Washington D.C. is one of our most visited locations. Mainly because it is full of history, and amazing sights. In addition, it is a relatively low-cost vacation destination. All of the museums and monuments are free to visit. In addition, there always seems to be something exciting going on in the nation’s Capital. Of curse, it helps that it is only a day’s drive for us.
