We will be in Washington August 15-18 with my Family (wife and Teenage boys 19,17,15). We are staying at the Homewood Suites by Hilton ( on Massachusetts Ave).
It looks to be walking distance to many attractions but that can be deceiving looking at a map. We have a tour set up at the Capital for the 16th @10:30 am and then then plan to walk the length of the Mall after that including a visit to the Air and Space Museum. Is that too much for 1 day?
I tried to book the Washington Monument but no tickets available. Any other way to get tickets?
Do you think it would be too far to walk the to the Capitol building from the Hotel or should be take a taxi/Transit?
At Night we want to visit the Kennedy Center and either catch the Lion King or Shear Madness. Would it make more sense to take transit or a cab to the Kennedy Center?
Also thinking about the Spy Museum and the Ford theater
Anyone have any other night activities suitable for teenagers? Also, any dining recommendations near the hotel?
Would appreciate any insights.
