Short scenic car drives from Washington

Jump to last reply

As part of a RTW 50th anniversary trip next year, we've decided to rent a car for the final day of five in Washington DC. It has worked out that we'll have a car from midday one day to return to Dulles at midday the next for our ongoing flight.
We have had a few trips to Washington, and are coming back because we like it, and there is so much to see. Last time we stayed in Anapolis for a few days and liked it too.

I'm wondering how best to use the car in the afternoon and morning of the next day. Our hotel this time is near Reagan airport. Have stayed before in Georgetown, and know how pretty that area is, and also right in the city. Thought about Mt Vernon , which we have not seen, but it may be easier by public transport with no parking worries. Drive to Anapolis would be fine, but maybe there are other areas I don't know about, being an Aussie.

Would appreciate any suggestions. Thank you.
