Hi! Me, my family and friends are going to Washington DC for April Vacation and can you tell us your favorite places in Washington? Thanks!

We already have:

The National Zoo,

The Smithsonian,

The National Museum of American History,

Kennedy Center,

The Three houses of Government,

6 Flags America,

Hiking at great Falls Park,

Possibly:

National Air Space Museum,

Bureau of Engraving &Printing

Washington Monument (Is there a mall in here?)

Thank you! (We cannot go to the White house because the registration is for at least 30 days and our spring Break already ends at that time!)
Also appropriate places for kids 10-13!

Best answer:

Answer by ms bell
You’ve listed most of my favorites. I will add the Lincoln Memorial, State Capitol Building, WWII Memorial, and Ford’s Theatre.

The National Zoo is fantastic. One of the best zoos in the country. You’ll also enjoy Falls Park. Very scenic and relaxing. The view from the observation deck of the Washington Monument is breathtaking. (I hope you get to see it from above if you’re flying to Reagan International Airport. I saw it flying from Chicago and the view was spectacular.)

If you have time, make sure to tour the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. It is well worth it. Very interesting.

What do you think? Answer below!

What are the best places to travel to in the US? Why?

January 13th, 2014

Question by : What are the best places to travel to in the US? Why?
Out of all the states, which is the best to travel to? This is both money wise and entertaining wise. My family and I want to go somewhere for a short trip. We have been to Washington D.C and live in Texas so both those places are out.

Thanks in advanced!

Best answer:

Answer by Joe C
Concentrate on California. There is so much to see in the state from the beaches to the mountains to the deserts. Lots of amusement parks, attractions, National Parks, and places to see before you die. You can spend many years here and not see everything.

http://www.visitcalifornia.com/

San Diego is one of the nicest cities in the country. It’s a major tourist destination and there are tons of things to do. With 70 miles of beautiful beaches, countless parks and gardens, major league sports, dozens of golf courses, world class museums, Tony Award winning theater, great cuisine, best weather in the country, high tech industry, major universities, and the best zoo in the world, it’s my choice as THE place to live and play in the USA.

Some must see attractions are the world famous Zoo, Sea World, and Balboa Park. Known as the “Smithsonian of the West” Balboa Park is the largest urban cultural park in the country. You can get a park passport which allows you entry to a dozen museums as well as the zoo.
http://www.balboapark.org/info/passport.php

Other attractions in the park are the Air and Space Museum, Ruben H. Fleet Science Center and IMAX theater, the Natural History Museum, the Museum of Man, the Automotive Museum, the Old Globe Theatre, the Hall of Champions, the Botanical Gardens, and the largest outdoor pipe organ in the world (free concerts on Sunday).

La Jolla offers great views, great surfing, great food, great theater, and great shopping.
Check out the surfers at historic Windansea Beach. At low tide you can walk out onto the tide pools. Walk along the Cove and check out the caves. Visit the Museum of Contemporary Art. Take a stroll on Prospect St and check out the shops, galleries, and have some authentic Mexican food at Alfonso’s. Then head to the Birch Aquarium at The Scripps Institution of Oceanography. It has a spectacular view of the bluffs over the Pacific Ocean. The Tony award winning La Jolla Playhouse is located nearby on the campus of UCSD. For a few laughs at night, The Comedy Store is on Pearl St.

What are some must see places in different states and provinces?

April 18th, 2013

Question by Bob Jones: What are some must see places in different states and provinces?
I am planing a trip with some friends around North America, starting and ending in Toronto, ON. What would be ideal things to see in each state/city that we pass through? We will only have one month.
These are the places we will go through in order:
Winnipeg, Manitoba
Regina, Saskatchewan
Calgary, Alberta
Jasper, Alberta
Whistler, British Columbia
Vancouver, BC
Los angeles, California
La Habra Heights, CA
Phoenix, Arizona
New Mexico
Texas
Louisiana
Lynchburg, Tennessee
Jacksonville, Florida
Georgia
Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
North Carolina
Washington
New Jersey
Philadelphia
Rhode Island
Boston
Montreal, Quebec
and back to Toronto

Best answer:

Answer by mstess
That’s quite the itinerary you’ve got. However, I personally don’t think a month will be long enough to see all those places. It’s 4500 km’s just from Toronto to Vancouver. All you’d be doing was driving. You wouldn’t have a chance to stop and see anything.

A couple of years ago we flew to Toronto and rented a car. We spent a couple of days in Ontario, a couple of days in Quebec, and then saw the Maritimes. We drove back though the northern states. We did it in 17 days, and put about 6000 km’s on the car. I felt it was way too rushed. We hardly got to see anything, as we were always driving.

Q&A: what are the best places to park when touring washington dc. for the memorials, monuments,etc,,,?

March 14th, 2013

Question by SexyArmyWife: what are the best places to park when touring washington dc. for the memorials, monuments,etc,,,?
we are going up tomorrow, will be traveling 95N. into dc. could you please give us some websites, and if you live there, also some local tips on were to eat. thanks. we want to see the white house, washington monument, lincoln monument, and veitnam memorial. thanks

Best answer:

Answer by VeggieTart
I really don’t recommend driving in Washington, DC, as a lot of the places you want to go to have very little parking. Find a station outside the city and Metro in.

1) Unless you contacted your Congressperson, you’re not going to be able to tour the White House. And even if you do contact him/her, it’s not guaranteed you’ll get in. If you do, the closest stop is McPherson Square on the Orange and Blue lines. The White House exit will be indicated on the signage.

2) The Washington Monument is in the middle of the National Mall. There is almost no parking nearby. The closest Metro stop is Smithsonian on the Orange and Blue lines, Mall entrance.

3) The Vietnam Memorial and Lincoln Memorial don’t have much parking nearby. It’s about half a mile south of the Foggy Bottom Metro station on the Orange and Blue lines. You’ll see a hospital entrance on your left as you come up the escalator. Turn right to head to the Lincoln and Vietnam Memorials. (http://www.stationmasters.com/System_Map/FOGGYBOT/foggybot.html)

There aren’t a whole lot of dining options near the monuments, but Foggy Bottom is about a 15- to 20-minute walk into Georgetown, which has tons of restaurants. Walk up to Washington Circle and walk along Pennsylvania Avenue, which turns into M Street, to get to Georgetown.

There’s no easy Metro access, but Adams Morgan (the closest Metro is the Woodley Park station on the Red Line) has numerous restaurants along 18th Street NW.

Another good place for dining is the U Street corridor between 16th and 12th streets NW (U Street station on the Green Line).
