Is renting a car a needed?? (also best sites to see in DC for first timers)

Jump to last reply

My family of 4 are planning on visiting DC the middle of May for a week's stay. My wife and I and 2 college age kids. I have found an Embassy Suites hotel (they have a breakfast fuffet included so that is a big seller) by the Dulles airport for around a $105/night, since we will be a little ways away from the Capitol is it worth renting a car to get around or can one use the trains to get around? Wondering if it is worth renting a car?

We are planning on hitting as many of the major spots as possible. We have never been there before so would also like info on what sites are must see for first timers.
