I am planning a celebration of my father's 80th birthday in Washington DC during the week of July 4th. My kids are 17 and 19 and we will also be with my mom, who just had her hip replaced but is otherwise in good shape, and my husband. I want to be in a special place where we will be comfortable to enjoy the fireworks. I thought a dinner cruise might be the answer, but they require a minimum age of 21. Any ideas?
We are a family of four (two adults, two daughters ages 12 and 4) who are planning a driving trip from Toronto to New York and Washington in the latter half of August. We are looking to stay a week in each place. We are looking to book a place with a kitchen but don't know what areas are safe to book in Washington that are still easily accessbile to monuments etc. Can someone please advise on good areas to consider booking acommodation in Washington? And, if you have suggestions on things to do with kids please share those as well.
it seems to be nearly impossible to find accomodation in Washington DC for a reasonable price in late September so I started to look for a different solution, but i need some advice.
Can anyone recommend a not too expensive place to stay in walking distance to a metro station where it is safe in the evening and where one can get to Downtown Washington quickly?
I've started looking in Arlington near Rosslyn Metro Station and it seems that trains are travelling quite often and are only travelling five minutes to the White House and for about $ 2, but hotel fares are still pretty expensive.
I also found information that some hotels offer shuttle service to the Metro but couldn't find out how this works and how often they are travelling. We only have two days at DC and want to get the most out of our time not spending too much on waiting and train riding.
