We were caught speeding along the Interstate-95 somewhere but didn’t stop us. We were caught in a traffic jam along Interstate-85 but that also didn’t stop us. We want to see what Washington, DC has to offer.
After we parked our car in a mall in Richmond, VA, we took the train to DC and start our walking tour of this wonderful city.
First off, we headed west towards Lincoln Memorial, and then headed back east towards The Capitol, we passed by The White House, the Reflecting Pool, World War II Memorial, the Washington Monument (The Pencil), and the Smithsonian Castle.
Around National Mall
We also visited the National Museum of Natural History and National Air and Space Museum.
National Museum of Natural History can overwhelm you with different exhibits. You won’t be able to see everything in a day so we just “guessed” our way around this HUGE museum.
It was almost closing time when we entered the National Air ans Space Museum. We were lucky enough to get a glimpse of this wonderful place.
Can you imagine my joy when I watched “Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonians” ?? It made me reminisce this long, tiring but all sorts of wonderful day. My short stay in DC is enough for it to shoot up the top of my rankings of the places I’ve been. What’s good about DC? No entrance fees and you can wander around by foot!. 🙂
