Itinerary suggestion needed for DC

Jump to last reply

I plan to drive to DC from new York next week. I will be traveling with 2 kids 5 and 8 years. My plan is to leave from Plainview, NY around 6 am (or early to beat the traffic) and arrive DC . Spend the night in DC and drive back the following day evening after the traffic dies down(when would that be in DC?)

I want to hit all the highlights - FDR, Lincon, Jefferson memorial, white house, Washington monument, the capitol, WWII memorial, veterens and Korean war memorials. Did I leave any? When I plugged in all theses, it is about a 6 mile walking trip. Is walking and seeing the best way or are there other options. I have ruled out the taketours/gotobus tours as they are time bound. Is there a better way to split up?

What is the nearest subway/bus station that is accessible from a decent hotel 3 or 4 star hotel? Hotel recommendation is appreciated as well.
