Things to do around D.C.

Jump to last reply

We need advice on things to see in and around Washington. We will have about 3 days to spend after a business trip.

We have toured the Capitol, the White House, the Holocaust Museum, seen most of the Monuments, the Spy Museum, the Smithsonian Natural Science, American History, Aeronautical, and Native American Museums, the Library of Congress, and Arlington Cemetery.

We have also been to Mt Vernon, Monticello and the Inner Harbor at Baltimore.

What have we missed that is really great?

Is Gettysburg worthwhile? Is the Mint that good? Ford's Theater? Is going up in the Washington Monument anything special? should we consider Chesapeake Bay or Richmond? If so what? Renting a car is not a problem.

So where should someone go who has already seen a lot?

Thanks
