My family and I planned this trip to follow the Dodgers. Our ultimate goal is to watch a basebal game in every stadium (whether or not the Dodgers are playing). We started off in Washington DC to watch them play the Nationals. Unfortunately we didn’t spend a lot of time there. We were a big group of 10! We stayed in a really nice AirBnB so there was room for all of us. We did have 3 little kids with us (1,3,and 5) but they’re cute. We got a 24 hour hop on-hop off bus pass which was really helpful in getting around town. Nothing is really more than about 5 miles away but there are a lot of one-way streets. We also used Uber a lot to get around.
We hit all the usual stops: White House, Capitol Building, Libraries of Congress. We also went to the Lincoln Memorial, the Jefferson Memorial and the Washington Memorial (Hello Hamilton lyrics!)
The weather was pretty gross. Mostly in the 90’s but it was soooooo humid! Being from Southern California, we had a hard time dealing with that. Our hair was mostly up and we used a lot of make up setting spray so that it didn’t go to waste.
