Wow that's pretty cool. Yeah the Vietnam one was quite small, considering the effort expended and lives lost. It's almost like they don't want to draw too much attention to it.And I am sure your GF knew more about the city than I do, so you got a good local feel
I love how leafy and treey DC
I went to Arlington the minute it opened on a weekday, so had the place almost to myself
I saw a couple of funeral processions, which was moving
And I loved the view of DC up on the hill where Arlington House is
My favorite monument was the Korean War monument, just stunning to me...........I didn't even know about it, just came upon it
I was very disappointed in the Vietnam Memorial, which I seeked out.................
I am pretty fortunate in that I stay at the JW Marriott and work pays for it when I go
We sponsor an event at The Washington Hotel that you can see the snipers on the roof of the White House from the outdoor patio
Also, the White House seems so small in person
There was a lot of stuff I didn't get to see. Like any of the museums, but I'm sure we'll be back. The exorcist house was cool. I love my horror movies. I stayed most of the time over by the wharf which was nice, but looking back I think I prefer DuPont circle. I really love the architecture of all those buildings in that area and along M street.
