i always loved the air and space museum growing up, but haven’t been in awhile. natural history is awesome as is american history and the newseum. maybe i’m biased because i grew up there, but i think the dc metro system is very easy to navigate so you shouldn’t have any trouble getting around. and hopefully the weather will be nice and you can do a lot of walking. the lincoln memorial and the WWII memorial are not to be missed, no matter how many times you may have seen them in pictures, it’s not the same as being there. oh i also love the national archives but i do not love the line you often have to wait in.

Umm Spy Museum!! There’s a livingsocial deal going on today. You get to see the spy Museum for $9 (instead of $18). I love that museum!

Better cupcakes than Georgetown at Baked and Wired (also in Georgetown) and no lines.

If you like Mexican food you should definitely try to get to Lauriol Plaza. It was always one of my favorite spots when I lived in DC and I always recommend it to friends who are there visiting.

I LOVE the spy museum!  And if you’re going to wander around the monuments, go at night.  It’s so much cooler and less crowded.  WWII is especially nice at night.  I love the Natural and American history museums as well.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Lauriol plaza! It has got to be my favorite restaurant! They have the best seafood enchiladas and mojitos! Check them out on 18th and T street!

I also like the Air and Space Museum…but mostly because they have a flight simulator that for a couple bucks you can get into and use. My Fiance took me there for valentine’s day one year because he knew how much I have always wanted to fly a plane. I thought it was adorable. Smile

The Smithsonians are great!  Definitely go to Arlington national cemetary and the changing of the guard.  Old town Alexandria is fun to wander around in the evening!  (Tyson’s Corner has fun shopping too!)

Hello hive! My husband and I like to travel to a different US city every Memorial Day weekend and this year we chose Washington DC!! 🙂 I’ve been there once for the day while visiting a friend who lived in a suburb of DC…but now that I’m trying to plan a long weekend I’m looking for some fun suggestions for places to stay, eat and see.

Just a little background…my hubby and I LOVE to walk around and explore and are big fans of museums and historical attractions (DC is perfect huh?). We’re also BIG foodies so some great restaurant reccomendations would be wonderful. We prefer funkier boutique type hotels that are tucked away but we also want to be close to all the action.

Thanks in advance! 🙂
