3 Days in Washington D.C

Jump to last reply

I will be travelling to D.C for 3 days - well 2 1/2 days and was hoping I was using my time wisely. The plan:

17th Nov - arrive about 3.30pm from NYC on the train, go directly to hotel. Do a night tour of D.C

18th Nov - do an 8 hour tour of Mount Vernon, Alexandria & Arlington Cemetery. Nothing planned for that evening as I am travelling alone and don't really want to go out to a restaurant on my own.

19th Nov - go to the National Cathedral - what would be the best way of getting there. Then back to the National Mall and walk down from the Lincoln Memorial to the Capitol Building. Stopping to see the White House of course. I would also like to go to the National Archives but not sure if I'll have enough time.

I then leave early on the 20th to head to Philly.

Any suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
