    Many Times

    I've visited Washington, DC so many times I feel like a native.  When I was growing up my parents took me there for vacation several times and in the past number of years I've visited there many times on my own.  There is so much to do there - the Smithsonian...

    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...

    ~RIDING On the Metro~

    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...

    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...

    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.
