DC Day Two: Sights

To view my first two posts about my trip to DC, click here and here.

I hope you guys don’t get tired of me posting photos from DC. I can’t believe that it has been almost a month since I was there. As I was sorting through my photos, I see that I have at least two posts worth of photos yet to share.

Today I’m sharing photos from day number two. We woke up early as a group and ventured out into the city after a breakfast at our hotel. We stayed in beautiful part of Alexandria, VA.

In the city, we knew we wanted to visit the Holocaust Museum. We went there early to get tickets and while we waited for our time, Greg and I visited the Freer Gallery of Art . I didn’t take any photos inside, but if you’re ever in DC, it is definitely worth checking out.

The Holocaust Museum is an interesting experience. I would encourage everyone to see it once, but in my opinion, one time is enough. This was at least my third time there and I would be okay with not going again. The museum is extremely powerful and extremely disturbing. It’s a lot to take in. It’s well done.

We ate lunch at the cutest little place that we just sort of stumbled into, but I’m going to share our eats from day two in another post. Get ready!

The rest of our day was spent walking all over the city. We really covered some ground. We visited the White House, and then walked to the Washington Monument, war memorials, and Lincoln Memorial, taking photos all along the way. DC really is a beautiful place and I could not get enough of the views. It’s best to go when the weather is comfortable to be outside so that you can  walk everywhere and just take everything in.

From there we walked to Georgetown, but that’s getting its own post as well!

So, without further ado, here is DC Day Two: Sights:
