    Everyone Should

    Everyone should visit our nations capital.  There is a lot of history there of course.  My favorite is the air and space museum.  The monuments are nice.  A lot of history has been made there.  It makes me think of what elected officals should be...

    On the Way to Ny.

    I have been through there sooo many times on the way to NY and back.  One time my dad decided to take us into the city to ride around and see the White House and such.  There was sooo much traffic and we later discovered that we should've left out the detour.  I...

    Two Times

    I have been to DC twice. The first time was in 2007 when my mom went there for work and the second time was in March of 2012 with my senior class for the class of 2012 trip. The first time was cool but the second time was my favorite because I saw more than on the first trip. I...

    Becoming My Favorite Vacation Spot

    DC has so much to see and do, and most of it is free! I can get there easily on Amtrak, then ride the Metro everywhere once I'm there. I love it.

    I was on Metro (DC subway system) today... some thoughts: 1) Did they kill the AC inside stations recently? I don't remember it being so hot in them and was in 2 like this today today... 2) I saw this fun trick years ago. Works in old cars, don't know if works in new ones...

    Intern

    I was one of many interns in the Winter of 1997. I lived in Virginia but rode the Blue line everyday, then the Red. I loved DC. It was one of the best times in my life. My favorite place to visit has to be Mount Vernon, though. It's peaceful and beautiful. I get to walk through...

    I Have Been To Washington D.C. Several Times.

    I grew up in the mid-Atlantic region, and when I was a kid, my family would go on a vacation every summer.  One year we went to Washington DC and I got to see a bunch of things - the zoo, some museums, maybe even the White House.  It's been a long time, so I don't...

    2001 Presidential Inauguration

    Our ROTC was supposed to march there, but sadly, we couldn't. But we went anyway. & it was nice. I loved the museums, like the space center, the US Mint, the white house, etc.
