Washington DC trip
Moms View Message Board: General Discussion: Washington DC trip
Hi everyone! Im leaving this Thursday night for Washington DC with my middle DD's 8th grade class. I havent been there since I was 7! So - needless to say - it's been awhile & I'm sure there have been lots of changes! Anyone have any input on secrets or special places we should check out? Maybe a really cool pic opportunity?
We are on our way out the door! The bus leaves the school at 3:45 am!!! Hope the bus is quiet and we all get some sleep. We have a whirlwind 2 days of non-stop site seeing! Hope I survive!
Should have a ball. Tell us all about it when you get home.
We made it back!!! It was BUSY....and TIRING....and AWESOME!!!!
Tell us everything you did and what we should do when we go!
WOW this is gonna be hard cuz we jam packed so much into just 2 short days!! We went to the Arlington cemetary which was fascinating. It was alot of walking though & very Hilly. and 90 degrees - so extremely hot! I suggest getting a tour guide since they know all the facts and secrets! We went to many different monuments & memorials. Air force, FDR, WWII, Korean war, Vietnam, Iwo Jima, the list goes on & on. My favorite was Iwo Jima - very moving. and WWII - Beautiful. & Korean - so real. We also saw the white house, the capitol building, Reflection Pool, Archives, Union Station, & museum of air & science. I'm sure that is not all - it was BUSY!!!!!
