The sun beamed as we headed to historical Georgetown, about a 15 minute drive from our hotel. We walked along Main Street, Wisconsin Avenue and Prospect Street towards Georgetown University. The quaint streets and boutique shopping lured in tourists especially at Georgetown Cupcake, as they lined up like ants outside and around the street.
The Halloween decorations near the university really impressed the kids and we dawdled along soaking up the sunshine while admiring the impressive university buildings.
After lunch at Five Guys, we headed back to the hotel to drop off James and Harriet while I took the older kids down to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. It was so inspiring to see the kids ask questions and take their own photos of the exhibits. It wasn’t too crowded and we had hours to roam the various floors at a leisurely pace.
The blue skies lured us outside and we walked through the park, eating icy poles and enjoying our last day in the nation’s capital. We then rode the Carousel on the National Mall, the only carousel in Washington DC. Built in 1947, it has appeared in several movies and the kids loved it so much that I let them ride it twice.
We walked back to the hotel and the kids were absolutely exhausted and fell into bed early. We zipped up the suitcases completely satisfied with our 6 days in DC.
We stayed at the Sofitel Washington DC.
We used Uber to get around the city.
We ate at Shack Shake, Five Guys and District Taco.
