I have just found out that I will be staying in Reston to attend a work meeting Nov 11-15. I will be in meetings until 5:00pm so won't be able to do anything during the daytime. I will have a rental car so I am able to drive in to Washington after the meetings.
I understand that everything is closed in the evening so all I will be able to do is walk around and see the sights and take some photos. I have nevertheless even to Washington before but would like to walk by the White House and through National Mall.
Can anyone advise on good parking areas or anything special I should do or see? I am thinking I will come in to Washington for at least 2 evenings, maybe 3 if there is lots of things to see.
