Two Days in Washington D.C.
The Castle is the original site of the Smithsonian. It is too small to house everything, so there are approximately 16 different buildings. We spent Day One in The Air and Space Museum, Museum of the American Indian, Botanical Gardens, the National Postal Museum and in Union Station. The rest of the day was touring the city on the Old Town Trolley. Day Two we took OTTrolley to the Lincoln Memorial. From there we walked past the Reflecting Pool to the Viet Nam Memorial, on to the WWII Memorial. On the other side of the reflecting pool is the Washington Monument. We continued walking to the Museum of Natural History. From there it was back on OTTrolley and to Union Station.
Day Two, also starting at Union Station, we spent as much time as we could visiting more free sites in DC. This includes more of the Smithsonian Museums and the Presidential Memorials. Old Town Trolley and our feet were our main transportation. The Metro bus/rail system got us to downtown from Cherry Hill RV Park.
