We are thinking about taking a trip to DC next month, I hear it's very kid-friendly, free museums, lots of great things to do, and close proximity to beaches if we want a day trip or two. We'll take the train so we don't have to worry about driving around once we're there.
Anyone done this? Looking for a place to stay that will allow us to put the kids in a separate room (as part of a suite or not, I just don't want to go to bed at 8:30 every night), looking for great fun things to do, great places to eat, anything you've got!
I haven't been there since I was a little kid, except for the overnight stay when I went to the MTV Inaugural Ball for Clinton. (I didn't see the city at all that time.)
We have a friend there who can give us an insider's tour of the Capitol Building and stuff, but they haven't had little kids in decades so I'd love some suggestions!
