Wordless Wednesday: DC at Night

One of our group members shouldered the load and arranged for a group bus tour of the National Monuments at Night.  It was chilly, but I am so glad we went.  The Washington Monument is still undergoing repairs from the earthquake last year.

Here is what we saw:
The Capitol

The White House


The World War II Memorial



The Jefferson Memorial




The Martin Luther King Memorial





The Lincoln Memorial


The Raising of the Flag at Iwo Jima
I think this was my favorite one!

I was also able to visit the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, the National Holocaust Museum, and the American Indian Museum.  The National Holocaust Museum was very moving, a must see when you are in Washington.  I wasn't that impressed with the American Indian Museum.... I just thought there would be more to it, BUT the restaurant was an experience because the selections were based on different areas of Native Americans, like the Northwest, the Plains, and so on.  The Air and Space Museum was fun, and I wish we had had time to go into the planetarium.  Those things fascinate me, but we were running out of time to see it all.




There is nothing quite like being in our nation's capital.  I already have the bug to plan a trip out here with the girls so we can see it all.  I think, though, we will fly and rely on the Metro and taxis.....I don't believe our marriage could stand the crazy driving in the big town.  ;-)
