Remembering the Time in Washington DC – Nation’s Capital

We loved our time in Washington DC. There is so much to see and do in Washington DC that it’s impossible to see it all in just one visit. We recommend planning at least 3-day trip for first-time visitors to the capital of the USA. Whether you’re visiting over a long weekend or during the week, we guarantee that you won’t run out of fun things to do.

Beyond the traditional D.C. attractions – the Smithsonian museums, the U.S. Capitol, the monuments – you’ll find fresh food, arts and nightlife scenes. You can spend your morning perusing the farmers markets and contemporary exhibits and your afternoon taking in the scenery from the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument before catching a show at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. 

We Totally Loved our time there and are planning a second trip in near future.
