We are planning to visit Washington in August for a day and will be driving in from Ocean City Maryland.I was planning to drive into Union Station and park there then use the metro and walk to get around.
I was then planning to visit the Space & Air Museum, then see the Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument, White House etc and finish the day at the Spy Museum.
Realise that I cannot do it justice in one day but our time is limited, I believe it is a 3 hour drive and was planning to get there about 10 in the morning and leave about 8 or 9 (no doubt whilst my family sleep in the car).
We are visiting in August and I will have my wife and 2 daughters of 19 & 13 with me. My eldest is going to University to study politics in September and so I hope my itinery will nave something for all of us.
Any thoughts on the parking and what we want to see would be welcome and if there is any must see I have missed.
