D.C. in a day

Jump to last reply

I have recently discovered the destination of an ancestor who left Wales in 1910. I want to visit his grave and that of his son and they are buried in Fort Lincoln cemetary and Arlington respectively.
I have never been to DC and if we are coming I know that my husband would like to see the Capitol.
Can we do all this in a day by public transport and if so could we do it in a day by public transport from Philadelphia?
This will be early November and is likely to be on a Sunday.
I am in touch with relatives who will show me the location of the graves.
Thanks!
