I’ve been meaning to visit Washington DC with my kids for a while. It’s such an easy trip, it makes a great last minute getaway. And with lots of holiday festivities and cheer, you could even pop down for an impromptu vacation over the upcoming break. Our family visited DC on a recent weekend to check out our nation’s capital and preview some of the holiday happenings.
The great thing about Washington DC is so many of the things to do there are free from the museums to these great holiday happenings. The only things we paid for on our entire trip were our meals and lodgings. Keep in mind, free means you don’t need to reserve tickets ahead of time, but it also means you should expect crowds during peak times.
