Washington D.C. & Virginia Introduction

Hello! Thank you for visiting my blog.  I created this blog for families who want to travel while not "breaking the bank".  My husband and I are both teachers, making a budget all the more important.  Our son is 13 years old. We want to show him as much of this beautiful world as we can before he heads off to college.  I guess our wanderlust can best be summed up as "Life moves pretty fast.  If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." Ferris Beuller. Our journey will take us to Washington DC for a second time and southern Virginia a first time. So come along with us on our journey to a place where a nation was born!

In October 2017 we traveled to Washington D.C. & Virginia over Columbus day weekend. We arrived at 11 AM Saturday morning and left Tuesday afternoon around 6:00 PM.  Our travels would take us to world renowned museums, monuments, & historical sites. This four day weekend would be unlike any we had before. The memories formed will stay with us the rest of our days.  

This would be our second trip to Washington DC and first trip to Virginia.  Over the coming weeks I will post about our trip: lodging, sights to see, food to eat, and other tips to help you as you plan your trip to Washington DC & Virginia.
