Narrowing things down for DC and Virginia

Jump to last reply

After lurking on threads for quite awhile... I'd love suggestions and opinions of this rough outline for my trip next week!

My boyfriend and I will arrive next Thursday evening into Reagan National and are planning to take a taxi to our hotel, which is the Residence Inn ( Marriott) at 333 E Street SW. We will have flown from LAX all day and will be tired but this will be our only night on our own in DC. Any dinner recommendations for this area of town that are casual, maybe bar food, to soak up a little local color? Good food, low key, classic, is what we prefer, not the nightclub/loud music bright lights scene.

Friday and Saturday we'll be joined by various family members and my " do not miss" list is Arlington and the changing of the guard, the monuments at night ( Washington, Lincoln, Vietnam, MLK, Korea, WW11, FDR, and Jefferson.)
Newseum ( I know we need $ tickets)
National Archives ( I know we need to get timed tickets.)
Outside 9/11 memorial at the Pentagon
I also noted there is music on Friday nights at the Smithsonian Sculpture Garden.
We'll be visiting Gaulledet University as well, my niece is in their MBA program!

Where would you recommend for dinners and lunches for a group of ten ( includes a 2 and 4 year old.) We don't want to be at Starbucks and Mc Donald's for two days but we also don't want to be crisscrossing the city! We will need ice cream, a wonderful place for cocktails with a great view, any other good food recommendations/ hints you have would be much appreciated!

Back with just the two of us, we have all day Monday to explore Mount Vernon and the beautiful countryside on our way to Glouchester, VA where we have a reservation for just one night at the Inn at Warner Hall www.warnerhall.com. ( Historic waterfront hotel)

Monday and Tuesday nights we'll be at the Westin on Broad street ( conference hotel) and I'll be touring museums and sites on my own during the day on Tuesday.

I am hoping for dinner on Monday or Tuesday night at Comfort in Richmond!

Other than that, we're open to suggestions! ( Some of you have already been so generous but I've started another thread because this trip has changed a bit from my original post!)

Thanks!
