We are travelling from Australia and will be in DC for a week in late December!
We (2A & 2C) have a booking at the Hampton Inn DC/Convention Centre which appears to be reasonably close to all the tourist attractions and public transport nearby.
We want to see all the usual tourist attractions - White House, Pentagon, Smithsonian Museums, Zoo and have just discovered Mt Vernon on a website. We would also like to take public transport and spend the day there as it looks absolutely gorgeous (but probably very cold in Dec!).
What else is a must see while we are there? Our kids are aged 8 & 13.
Also, I know there was a blizzard in DC last year. Are they forecasting or are you expecting to have snow in late December this year?
Thanks for helping us to make our trip one to remember
