Autos of beauty
If possible every citizen of the USA should make a trip to Washington DC. Tours of the White House are available. Sherry took her sister’s family thru the White house and the US Mint, once on their visit with us. I missed both those points of interest. Our family visitors did not get a hotel room; our families have always made room for visitors to stay. WE talked until wee hours and then folks found a place to sleep. Couch, chairs or pallets on the floor we could handle it. LOL
Really the Smithsonian’s alone are worth the trip. We visited them all. We also liked the wax museum of DC. You can walk thru the capitol buildings and see the monuments along the National Mall and you need to climb the Washington monument if you can. The reflection pool is grand itself.
Of course the USMC memorial of the raising the Flag over Iwo Jima bordering the Arlington Nat’l Cemetery was to me, a must.
The Lincoln Memorial was breath taking every time I saw it. We citizens really do love this country, with all its warts and problems.
After visiting many countries, this is my home. Therefore no one place on earth that I have seen, beckons me, COME. No place other than the USA would I be willing to go and live. Do I like everything about it? Nope, the positives outweigh the negatives by hundreds of times.
So it you can, squeeze in a tour of our capitol, I guarantee you will at least ENJOY the museums, no cover charge, get something special for your taxes.
