Washington D.C.


While we were visiting family in Fredericksburg, Virginia and camping at Lake Anna State Park, we took a day and traveled to Washington D.C. to explore the sites. We rode the Virginia Railway Express to L’Enfant Station and walked a couple blocks to the mall.Washington DC (1)

To the right we could see the Capitol Building and to the left was the Washington Monument.

It was a long day and we walked all day long, but it was something I will never forget. There is so much history in one place. You can see our route below.
