Raincitygirl needs Washington, DC help!

Jump to last reply

This is the first thread I have ever started so bear with me please.
A friend and I are going to Washington, DC in July ( we know it will be hot). We will have five nights there and are hoping to have two nights at the shore, somewhere not too far from DC, either on Chesapeake Bay or the Maryland shore. I am hoping somebody can recommend a lovely Band B or small charming inn there.

Then we will take Amtrak to Philadelphia and have two nights there. Total of nine nights for the whole trip.

We will stay at the Dupont Circle Hotel in Washington and if anyone has a hotel they love in Philadelphia I am all ears. Hoping Thin or Amy might give me some local tips for good places to eat.

We fly into BWI and home from Philadelphia. Does anyone have a recommendation for a shuttle or other transportation from BWI into Washington?

I am hoping for recommendations for restaurants, bars, places with live music, shopping,
and"don't miss" sites. We want to walk the length of the Mall, see some of the Smithsonian, interested in art and history.

Am hoping Janet or someone else who knows Virginia can recommend a pretty town in Virginia to do a day trip to.

So open to suggestions from anybody but especially locals...St.Cirq? Dukey?
