Last Thursday we headed to DC for a long weekend. We were expecting a really busy weekend. But when we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised to find out that everything we thought was wrong. The people were friendly, the lines were nonexistant, and we had such a great trip.
We stayed at the Dupont Circle Hotel, and really loved it. Dupont is the perfect area of town to stay if you don't want to be right downtown, but still want easy access to the metro.
We were able to see most of the major sites in DC, but we spent most of our time walking around and enjoying a new city.
Up until this past weekend, I had never stepped foot into a metro. So it was so weird when Kyle told me it was deep underground (we got the hang of it quickly and realized it is the best way to travel).
On the fourth, we hiked down to The Lincoln Memorial to see some fireworks. We were told the memorial is best at night, and I truly believe it now. It was a truly amazing sight to see. Fireworks going off in DC is something you should do atleast once in your life.
I stood at Lincoln's feet for a long time. Just thinking about this great country. I was so humbled watching all of the people around me feel pride for our country. That night was one I will never forget.
We love you DC, and can't wait to come and explore some more! Thank you for your warm welcome, and your beautiful weather.
