Well…we think they are.
After much (MUCH) discussion and waffling, we have come to the conclusion that the original plan, 2-3 weeks in DC next July, will be the best option for family togetherness, good memories, lots of stuff to do, and so on. (The whole point of the original idea was for all the family members to be together for a big vacation and good memories.)
We would probably book 1 week in the downtown district and one week in a hotel around Reston, because there is so much we want to revisit out that way.
Let us know your thoughts.
