    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...

    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...

    On Holiday

    I have been to Washington once, it was the week before Christmas and it was freezing.  I remember seeing so many of the sites in a very limited amount of time and the one that struck me the most was the war memorial beside the Washington Memorial, it was so silent and all...

    I Love Dc

    I went last Saturday!  I took the Metro in.  I love riding the Metro.  It is like a mini United Nations!  People of every race from countries all over the world all peacefully riding together.  Too bad the whole world can't learn from the Metro! ...

    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.

    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.
