Washington D.C.

I just got back from my trip to Washington D.C.! It was an amazing whirlwind adventure, full of fun and history. My friend Emily and I had never been before so we decided to plan our vacation during the Cherry Blossom Festival.

D.C. is definitely a place you have to go many times to get to all the things you would like to see and do. Here's what we got to during our stay:

-American History Museum
-mastering the Metro system
-White House and visitor's center
-Museum of Natural History
-Jefferson Memorial
-International Spy Museum (Operation Spy unit)
-Lincoln Memorial
-Swing dancing to live band at Chevy Chase Ballroom
-Washington D.C. temple
-Washington Memorial
-World War II Memorial
-Smithsonian castle
-becoming pro city-walkers
-Korean War Memorial
-Japanese Festival
-Murder Mystery Play at Kennedy Center
-World War I Memorial
-Sunday chamber music at National Gallery of Art
-Cherry Blossom Festival

It was definitely a full 5 days. Mrrrr
