A family from abroad (2+ 3 teenagers. youngest 15). Staying near Dupont Circle. With car.
Love this forum. Helped me alot.
This is our plan that I put together:
2'nd day- Billy Goat Trail (section A. arounf 5 hours + Vace Italian Delicatesse for lunch) . Monument tour in the evening.
3'rd day- Capitol with Free Tours (Library + history ..) + Capitol tour (from visitor center) + 1 museum (probably Nature). Evening- shopping
4'th day- 2 museums (probably Science + Indians- at least for lunch). Evening- shopping.
5'th day (Thursday) - thinking about Mount Vernon + Old town Alexandria (torpedo factory. opent till 9pm + dinner)
1. Will Mount Vernon interest non-americans?
2. My daughter and I would love to see the the arts at the factory but not sure about the boys.
Any suggestions what they can do meanwhile? Any dinner suggestions that won't be too expensive but still a nice experience (20-25$ per person).
or maybe another suggestion for 5'th day? Maybe another nice trail>
Thanks for your help and advise.
