My wife & I are heading to DC for our 5 year anniversary. Thanks to me work travel for the last year we were able to use points for most of it. Since it will be her first time there we plan to mostly just see the highlights. We are only there for a long weekend so I know we can’t see everything. We fly in Friday morning 10/21 and are staying at the Park Hyatt. I’m wondering if this schedule looks manageable.
Friday Afternoon - Capitol Building (tour booked), Supreme Court, Library of Congress. It’s then back to the hotel to prepare for the evening. I think we are going to eat at the Blue Duck Tavern at the hotel we then have tickets to a show at the Kennedy Center.
Saturday - Museums of American History, Natural History, National Archives. After the museums close we plan to walk around the Mall and visit the monuments and memorials. It will be just around sunset so I think it should look nice.
Sunday - Arlington, National Gallery of Art, Air & Space Museum. Then off to the airport for a 7pm flight.
My wife wants to tour the White House and we are waiting on the status on it for Saturday. I’m trying to make a plan with the stuff we want to see but leave things open to change as the mood hits us. Since almost everything revolves around the Mall area I expect we will be walking most of the time with a few jumps on the Metro or a cab. What do you think?
