NYC-DC Trip: Part 4

Today we walked all over DC. We started out by heading to the National Mall, then saw the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial, and Arlington National Cemetery. From there, we took the subway to the Pentagon which doesn’t offer walk in tours. Then we took the subway back to the Mall area.

We ended up a little lost, but found our way by taking a shortcut through the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum (which we’ll check out in detail tomorrow). The Capitol building was all fenced off, but we were able to find the Supreme Court and get in there. Court wasn’t in session or anything, but it was pretty cool to have a look around. We walked from there all of the way back to our hotel.

After a quick nap we headed back out for dinner. There doesn’t seem to be anything nearby, but we did find the District ChopHouse and Brewery. The food and atmosphere were great. I’d definitely recommend it if you’ll be in DC.
