Washington D.C.

I’m not that good at writing, so I’ll keep it to bulleted points with ratings and short notes where applicable.

Background: This was a short 2 day trip over Chol Hamoed Pesach 2018.

Hotel:
•   Washington Marriott Wardman Park
  • This is not very close to downtown, but trains are easy and accessible. We made our plans while driving to DC, so we couldn’t really afford to be picky.

Method of Transport:
•   Subway System
  • While we drove to DC from NY and had our car on hand, it was easier to leave it parked at the hotel all day and use the subway system to get around

Food:
•   Char Bar- 3/5
  • Being that it was Pesach there were limited options available

Activities:
•   We purchased a sightseeing pass, which lowered our costs
•   Capital Tour- 4/5
•   White House- 3/5
•   Washington Monument- 2/5
•   Madame Tussauds- 3/5
•   Smithsonian Air and Space Museum- 4/5
  • We wasted 3 hours standing in line, only to find out that there were 2 lines open, and one of them had less than a 10-minute wait…
•   Hop On Hop Off Bus- 3/5
•   Spy Museum- 2/5
  • This was my second time to the museum, which I also visited on a prior trip. I’m not sure if that’s what did it in, but I found it to be boring and technical. I could barely keep my eyes focused on anything.

Here are some things I visited on a prior trip:
•   Holocaust Museum- 4/5
•   Newseum- 3/5
