were just an amazing experience.
