WASHINGTON DC - short, first trip

Jump to last reply

I am taking my parents (in their 70s, but fit and active) to DC for their first ever trip. Part of the time we will spend visiting my daughter at college, but I need to squeeze in some serious sightseeing for them as well. Trip is in mid-February so of course I'm a bit worried about rain, but am hoping there won't be a lot of crowds even though we'll be there over President's Day weekend.

Here's my plan so far, and please let me know if I'm missing anything...

arrival: Saturday afternoon -- see Georgetown

day 1 (sun)
morning: OPEN
afternoon: OLD POST OFFICE TOWER for view
1:00-4:30 walking tour of monuments


day 2 (mon)
morning: library of congress -- arrive 9:45, reading room opens at 10
Capitol Building 10:30 am tour (arrive 45 min early)
afternoon: AMERICAN HISTORY MUSEUM

day 3 (tues)
morning: OPEN (but have requested white house tour)
afternoon: depart for airport

ideas for OPEN times:
BUREAU OF ENGRAVING AND PRINTING (only open on tuesday morning of our time in DC -- are the lines long there? haven't visited in years)
NATIONAL ARCHIVES (can you get tickets for this? last time I went the lines were REALLY long)
ARLINGTON CEMETERY (bus tours 8:30-4:30)
OLD TOWN ALEXANDRIA

Am I missing something obvious??

Thanks so much!
