Have read a whole lot of posts & realized that going to DC during the Fall festivals will be very expensive & crowded. Would like to avoid that, but also want to enjoy the colors. Can anyone suggest a better time to go in October? We will be traveling with 3 yr old & 5 yr old. We are looking for a relaxing 2-3 days in DC. Budget is abt 120/nt. Looking for a place in fish creek or ephraim, close to the peninsula park. Thanks!
