Washington DC Day 1

July 7, 2013

The Washington DC trip started off with two days on the Big Bus Tours.  It was a great view to see the city from the top of the double decker buses.  The company had numerous buses running different routes all over the area.  We spent the days hoping off one, visiting the area, then jumping on another one and heading to a different landmark.  The tours were equipped with earphones describing what was around you or a microphone tour guide discussing the history surrounding us.  This tour was probably the best money we spent on the entire trip.  We got to see almost everything and then knew what we wanted to go investigate more.  I thoroughly enjoyed the tour guides and all the tid bits they added as we rolled through the city.
