We took a train to Washington from Albany, NY. It was approximately $160/pp round trip before the AAA discounts. I did not think that was too bad when plane tickets would have been over $300. I like riding on a train, the motion does not make me sick and there is so much to see when on a train.

After walking around the capitol we started down the walk way through the Mall.

|The monument was still closed so we just got to look at the monument which was amazing|

On our walk to dinner we walked by the White House....
After returning to our room we decided we should have brought our pedometers after all the walking we did that night. After dinner we ended up taking the Metro back to the hotel. We got lucky because the hotel was a block from the Metro Station. It was an easy system to learn and we had a map to help us.
I will tell you about Friday in a post tomorrow :)
For those of you that have been to DC what is your favorite spot?
