Washington Day 1

Our first day in DC we did a lot of the standard tourist stuff. We had a good lunch and a great dinner, but those are separate posts. Here is the quick overview of what happened on day one.

  • Washington Monument – Saw Marine  One headed to the White House while waiting to go up.
  • WWII Memorial
  • Lincoln Monument
  • Korean War Memorial
  • Vietnam Veterans Memorial
  • Lunch – Capitol City Brewing
  • Smithsonian Castle
  • American History Museum – including the puffy shirt
  • Arlington National Cemetary and all the normal stuff there – Kennedy graves, tomb of the unknown, Arlington house. I tried to convince Sarah to walk back into the city, but she refused.
  • Dinner – Old Ebbitt Grill

So that’s the first day. Today we’re headed to the zoo, Adams Morgan, and the National Cathedral. Then sushi with a friend of ours from Mizzou.
