Washington D.C. 2017!

D.C. - so much to see! Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool, Washington Monument, the Capitol, & so much more!
We spent two days touring Washington D.C. Our first day was a Saturday during Columbus Day weekend. The plane landed at Reagan National Airport around 11 AM.  We hopped on the Washington D.C. metro train, headed south to Alexandria King Street station about 10 minutes away, & checked in at our hotel.  By 12:30 PM we were in the heart of Washington D.C. headed to lunch at a place Presidents have dined for over a hundred years.  The anticipation of what we would see over the next four days would fuel our tired bodies from an early morning flight.
