A week from now I'll be visiting Washington DC with my sister. I've always wanted to see the cherry blossoms so I'm pretty dang excited. I've never thought too much about a bucket list, but after these past two years of seeing my mother-in-law at the end of her life and how quickly things changed for her in terms of her independence, dignity, and overall quality of life, it might not be a bad idea to put something together.
I've been to the DC area many times on job-related trips. Once, my husband and daughter joined me for a few days after my work tasks were completed. Lots to do and see in DC. I love the National Gallery of Art and talk about good timing, there is a special Gauguin exhibit we'll get to explore. So, while I'm fairly familiar with the area and have seen a lot of the attractions, the biggest unknown is how it'll work out travelling with my sis. This is a new one for us.
There are three things I haven't done before that I'd like to this visit:
Take a tour of the White House
Go to Politics & Prose bookstore
Go to the Newseum
Do you have any restaurant, coffeehouse or things to do and see recommendations for us?
