Re-Visit DC

Jump to last reply

We are thinking of visiting DC next spring. It does not have be during the Cherry Blossom season. Last time we went to sightseeing, there was a terrible snowstorm on President's weekend which proved John Kennedy's saying that DC is "A city of Southern efficiency and Northern charm."

There is much we want to see including the Smithsonian (and Air and Space), Holocaust Museum, National Gallery, Library of Congress and if we have time the HIrshhorn.

We are NY'ers, so we will take AMTRAK down to one of the most beautiful rail stations in the country. How is Foggy Bottom for an area to stay if the hotel is near a Metro Stop? We would just like to be near restaurants for a light breakfast or a light dinner. What are some of the other good neighborhoods in which to stay, since what we want to see is spread out.

I saw a list of everyone's favorite restaurants and that looks terrific.

Thanks in advance.
