First, and update. My youngest son will be graduating from High School in 2 weeks and has been named Class Salutatorian. He will be attending UC Berkely in the fall. MIT's loss is Cal's gain. My oldest son continues at San Jose State and has set the curve in 4 of his 5 Engineering Classes this semester. To reward my youngest son, we are going to Washington DC on vacation for a week.

The reflections almost looked like ghosts among the men etched on the wall.
I get chills thinking about it. Try to see Monticello if you can, it's fascinating. Of course, you could spend all days at the Smithsonian, easily! Have you considered taking a tour of the Freemasons or Masonic sites. I've been in DC once but didn't know they existed.

Viet Nam wall is great.

A tour of the memorials and area at night is a beautiful perspective. Once with a group of women, we left the group taking a tour bus and struck our own deal with one of the private tour guides to take us around. He knew sex chats in joliet we didn't know about, took us where ever we asked, and knew people to sneak us into tours that were booked up. I agree with all the above ideas.

Catherine, tell your cousin that the Holocaust Museum is amazing.
There is ren's section, if you are taking young ones; but even that tells the story honestly. In the main museum, some of the most intense exhibits are over a wall; so if you have young children too short to see over the wall, YOU get to decide if you want to lift them up to see, which also puts you right there to talk to them about what they're seeing if they need it.
Schedule time to decompress afterward. In good weather you could sit in any green space.
We were told to find the food court 1st chat, I think, the Agriculture Department building. It looks like offices and not open to the public, but when you tell them at the desk you want to eat at the food court, they send you back.

Also take time to enjoy the beauty! Coming from the Central Valley in California, I loved all the green, trees, and for the most part lack online friends chat room fences around homes. It was a totally different world in DC and Virginia.
