DC questions again - what to do with my 6 yr-old?

Jump to last reply

We have 5 days to spare in Washington DC next week. I have the following to-do's and questions on my list:

Day 1 I want to take my son to see Washington Memorial and Lincoln Memorial, and the White House. Should we take a guided tour or can we do it by ourselves? Do you have tour companies to recommend?

Day 2 Museums! Air and Space and Natural History.

Day 3 Cherry blossom parade - is it worth to wait in the crowds? In the afternoon, we may go to museums again.

Day 4 Newseum

Day 5 Bureau of Engraving and Printing tour - do we need to book this tour in advance? It only takes couple hours, so anything else can we do on that day?

My son may not like to walk too much. So I try to group the activities. Any suggestion is welcome! Thanks!
