Hi. My boys are die-hard Civil War (Lincoln) buffs (ages 10 & 12). This is a vacation is just for them! We will be staying in Frederick the week of June 29 - July 5th. We plan on going to DC Mon, Tues, Wed and no real plans for Thurs. Is that enough time to see DC? What would be the best way to get to DC? We are driving to Frederick from Illinois and didn't know if we should drive there and try to park in/around DC or take another mode of transportation????
Also, we plan on going to Gettysburg on Friday, July 4th to see the reinactment in the am. Where would be a good place to see fireworks? I am not opposed to traveling back to DC area to do so. I just want this to be a great trip for my boys!!
Thank you for all your help!!
