Washington DC - Smithsonian museums

A travel blog entry by culvy


... all of them, so we choose to visit the "big 3". Air and space museum, Natural History Museum and American History Museum. All three were very interesting, great exhibits and LOTS of information. By the end of the day my head was very much overloaded with info! Side note: I still do not like the subway systems in this country. Regardless of how organised I think I am, something stupid happens in our efforts to negotiate this form of ...

... round and saw the Washington Monument at the other end of the National Mall. When I first saw the monument I was a little disappointed as it was all covered up as they are currently repairing it following an earthquake.

Day 4 - DC to Gettysburg

A travel blog entry by jrammon


... the Civil War turned to the Union's favor. After the tour we headed for dinner at a historic Inn & Tavern that also was part of the Underground Railroad. We had a few minutes after dinner to browse the streets of Gettysburg. Many souvenir shops, history book shops and too many ghost tours. This year is the 150th anniversary of the battle and July will be a very busy time in Gettysburg. We arrived at our hotel for the night and got checked in. Tomorrow we drive to New York. Good ...
