Posted on 04/16/2019 6:41:26 AM PDT by NotchJohnson
I am in DC right now with the family. Not my choice of vacations as I detest the federal government. Personally Id rather be drinking near the ocean instead of walking miles standing in lines and dodging thousands of tourists. Anyways, we went to the air and space museum and the holocaust museum. The nazi exhibit were the security guards that scanned you. What else is a good experience? We are here just two more days. I would never live here, prices are high, woman are ugly and evidently it is a bastion for gay men.
American History Museum. The NRA museum.
I was there years ago, when our son was in Walter Reed for a couple years. We went to an aquarium, that was nice. Also if you get out of DC a little bit, there is the Marine Corps Museum (free parking and admission) by Triangle/Quantico.
I used to love the National Cathedral and the grounds, but in good Episcopalian fashion, their self-righteous and pretentious “acceptance” of homosexuality has morphed into constant worship.
Museum of the Bible is there. I haven’t been there yet, but many recommend it.
If you have a vehicle, drive down to Quantico, VA (against traffic in the morning, return against traffic in the afternoon) and go to the National Museum of the Marine Corps. Its Free, and its freakin awesome. https://www.usmcmuseum.com/
If you’re basically stuck downtown, one of my favorites is Ford’s Theatre. Its not free but its great history and the museum there about the attempt to assasinate Linocln is super cool. https://www.fords.org/
If you enjoyed the Air and Space museum, and have vehicle, the Air and Space Museum annex out by Dulles is most excellent with a Space Shuttle and an SR71 Blackbird https://airandspace.si.edu/udvar-hazy-center
The Third Reich had lasers..?
I'm missing something.
LOL! Welcome to "Just About Every Big American City." :)
I went to “The Wall” to visit with old friends long gone...
National Cemetery, Iwo Jima Memorial, Custis-Lee mansion, Tomb Of The Unknown Soldier. One of the lesser viewed but most moving parts is the vast area where the Civil War unknowen are buried.
The Wall, WWII monument (really any of the monuments on the Mall), Smithsonian, National Cathedral — there is so much to do, much of it free.
All true. Used to live there.
If you’re gadget oriented, try the international Spy Museum (a private business, not U.S. run.)
go eat lunch at Nick’s riverside grille!!! Or Tony and Joes.
2.8% transexuals in DC. For perspective, perverted Hawaii is .78% and California is .76%.
My husband and I were in DC during Zero’s reign of Liberalism and all we heard were police sirens 24/7. I thought the city was filthy and it was embarrassing that the US capitol wasn’t kept clean.
The highlight of our time in DC was visiting Arlington National Cemetery and the Air and Space Museum.
The Lincoln and Jefferson memorials are awesome and free. Sitting on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial at sunrise is a wonderful experience on Easter Sunday or any day.Take a Cherry Blossom cruise from Georgetown down to Alexandria or MT Vernon, better yet, do the night monument cruise when the monuments are lighted. Visit the Vietnam Wall, go to the changing of the guard at Arlington. The White House requires advance tickets - but the White House visitor center is a few blocks away and has historic films and some neat stuff.
You sound like Harry Reid, complaining about “ugly women”
I’m sure you are quite a catch.
Passed that coming north
DC 8.9% homo, California 4.9%.
DC, the biggest LGBT-EIEIO place in the nation.
Visit the Paul Reed Smith Guitar factory in Stevensville MD. Call for a reservation for the tour. See craftsmanship and art before your eyes
