Ez all,

I'm heading to Washington DC for a week next month for a works conference, a few of the days there will be on my own time so I can do a bit of sightseeing.

Can anyone recommend any good places to go, things to see/do and if they know of any good/cheap hotels!

Any info peeps have got would be a great help!!

Nice one!!

Smithsonian museum is the first place I'd go, US equivalent of our Science museum

Federal Mint (where the benjamins come from)

Capitol Hill/Park

There's a good 70's museum too but I can't remember the name....

Just remeber it's one of the murder capitals of the world :rinsed:

i suppose u can go the the white house for a tour and say hi to mac cain :teeth:...
Dupont Circle and Adams Morgan are best areas for bars and food...
M street(Georgetown) is nice, by the River...

i'm sure u can get a room for $100 a night which is pretty good for Dc but Remember 27th of nov...Thanksgiving...might be hard to get hotel around that day...
and u have to b over 21 to drink in this country, always carry an id
even if u look 50 they ll ask u! I have to go thru this bullshit every week....
