I am also considering combining a trip to DC with a trip to Williamsburg. I would be interested in getting an idea of your three day itinery for Washington, if possible. In Williamsburg I wanted to go to Busch Gardens and Colonial Williamsburg. Ant suggestions of what else to do?

I don't have an itinerary planned yet but these are the things we definitely want to fit into our DC portion


Capital building

Air/ space museum

Bureau of engraving (think the kids will get a kick on seeing this)

Monuments - Lincoln, etc

We are going to incorporate some of the sites in the National Treasure's movie since my kids love the movie and are interested in the sights shown/ talked about

Williamsburg we are going to visit the villages, Jametown, etc and Busch Gardens

Manassas, VA

In Williamsburg I recommend a show at the Kimball Theater. It's right outside the historic area so if you don't have a Historic Williamsburg ticket, you can still get in. The tickets for the theater are cheap, like a movie ticket. I saw an 18th century comedy. The plays here are interactive, so you have a really fun time. They're not too long, either.
