Four adults, three capital

My family (plus my parents) are headed to Washington, DC in just a few weeks. The girls have researched historical sites and museums galore. We'll arrive at the height of Cherry Blossom season and hopefully the end of blistering cold nights.

But, having never been, I'd love to hear about your must-see sites?
Keep in mind, our children are aged eight, eleven and thirteen. They're eager to learn but still fairly naive (the Holocaust museum will have to wait until they're older).

Send your suggestions on over!

So much to see! And pretty crowded over Spring Break. Plan to be at popular Smithsonian museums early. Lines were really long when we were there.

We enjoyed Ford's Theatre. There's a museum on the lower floor and a National Park ranger does a talk, or there's a short play on the stage of the theater.

As adults, we enjoyed the Newseum. Newspapers' front pages from around the world and lots of exhibits. Kids would like it, too, I think especially for the interactive areas. One feature is being able to act as a newscaster and have it filmed. There's too much to see in one day, so the tix are good for two days. I'd check it out and then choose areas of interest.

Oh, and you know about the National Zoo.

Enjoy! It's a great city. You'll want/need to go back. xoA
