Next week starts my big road trip and so I thought this week I would highlight all the places I am visiting and get some suggestions on places to see, eat, etc.
I am starting my epic road trip in none other that our nation’s capital, Washington DC! I have never been to DC before believe it or not. I know, I know I am ashamed. HA!
We will be there a couple days and already have passes to visit the White House and the Library of Congress. We put our request in to visit those two places back in February and just got approved last week. I was semi-stressing, LOL!
In order to visit the White House you need to contact one of your state’s senators or representatives and fill out a bunch of paperwork. You can submit it anytime from six months from your trip date until the day before. Obviously you are more likely to get approved the earlier you submit your info. You don’t pick the day or time, just tell them what days you will be in town and then you will hopefully get an approval letter with your date and time. I am soooo glad we get to go!!
We also got approved to tour the Library of Congress. Is it bad the the sole reason I want to see that is the movie National Treasure?? LOL!!
And that’s all we have planned so far. HA! What can I say, we are winging it!!
Some of the other places we want to visit are the Holocaust Museum, one of the Smithsonian museums, the Lincoln Memorial, the Jefferson Memorial, the Washington National Cemetery, the National Mall, Ford’s Theater, and of course Georgetown Cupcake!!
I fully plan on splurging on my diet while on vacation. I don’t want to go completely nuts but I’m not going to deny myself a cupcake or three. HA!
I’m not really sure on where to eat so any and all suggestions are welcome!!
Have you ever been to Washington DC??
What are your favorite places to eat in DC??
