Washington, DC for a day

Jump to last reply

Hello all! After attending a motorcycle rally in Matamoras, PA next June, four of us will be working our way back to Texas. I would love to stop off in Washington, DC.

Problem is convincing my dad to ride his motorcycle in the Washington, DC traffic. So, I was looking for a place to stay on the outskirts of town, possibly on the way to I-66, parking the bikes, and taking a tour from the hotel. Any suggestions on hotels? I'm expecting higher prices in the DC area, but is $100 - $150 a night to low? We aren't that picky, just mainly interested in something clean.

On how to get around? I have been searching the forum and have found that a night tour of the monuments sound great! Then taking an onboard tour of DC the next day. The onboard tour company picks at 1100 Penn Ave. Any suggestions as to the best way to get there without driving the motorcycles?

I know we won't have but a day and a half in the area, so mainly just an overview of the area is all I'm looking for. Our ages range from 38 - 64. We love historical sites. Some of the group is not able to walk long distances, so tour buses would probably be better for us. I would appreciate any input.
