Washington D.C. 2017!

D.C. - so much to see! Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool, Washington Monument, the Capitol, & so much more!
We spent two days touring Washington D.C. Our first day was a Saturday during Columbus Day weekend. The plane landed at Reagan National Airport around 11 AM.  We hopped on the Washington D.C. metro train, headed south to Alexandria King Street station about 10 minutes away, & checked in at our hotel.  By 12:30 PM we were in the heart of Washington D.C. headed to lunch at a place Presidents have dined for over a hundred years.  The anticipation of what we would see over the next four days would fuel our tired bodies from an early morning flight. 

As luck would have it, my husband, son, & myself all three had a school holiday for Columbus Day!  This almost never happens so I booked the trip to D.C. & began making plans. We would have just short of 4 days for our trip. The first two days of our trip would be spent in Washington D.C. In the coming weeks I will give you details about where we stayed & places we visited.  I will fully review hotels, transportation options, restaurants, museums, & tours from our trip.  Remember to subscribe to my blog so you do not miss any of our trip to Washington D.C. and Southern Virginia.

In the meantime, here are some highlights from day one of our trip:

A 10 minute ride on the Metro took us to King Street station
where our hotel was a short walk away.

Our hotel was near the King Street station metro making our commute into D.C. easy.

Our lunch where U.S. Presidents have dined for over 100 years was tasty!

No trip to Washington D.C. is complete without a visit to the White House.

This building houses some of the most important documents from the history of mankind.
