Its been quite a while since we’ve been on a real family trip. We’ve done long weekends here and there, but nothing as exciting as this upcoming trip I have planned for the end of May to Washington D.C. This will be my son’s first time on an airplane and he is very excited! Washington D.C. might not be your first thought when you are looking for family friendly destinations, but it is truly is a great place to visit! First, many of the attractions and museums are free, which saves you a ton of money. Also, the public transportation system is easy to navigate, affordable and modern & clean. You get the rich history and culture along with the big city trappings, to me that’s the perfect getaway. If you are looking for a Spring break getaway or even a family trip for this summer, check out what Washington D.C. has to offer.
I’m a big planner and I have already started to make plans. So far we have booked our stay at the Embassy Suites-Convention Center and have plans to visit the National Zoo, the National Air & Space Museum, eat at the Hard Rock Cafe and to take the Big Bus Tour.
As I am planning our trip, I am keeping a Pinterest board of ideas of what we want to do and places we want to see, be sure to follow me on Pinterest and check it out. Oh and did I mention that I will be giving away a Washington, D.C. getaway package that includes 2 night hotel stay at the Embassy Suites Convention Center, a gift card to the Hard Rock Cafe and tickets for the Big Bus Tour, so be sure to follow me on Facebook and sign up for my email newsletter to be the first to know the details.
