Is there anything fun to do in Washington DC? My husband wants to drive down there for a long weekend, it's about a 8 hour drive.

To me just seeing the capitol and the white house isn't a big deal, is there anything else to do. My kids are ages 8, 14 and 17.

  • There are Museums and zoos and lots of shops!!! And if you go as far as Washington Dc you should go a little further to Baltimore MD and go to the Aquarium...that IS amazing!!
