I am taking a VERY short trip to DC, but I want to jam as much into this trip as I can. I am taking my son and step daughter who are both 10. They are interested in museums and the zoo, but I also want to show them some monuments. My son's main goal is to see Oscar the Grouch lol and my step daughter and I both want to see the pandas. Is it possible to do the museums and zoo? What are some things that are must see? Is DC safe at night? I was thinking about going to the Lincoln Memorial at night. HELP!! Ha ha this Texas momma is going crazy!!
