Hi. We have only a very short time in Washington DC & want to see the main monuments both during the day & also lit up at night.
We arrive at 11.20 am at Dulles airport & leave the following day at 2.15pm from Ronald Reagan airport.
We are staying at the George Washington University Inn.
We want to also go up to the top of the Washington Monument which I am going to book online but have no idea what time to book it for.
I was thinking of maybe getting the subway as soon as we arrive at the hotel & spending the afternoon walking the mall, Lincoln Memorial, Reflecting pool, White House, Capitol Hill & Washington Memorial.
I'm then thinking of doing a night tour, or trolley night tour to rest our legs.
Would we have time to see all this or would it be best to see maybe the White House or Capitol Hill the next day as we wouldn't have to leave for the airport until about midday.
Any itinerary suggestions would be welcome.
