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.

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 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,

We moved to Falls Church, VA (about 7 miles outside of DC) in 2007 so that my son could attend elementary school at Gallaudet in Washington, DC. That said, we got to step right into DC many times over the course of 2 years there. Saw all the monuments, parades, festivals, had brunches in Dupont Circle, cruised through Georgetown (pretending we were important people), etc etc. (Will post pics when I can dig some up)

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.

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.

We saw the Memorial, stayed at a hotel near a McDonalds and had a lot of great photo opportunities. Edgar Hoover had the ugliest building. A cop was feeding a squirell some nuts. Aparently they already knew each other. We saw natural history museum. I saw a six foot squid. We saw Mt. Vernon - Washington's home. He had a manor, farm and planted some trees. We saw his bedroom, spies and  how he died of an infection. RIP.

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

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!
