Yesterday my family got back from a week-long trip to our Nation’s Capitol, Washington D.C. And even though we walked every day to everywhere we went, it still was awesome. We saw a ton of different things that I will remember forever.
Here are some of the things we did:
*Go up to the top of the Washington Monument
*Saw the Lincoln and Jefferson Memorial
*Go to Ford’s Theatre and saw where Lincoln got assassinated
*Go to the Bureau of Engraving and Printing (where they make money) and saw 384 MILLION DOLLARS just in one room
*Got a tour of the U.S. Capitol
*Went to the Library of Congress
*Got a tour of the Pentagon; Which did you know it covers 6.4 million sq ft and the inside courtyard can hold the U.S. Capitol?!
*Went to 4 of the Smithsonian Museums: Museum of Natural History, Museum of American History, Air and Space Museum, and the American Indian Museum
*We saw the White House, and saw all the security that comes with it 🙂
*Went to Arlington National Cemetary where we saw John F. Kennedy’s tomb, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the Changing of the Guards, which was long, but sweet
*Saw the FBI building (it was right down the road from our hotel)
*Saw the Korean, World War 11 and Vietnam Memorial
*Went to Union Station
*Went to the Holocaust Museum
I think that’s about all we did while we were there. Oh and we were in our hotel when the 3.6 earthquake happened, but we just heard a boom. D.C. was AWESOME!!!!!
