Hi fellow trip advisors. I'm starting to research our next trip to USA which will be in Oct 2013 - ridiculously early I know but I just can't help myself!!
Anyway, I just have a few questions about DC that I'd like some info on:
1. We have decided upon the Air and Space museum as well as the American History museum. My husband is a bit of a NASA/space fanatic (his dad was in the air force here in Aus and worked on the F1-11 planes) and we both love modern history. Given this info, how much time would you advise for each of these museums?
2. We did the HOHO bus in San Francisco which was great to give us our bearings of the city as well as good photo ops. Would you recommend this for DC to see the monuments and other sights?? Our other thought was to hire a car although I imagine it may be difficult to park anywhere??
3. We want to go to Arlington Cemetary. I have a bit of an issue with going to grave-sites as a 'tourist'- somewhat disrespectful. How would you recommend visiting these sites in a respectful manner??
