I haven't posted since December, now our trip is just a little over two months away and I still need to book our rooms. We are coming on a Monday-Wednesday. We have reservations through our congressman to tour the Bureau of Engraving on Monday morning and the Capitol on Tuesday afternoon. We are on a waiting list for the White House and won't know until the end of April whether we were approved and for when (M-W).
What would you suggest we do on Monday afternoon and Tuesday Morning in relation to where the Bureau of Engraving is located and where the Capitol is located? We would like to see as much as possible in these three short days, but know we can't see it all.
Is it best to stay in DC or in one of the surrounding cities. WHAT AREAS DO WE NEED TO AVOID?!?!?! The ages of all six of us are two between 5-10, two around 40 and two around 60. We will have a rental car but figure it is best to leave it parked and take the "trains" as much as possible.
Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated! I'm still working on getting that invitation to meet the President for my BUSH-fan son (age 9). :)~ Hey, it doesn't hurt to dream!
