Washington DC: The Ultimate One Day Tour of My Town

Recommended Posts

Mgcrunch, Thanks for the site seeing. My 50 years on the Md. side (montgomery cnty.) I've been to and seen these wonderful sites. Just Awesome. But have they added a new wing to the Air and Space Museum? I haven't been there in five years but that looks like the site out at Dulles.

You're right, great eye! I Googled pics for Air and Space, used whatever came up. There's no Blackbird in DC. Definitely the Dulles location.

Pleasure.

If you are by The White House during business hours [and if you enjoy NC cigars] check out Drapers. Historic cigar shop.

Morton's is also a nice place to have a steak and a cigar.

Truth be told, I don't travel much in the DMV [DC, Maryland, Virginia area.] 

Will you be renting a car? This opens up options.

The few tidbits I do know:

  • the water taxi is enjoyable. Consider taking it to Old Town Alexandria - nice place to walk around, shop, music [jazz/live place that allows cigars], dinner, etc. 
  • MGM Casino is all the rage. Not sure if the lines have died down yet
  • The Awakening [giant iron sculpture] was moved from DC to National Harbor few years back. Check that out.
  • Ferris wheel - if that's your thing

@Nguneer or @Mahstah may be of better guidance!

Don't think I have the time. Back on a plane in a couple hours and off for work the rest of the week.

Looks like an older photo of the Mall location.  You can see Jefferson Drive out the windows and the Milestones of Flight Hall is the Entrance to the Air and Space building .  Bell X-1 is located elsewhere now (over by the

Only been there a couple of times, Rosa Mexicana and the Walrus w/you.  Sorry I can't be of any help.  It is close to the casino but not much else in the way of DC.

Monuments at night is great. I park by Einstein and take the pup for a cruise on the mall pretty frequently. Don;t have to deal with as many tourists that way. It's nice.
