Exploration in Washington, D.C. was brilliant. We stayed three nights in Baltimore, Maryland and devoted two days to walking and gray-lining around D.C. (The Holocaust Museum is a must-see.) All the monuments were fantastic. Our first day, we found a grayline desk and presented our Holland America/Gray Line of Alaska photo IDs and were able to talk our way into three free Hop-on Hop-off double decker open air narrated sightseeing bus tours that were good for two days and worth $35 per ticket.
The second day we were special guests invited into the White House to have some tea with President Obama and the first lady. They are a wonderful couple.
We stayed with Gatsby's cousin Laura in Baltimore. Her and her roommates put up with us for three nights; they were lovely. Three mornings in a row Laura bought us fresh muffins and bagels...delicious. Thanks for the accomodations.
Here is some rando clips of D.C. exploration:
