Fun Fact: The Washington Monument towers a breathtaking 555 feet in the air, however George Washington himself was actually much, much shorter…


The last time I visited Washington, DC, I was probably about six and my most memorable moments were almost getting hit by a cab and flying a toy helicopter that I had gotten from the gift shop at the National Air & Space Museum.

This time around, we didn’t have enough time to make it to that particular branch of the Smithsonian, but then again, on the upside we didn’t end up getting almost hit by any taxi cabs, either!  Still had a lot of fun, though, between wandering another awesome museum and also walking the surprisingly long distance between the landmark you see above and the Lincoln Memorial at the other end of the National Mall.

Spoiler: There’s a reason why Lincoln is sitting down in his memorial!

More capital-related fun over the weekend, and don’t forget, time is running short to get your own piece of this amazing road trip book tour spectacular…  Why not order today and lock in your special gift before I get home and collapse in sheer exhaustion?!
