This was our big trip this summer, a week in Washington, D.C.. We stayed in Woodbridge, VA, and took the Metro in most days. We didn’t wake up early enough to catch any of the tours, but we did see quite a bit. We walked around the National Mall one day to visit the Washington & Lincoln Monuments; the WWII, Korean, and Vietnam War memorials; and the White House. We spent a day at the Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum, and another at the National Archives (where the US Constitution and Declaration of Indendence are housed), walking by the Capitol building, and visiting the Bureau of Engraving & Printing.

We also took a couple of side trips, one to Mount Vernon and another to Colonial Williamsburg.
