Trip Report Washington DC 4th of July, 2012

Jump to last reply

Be sure to call your congress person to arrange a Capitol tour and a tour of the dome - -we only asked for the Capitol tour- so we were a bit disappointed.

Comfortable shoes are a must, pay the $5 for the SmartTrip card - makes it easier to get around and reload for the metro.

Highlights of our trip were the Marine barracks parade (you need to send in a reservation in advance), Library of Congress (most beautiful architecture we saw in DC), Newseum (buy your tickets online), Smithsonian Natural History museum, Moonlight Old Town Trolley Tour (buy your tickets online) and Udvar Hazy space and flight museum (by Dulles). The FDR memorial is terrific, really beautiful something I have never seen widely publicized.

The White House visitor center and old post office are less than stellar. We went to the air/space museum in DC too - the Udvar Hazy is simply just head and shoulders above the DC museum - they have so much more space out by Dulles to house the planes etc.
