NEXT STOP: Washington, DC

Washington D.C. has a slew of places to go and things to see.  There are many memorials, museums and, at this time of the year, the National Cherry Blossom Festival.

A great way to start your vacation to Washington D.C. is by visiting the many famous monuments and memorials.  There is the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, the World War II Memorial, and so many more.  These famous sites offer a chance to reflect on what they stand for, and are a great photo-op.

Washington D.C. also has great museums to visit.  The Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum has many aircrafts and space-craft, including the original Wright 1903 Flyer, the Apollo 11 command module, and the first aircraft to travel faster than sound.  If you’re in the mood to be stealthy, grab your fedora and head to the International Spy Museum where you can see many different spy gadgets and become a spy yourself in the interactive experience Operation Spy.  If fashion is more your passion be sure to stop by the National Museum of American History where all of the first ladies’ inaugural ball gowns are on display.

What better way to celebrate the arrival of spring and warm weather than with Washington D.C.’s Cherry Blossom Festival?  From March 20 to April 13 Washington DC is filled with fun activities to help welcome the new season, including fireworks, festivals, and parades.

Washington D.C. is about a three hour drive away and perfect for historians, pilots, patriots, spies, and gardeners.  So grab your pilot goggles, spy watch and camera and make Washington D.C. your next stop.
