The Moscows Of Nantucket – Was playing at the local Jewish community center in Dupont and it had decent reviews, so we figured we might as well have a look …. turned out to be a better show than I expected.
Where I’ve stayed :
Silver Springs – My uncle and aunt’s Sabbatical apartment residing with a lively Jewish community.
Dupont Cirlce – to get closer to where the action is I stayed with Hilton for 3 days. Was likely to get this for a hotel bid at less than a 100US$ at peak season.
And I do believe this was just barely scratching the surface of what Washington DC has to offer.
My suggested 5 days itinerary :
Day 1 : State Capitol, Library of Congress, Botanical Gardens, and a walk up the DC Mall (White House, Lincoln, etc.)
Day 2 & 5 : Museums are hard to get through unless you’re really patient. Select yourself the more relevant museums for you, and spread those over 2 days. Make sure you have long breaks between the museums, especially the more emotionally demanding ones (Holocaust).
Day 3 : Day trip to Arlington, Mount Vernon. Make a stop at Alexandria.
Day 4 : Chinatown, George Town or any of the many lovely DC neighborhoods. The outdoor Zoo might be a good diversion.
Day 5 : See day 2.
To wrap things up, here are random photos of the beautiful American capital city – Washington DC…
A big thanks to my father who joined me on this wonderful urban trip and made it a very pleasurable experience.
Hope that’s helpful. Any comments, suggestions or other recommendations are very welcome.
