I've been given another chance to see such a wonderful city! Although, the streets can be often confusing and the traffic and parking.......yikes! Yet, it thrives with history of our past beginnings. You have to spend probably weeks to be able to see everything. I chatted with one of the many wonderful park rangers here who were so helpful and full a information, said people get here and think they are going to see everything in one day......hahahahaha! We both stood there and had a chuckle over that. Remember in each memorial there are Park Rangers, bathrooms, gift shops and lost of helpful brocures.
Washington DC was a dream of Pierre Charles L'Enfants urban planning to design it like Europe's neoclassical landscape Versailles design. Each building had a purpose for where it was place, but none more import was where the "Presidents House" was place to overlook the Potomac River and to have all the different braches of government buildings separate, but connected.
I suggest to purchase a ticket with one of the many tours they have going all day long. Your able to get on and off at different points of interest and tour on your own if you wish.
I recommend you check Paul's, Dee's & JR's Washington DC pages, it has some of the most fabulous photographs, information and such keen details in VT! bct341, Deecat Ewingjr98
What a beautiful memorial. Some wonderful picture taking opportunities here. Very refreshing to sit with the feet in the fountain to cool off. A truely wonderful memorial to our heros of WW II.
If you visit D.C. you must visit Arlington Cemetery and be sure to observe the changing of the guard. It is one of the most impressive events I have ever observed. They do ask to be very quiet while in attendance.
- Pros:Lots to see and do here.....yay!
- Cons:Traffic and parking......yikes!
- In a nutshell:Make sure to give yourself plenty time and days to see!
