I have just pulled together our itinerary for our visit in July. We have 4 full days in DC and would like to get as much out of our time without racing from one site to another. Therefore, would it be possible to provide feedback on my proposal please? Really interested to know if I am being realistic and if I have grouped activities together logically. Am I missing a gem? Any recommendations for dinner or lunch would be greatly appreciated too.
Finally, if I wanted to go to Frederick Douglass National Site, on what day would it make sense to go or do I simply not have time?
As always, a BIG thank you for your help.
