My trip to Washington, DC - any more feedback?

Jump to last reply

We have finally settled on our hotel and proposed itinerary. I just would like some feedback to make sure we aren't fooling ourselves. My friend's leg isn't doing great so mobility will be a challenge. Doctor told him today to stay off it...Trip is in 3 weeks so hopefully it improves. He wants us to plan the itinerary without him and he will manage. Probably will sit out some of these.

Here is my 2nd thread on it. http://www.fodors.com/community/united-states/trip-to-wash-dc---some-questions-remain.cfm
