Hello, I would love some input. We are planning a trip over winter break (late Dec) up from Florida to the DC area. We have 2 children 7 and 9 traveling with us. I was wondering about the different areas, safety, is the metro the way to go for getting around?? Is there parking around there? When looking for a hotel so many subcatergories come up for location that I am afraid to make a mistake! :) So any input would be great...just a 2 day trip, so any must sees and hows the weather?
