    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....

    ...or u can go to Ultra Bar where they have special discount for under 21...u can get in but u cant drink????:confused:
    and ...no dnb in DC, maybe in MD or VA but its miles away....and buses are cheap downtown about $1.35 one way and u get a transfer ,which allows u to come back 2 hours later on the same route.....
