Mrs. Reece goes to Washington

Trains, I believe Are the most civilized way to travel. Comfortable seats, ample leg room and of
course no hurtleing through space at 600 plus miles an hour. This will be my first trip to our nations Capitol and I am quite giddy! However I am still annoyed that I can't post pictures until my return. I would love some recomendations of what I should see, do, eat and of course where to shop.

You have to go to the monuments. I love the Smithsonian. If it were me I would definitely go to Mount Vernon...and they have a fun little cafe there that had a good peanut soup. They have a McCormick and Schmick there which is delicious if you like fish...although it is a little more pricey. Arlington is really cool...especially because JFK is buried there. I loved touring the Capitol building. If you can find a connection a White House tour would be cool...if not at least go see it. Georgetown has a really pretty campus if you go during cherry blossom season. I could go on and on because I love it. You will have a fabulous time. But here is A LOT of walking. :)

The Holocaust museum is a profound experience as well. It is eye-opening and a little sickening, but it is a good place to go.

Everyone says to do the Smithsonian. We didn't when we were there and totally regretted it. Next time!

Sorry, forgot to add, I would second Mount Vernon. There is such a reverence at site of Washington's burial place. I might go so far as to say that was my favorite thing. Even above the Lincoln Memorial.

I did live back in DC and there is a secret little pizza place that just moved down from the City Sbarro.
