Washington D.C. itinerary please comment

Jump to last reply

We are visiting D.C. in August with our children ages 10 and 12. We have three days and we are staying at the Embassy Suites on 22nd St, NW where we stayed a few years ago when we visited. On our last visit we saw most of the museums on the mall so this time we are not visiting the same museums.

Day 1: Arrive - dinner near or in Georgetown (suggestions?) husband and son going to Nationals game while daughter and mom stay in Georgetown to shop : )

Day 2: We have White House tour tickets at 8:30. After tour head to Postal Museum and then Union Station. Lunch @ Union Station. We have a tour of Congress at 1 pm. After tour head to Library of Congress. Dinner in Dupont Circle.

Day 3: Bureau of Printing and Engraving and National Archives. Lunch. Metro to National Zoo. Return from Zoo. Dinner in Dupont Circle. Monument tour at night. I am still debating whether we should book a tour or do it ourselves on foot. Is the moonlight tour bus worth it?

I welcome any comments and any restaurant suggestions. Pizza Paradiso in Dupont Circle was recommended to us for dinner.

Thanks!
