As we hadnt been to DC as a family before, we thought this might be a good option. If I had to do it all over again, I recommend the following. Take the trolley the whole way around first...then pick two or three places to stop. Rather than buying a second day, park in the city for $10-$15/day and do the rest the second day. In one day we go to see Lincoln Memorial, Union Station, Congress, the White House, and the National Archives. The second day we elected to go it alone and had ample time to tour two of the Smithsonian Museums. We drove to Georgetown for dinner after we drove ourselves to the National Cathedral and down Embassy Row. We sitll left lots for another trip...you will never see it all in two days, but we saw enough to get a taste.
