I KNOW< I KNOW bill just could'nt resist!!!
Wow what a great trip! We found a great little hotel, it was close to everything and right on the metro. We parked the car for the whole time and just walked and took the metro every where. We were up at 8:00 and didn't get back till 8:00 or 9:00. We really saw alot of cool stuff and didn't fall into the tour group stuff. Every one was so nice. My 2 favorite museums were the natural history and the Native American Museum. The conservatory was very very cool. We ate at a different restaurant every day. The antiquing was a little high dollar but, pretty unbelievable stuff. I would definitely go again, we didn't see it all. The only thing i would do differently, I'd take Amtrak. The driving is nerve racking. It's a mad house. The "BELTWAY" gives me nightmares. I'd recommend staying at "The Americana" hotel in Crystal city. Only 90.00 a night and very comfortable and very clean. The best breakfasts. The metro will get you to the heart of it, in 12 min.
