Like so many of you, our March - June travel plans required some 'rearranging', to say the least. Our first trip, to Washington D.C., included tours of the White House, Library of Congress, the State Capitol and decent seats for the annual Cherry Blossom Parade. Since I won't be able to give you a full report until (hopefully) next year, I found links that get you up close and personal to our Nation's Capitol.
Take a quick tour of the White House here. The narration sounds like it was put together by a third grader, (my apologies to all third graders), but it's a good look inside.
This quick AARP video of the largest library in the World, the Library of Congress, captures its magnificence in just under 3 minutes. On the same site are short videos of other spectacular libraries from around the world.
There are 17 museums in Washington D.C that make up the Smithsonian. Virtual tours include: Natural History Museum, National Air and Space (this one is exceptional), and Museum of American History. The American History Museum link will take you to the Museum's web page where you can spend literally hours browsing through its interesting exhibits. If you have middle or high schoolers, I found an interesting Field Trip tour (22 min) with interesting stories and quiz questions to help them along.
And those Cherry Blossoms we didn't see, well here they are. Photo from Abilitiesnetwork.com
