Weekend in Washington


We had visitors from back home last weekend, so before hitting all the delights of New York we grabbed a hire car and headed to Washington for the Weekend (they were second time visitors so it was okay).

America’s capital city is full of iconic monuments, memorials and museums. Once parked up at the hotel, it was a very easy city to navigate on foot.  We managed to tick of most of the sights in one (very long) day including the White House, the Washington Memorial and many of the museums. There is also a good Metrorail system, but we never needed to use it. 

Walking around we felt like such New Yorkers as we were struck by how quiet it was everywhere!

Although there are lots of museums to visit, many of which are free. We only managed to squeeze in the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum and the International Spy Museum. Both of which are popular and great for children. 

Enjoy our snaps from our weekend! We also loved having the car; if you have any other suggestions for weekend breaks within driving distance of NYC I would love to know.
