  • Excellent suggestion! And while you're in the neighborhood, stop by the Botanical Gardens (en route from the Capitol Visitors Center to the American Indian Museum). They have miniature replicas of all the famous buildings in DC among the plants. A great place to warm up for a few minutes.

  • Since the last GAC, they've opened the new US Capitol Visitor Center. It's amazing! You can look online to schedule tours of the Capitol Building as well as stop by any time to view the exhibit on the history of the Senate and the House. A great destination for families: http://www.visitthecapitol.gov/
  • The Shakespeare Theater at the Landsberg is playing Richard II and Henry V on alternating nights with one actor playing both lead roles. this is the equivalent of memorizing the entire Comedy of Errors. Great theater and great descriptions of power used and abused.
  • Great tips, Alix. And don't forget the International Spy Museum just a few blocks down from the Convention Center toward the Mall. Super interesting if you enjoy the history of espionage. Great gift shop, too.
