Family Fun Friday - Exploring Family Friendly Washington, DC

Sadly, our vacation has come to an end :(

But, we had a FANTASTIC time & enjoyed so many new places & sights.

It was by far my BEST vacation to date!

I previously shared with you these memorable highlights:
(click the links if you missed out on any of the fun!)

Today, I will share some of our final stop with you - Washington, D.C.

There is so much to do in the Nation's Capitol
that we hardly made a dent during our brief time there.

I can't wait to go back because there is just so much more I want to see & do!

What an amazing place!
There is just so much to see, learn and experience here -

from learning about the Wright Brothers



to Amelia Earhart & other Women Flight Pioneers





 From exploring various rockets & missles



to learning about NASA's explorations,



 

 human spaceflight,

 





and commercial aviation.






The Lil Divas even got to play in a hands-on exhibit 
which taught them all about the principles of flight!







Next, we spent a great deal of time exploring

This is another fascinating place -
who can't help but be in awe of dinosaur bones!





Aside from that they have so many other wonderful exhibits
like Ocean Hall





The Hall of Mammals




The Hall of Human Origins





The infamous HOPE Diamond :)


the Lil Diva's favorite exhibit - the Orkin Insect Zoo
was full of lots of hands-on fun








and we even got a sneak peek at a fabulous upcoming exhibit -
Eternal Life in Ancient Egypt




These were definitely family friendly & fun places to visit in DC!
They are free to enter for the whole family
but some certain attractions do cost extra is you would like to experience them.

I have more to share of our Washington, DC experience later so stay tuned........

  5. We live about two hours from D.C. so it is an easy day trip. I haven't been since Little Bit has been born. I am itching to take him. My favorite thing is the National Zoo. It's fantastic. Glad you enjoyed your trip!
