          Located just 2 blocks north of the White House at 16th and K streets, the Capital Hilton was completed in 1943 and is considered part of the Historic Hotels in America by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. We enjoyed our stay here. The amenities are very nice.

          Very good hotel. Centrally located, good wifi, good gym, friendly staff. Breakfast menu could use daily change. It was the same food every morning.

          I arrived at 330pm on a Friday afternoon and they couldn't check me in until 4pm. The staff there are militant to the rules for no particular reason. There isn't even free wifi for goodness sacks. I wouldn't stay there again.

          On our final day of the tour we visited as many museums as our feet could take. First off was the National Museum of Natural History. This wonderful museum contains a wide variety of artifacts, from the Hope Diamond to fossilized dinosaur poop! The dinosaur bones were pretty amazing but the gorgeous gemstones were my favorites. Our next stop was …

          We spent Saturday morning in Philadelphia visiting icons of our nation's beginnings. The Independence Visitor's Center houses the Liberty Bell. I've actually learned more about it since our return. It's made of bronze and weighed 2080 pounds when made. The inscription taken from Leviticus reads, "Proclaim Liberty Throughout All the Land Unto All …

          Our day in Washington began with a tour of Arlington National Cemetery on September 11, 15 years after the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon. In fact the tour started just a few minutes before 9:00 a.m. Flags were at half staff and we had a moment of silence per President Obama's request. Our local guide, Michelle, was dynamic, …

          ... it was all good and we slept like babies.

          After a quick bagel-breakfast in the motel on Wednesday morning, we continued our journey East, towards the Niagara Falls. After a stop at the mechanic to fix our GPS, we flew over the highways and arrived in Buffalo in the afternoon. It is impossible to describe the overwhelming effect the Niagara falls have on you as you stand there and watch an incredible amount of water fall down with such great force that you can only gasp at the ...

          ... We went instead to look at the Post Office Tower. It's free and you can go to the top and take in a view of the city. We had these amazing bagels for lunch!! I know - it's becoming an addiction. I also had some time for a quick shop before going back for the kids. (That wasn't planned at all! ;)) You've got to love Zara and H&M - great clothes & great prices. The kids came back and as expected weren't too impressed with the museum. We went from there to look at ...
