Going to DC this weekend!

Recommended Posts

ooh tough question! I live there so let me know if I can help. I love the capitol, the lincoln memorial (they are on opposite sides of the Mall), the portrait gallery - free, the botantical gardens - free, Eastern Market, Dupont circle....are you up for lots of walking around? Also, the Jefferson Memorial is really nice! (everything I listed is free, now that I think about it)

I was just up there for 12 days for work and I happen to be up there over the D-Day Anniversary. With me being a former solider I have to say it was amazing to be at Arlington National Cemetry to watch the Changing of the Guard and laying of the Reef will all the D-Day Vets there. I have been to DC a number of Times and I always make a point to go see the Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. It still gets me every time when they play Taps as this was played at my Papaws Funeral. Really recommend going there. It is very humbling experience and makes you see what people were and are will to do for the US and other.
