The drive from Florida to Atlanta took us around 5 hours to knock over. Atlanta was the host of the 1996 Olympic Games and boasts a number of quite impressive attractions. We were keen to check it all out. Dave kindly offered for us to stay at his residence while he was away. This meant we gained two new friends, Bo and Rosa.

TravelPod Member ReviewsKellogg Conference Hotel at Gallaudet University Washington DC
It is a fair priced hotel but there are a lot of extra fees, such as overnight parking ($18) and continental breakfast ($9). The campus is really beautiful and historical. It is fenced in and guarded so I feel safe here.
