So, we're going to be heading out to visit my parents in Washington D.C. at the end of April. To say the kids are excited is an understatement. Neither one has been on an airplane before and I am petrified of flying, despite having flown quite a bit so that aspect should be interesting. My husband may be comforting the three of us.
Here's my question to you. What are absolute "must dos" when in D.C. and the surrounding area? We are obviously looking for family friendly activities as well as some "adult only" options. We will obviously do some of the touristy things, but I would like to hear from those of you who live there or who have visited before what things are worth doing and what things we can afford to skip.
