First off, one day in Washington DC is not near enough time to see everything. But that was all the time we had so we made the best of it. We took the Metro to the National Mall. Our first stop was the Lincoln Memorial. Then it was onto the Korean War Memorial, The Vietnam War Memorial, The Word War II Memorial, The Washington Monument, The Air and Space Museum, The Capital, and finally, the Museum of Natural History. The kids were worn out and so were mom and dad! You can see all our pictures here.
