    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! ...

    Arlington Field Trip

    (I know, it’s not part of Washington D.C, but it should be) Today, I had a field trip to Arlington National Cemetery. It was amazing, all the buildings, the grave's architecture, and sorry if this is disrespectful, but one of the graves was named "McDonald", I found it funny...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.
