We are planning an 8-9 day trip to Washington DC September 12th. I have a couple of questions.
1. Do you recommend also including a drive down to Colonial Williamsburg? Would one day be long enough to see the highlights if so?
2. This is our list of possible places/sites to visit. How would you group them and do you have opinions on whether or not they are worth the time?
Smithsonian (not sure which sections of Smithsonian to spend most time?)
National Air and Space Museum
National Museum of the American Indian
Arlington National Cemetery
Manasses or Gettysburg (which one or both?)
National Archives ?
-Vietnam Veterans Memorial
International Spy Museum (is this worth time?))
The Kennedy Center 's Millennium Stage (if we see an interesting show offered one evening)
Georgetown and the Washington National Cathedral
Other cities in which we may have interest?? -
Rappahannock River and/or 211-acre recreation area on both sides of the Rappahannock
