Watch out DC. We are here….

Day #8, post #9 #350blogging

Its July and its hot. Our second, but officially our first full day, in DC found us at Arlington Ceremtery. My younger sister had given us a great piece of advice; “Pay for the bus tour at the beginning. Then you don’t have to worry about walking all over.” So our first order of business was to buy a ticket to the tram. It was the best advice ALL. Day. Long. We got to ride to the main three points of interest. JFK’s eternal flame site, the Tomb of the Unknown and the Lee House. All in all it was a great day AND bonus: we didn’t get lost on the Metro.

Since my other sister had taken a train from NY to meet us, we decided to do some sightseeing. We took the night bus tour. It was amazing. While you truly can not see all the great sites in just 3 hours, We were able to see some of the greatest night time sights. The monuments were amazing. The kids were so excited to see everything lit up and also excited to ride on a topless double decker bus LOL. My mom was a little worried about traveling the metro from Union Station back to Dupon Circle so late at night, however, that was the most crowded I saw the metro all day. Some people just getting off of work, some going out for the evening and some just getting home. It was calm and relaxing! It was another great day in DC.
