Washington DC vacations...You want to have fun yet you don't want to put your mind on idle the whole trip either. You want your kids to learn something, not just ride roller coasters and eat cotton candy. And you don't want to max out all your credit cards to do it.

You may be thinking that's impossible. There's no one place to go that can possibly offer all that. Actually, there's one - Washington DC!

Washington DC Vacations - Things to Do

From the Capitol to the White House to the Supreme Court to the Smithsonian there's all kinds of ways to stimulate your mind and help your kids learn things the could never learn in a classroom. From the National Zoo to the International Spy Museum there are more fun things for both adults and children to do than it seems possible to pack into just one city.

First stop, the National Mall. You won't find a Gap or an overpriced cookie store in this Mall. This is where all of Washington's famous monuments reside such The Washington Monument, The Lincoln Memorial and The Vietnam Veteran's Memorial.

Not to mention the nearby Smithsonian Institute. You could spend weeks just browsing through it's various museums. I almost forgot the best part. Most of this stuff you can see for free. Gratis. No charge. Complimentary. In other words, you ain't gotta pay nothing.

For after dark fun you can see a show at the Kennedy Center, check out some basketball, hockey, or music at the MCI Center, or dance the night away at one or more of Washington's many sizzling nightspots.

Washington DC restaurants
For a romantic dinner, try the restaurant at the Jefferson Hotel. If the atmosphere at this cozy spot doesn't quicken your heartbeat, contact a doctor immediately. Something is seriously wrong. On the other hand, if it's a party you want, the Cafe Atlantico is the place to be. If you're not in a celebratory mood when you get there, you soon will be. The place just has that effect on people.
