So Much to Do in Washington DC

- Meghan

Tomorrow I will be embarking on another adventure. Last week I visited Canada’s capital, Ottawa, and this week I will be taking on the U.S. capital, Washington DC.

Before last fall I had only been to Washington DC once on a school field trip. We tried to cram in so much sightseeing in one day that it is hard to remember what we did end up seeing. A few things we visited were the Lincoln Memorial, the Korean War Memorial, the back of the White House (I wish we had taken a tour of the White House, I’ve always wanted to do that! Has anybody taken one, is it worth it?) and we took a trip out to Arlington National Cemetery. In the fall my sister moved to Washington DC and I’ve gone to visit her quite a few times since then. I never thought I would go from being to DC once to going there once or twice a month.

I’ve become accustomed to walking past the White House almost everyday when I stay with my sister but I still get a little excited when I see it. The Smithsonian museums are great too since they are free of charge. You can go in one for a little while and then just head down to another one next door. My favorite so far is the Natural History Museum. They have this huge room dedicated to marine life, with a huge whale hanging from the ceiling. My niece’s favorite activity there is to watch the aquarium filled with colorful tropical fish. The Smithsonian is actually in the process of building a new museum to join the many that already exist: The National Museum of African American History and Culture. When I was in DC last, the Smithsonian castle had an exhibit showing possible architectural designs of the future building. All of the designs were very well done. I’m looking forward to seeing which one they decide to use!

I’m looking forward to this next trip to Washington DC. There’s so much to do and see, one can never be bored!
