@Gene is headed to Washington DC later this week, he and I had a quick catch up to chat through our own experiences in past as this will be his third such visit to America's Capitol and I enjoyed a great long weekend myself there with my wife during the summer of 2018.
Some renovations to various monuments and museums have been completed during the last 12 months or so, and Gene's partner, Judy, has never before been! One of the highlights of travel, in my mind, is revisiting an old favourite to share new experiences with loved ones.
But while there are some obvious highlights, there's only so much time; the immense collections of the world-renown Smithsonian museums alone could take a week or more to enjoy. I think Gene will be headed to the Arlington National Cemetery and some military or political highlights - alongside a surprisingly diverse set of dining options.
Items of note include the need for an advanced application when visiting the White House, but what sort of recommendations would you share from your own time in DC?
