hey i'm going to DC this weekend and i'm looking for cool things to do. if you guys have any tips on stuff to do.
Hagan_F saidOh yes! I agree with B71115, Arlington Cemetary is a must. The changing of the guard at that Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers, at the top of every hour, is quite impressive along with all the sites he mentioned including Robert E. Lee's home at the very top of the hill. If you will be there long enough to drive the 30-45 minutes (depending on traffic and time of day) down to George Washington's home, I would say that it is a must as well!
You have art galleries...The National Gallery of Art (white dome...with the only Leonardo da Vinci painting in western hemisphere: Genivera d'Benci), Freer Gallery of Oriental Art (with the Peacock Room), the Asia and Africa museums are full of art and artifacts.
