When you're a hop and a skip from Washington, DC you should probably just go. That's what we did when visiting New York recently. My friend, Claudia and I decided to hop the train and make the trip to Washington since we've never been before. I'm so glad we did, we were greeted with beautiful weather and scenery.
Every place looked like a postcard. The highlight for me was visiting the historical sights and seeing the White House. Especially since Obama is the president! If you visit make sure that you use the Capital Bikeshare program. It makes traveling so much more fun when you can take in the sites by bike.
I had a wonderful time during my visit to Washington, DC and traveling by bicycle. On a side note, I did cartwheels around the Lincoln Memorial, if you visit, make sure you do too.
