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.

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 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)

 I have been to Washington, DC many times over the past couple years, but my first time was briefly in 2008.  After Jeremy passed, I visited his friend Jonathan and he took me to DC.  I saw a few monuments and we went to the American History Museum (where I got to see Kermit the Frog)!  It was a nice trip, so I went back many times again so I could experience it all.

 Visited Washington D.C during my winter vacation 2016. I really enjoyed my time there. Everything seemed to go according to plan while I was there, the people were nice, everything was within walking distance. I had a feeling of nostalgia while there coming from a person who once lived in NYC. I tour the U.S capital, go to most of the wonderful FREE museums. Walk around and be amazed at all of the architecture.

If you're looking to plan a trip to Washington DC, but don't want to stay in the city, I'd reccomend Alexandria. It's right across the river and most hotels offer a package with transportation to/from the hotel to the tourist sites so that you don't have to worry about parking. Plus, Alexandria has such a neat colonial vibe to it...cobble stone streets, great pubs/taverns, and the cutest colonial architecture!
