Finally sharing our trip to Washington D.C. we took with my husband and sister in law couple of weeks ago in this Washington travel guide.
If you are planning a trip to the capitol I can only recommend to visit during spring when the blossoms are blooming (usually happening between mid-March and mid-April), when the sun is not burning and your only mission is not to find shade. This is how it was the first time we went to D.C. last August and this year late June.
We spent 1 whole day exploring the city and 2 nights so we aren’t too tired. This is what I definitely recommend doing to fill up your itinerary and don’t think about hitting the rode early. Be ready to walk a looot. The distances are massive.
We stayed in the most pleasant and quite neighborhood in Kimpton Carlyle Hotel Dupont Circle. This neighborhood is great if you want to be in close proximity to the Monuments and Museums..but still peaceful and far enough from all the tourists, located only a short Uber ride away from Lincoln Memorial.
We were up in Queen Queen Premier room with two comfortable beds and a stylishly designed bathroom/shower. 5 o’clock wine tasting didn’t hurt either. So coming back from a day on your feet to a fresh sheets and a tv was great.
When you think of D.C. you most likely picture monuments in your head. The White House, Capitol Building, Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial and a countless amount of museums. Looking at a map view everything looks pretty much walkable but in reality it’s not. Who doesn’t like challenge, right? !Wear comfortable old shoes!
We started the day with The White House making our way to Lincoln Memorial, then Smithsonian Museum and explored the National Gallery of Art. Ending our day we walked to the Capitol Building and took an Uber to the hotel.
My husband and his sister went for a night drive around the city and checked out Lincoln memorial at night and I decided to end the day with binge watching couple of movies in my bed.
Hope this was in any way helpful and interesting!
Have fun at your trip,
