I'm planning a trip to New York and Washington for March 2014 with 3 days in NY and 4 in DC . My initial itinerary has the Washington leg spanning the weekend, including the first day of the Cherry Blossom Festival.
Would this make visiting the monuments and museums ( Museum of American History, Museum of American Art and Crime and Punishment Museum) a problem?
How crowded are they likely to be? Is midweek less busy?
I could swap the legs round, spending Tue - Fri in Washington(which is more expensive), but it might be worth it to be able to tour the museums when it's quieter.
Or I am I overthinking things?
Grateful for any advice or suggestions please.
