Day 3 - Feet on the Ground in DC
Day three brought us to one of my favorite cities, Washington DC. We started our morning in Alexandria and took the oh-so-convenient Metro into town (why can't Atlanta have decent mass transit?). We had a delicious brunch at Clyde's (touristy I know, but their food and atmosphere is great) and then headed over to the Mall where we partook in the Natural History Museum and American History Museum. Next, we hoofed it over to the White House and Corcoran, and then over to Arlington where we watched the touching ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and paid our respects to JFK and Jackie O. After a night-cap of Oyster's at Hanks in Alexandria and a few glasses of vino, we were off to bed and ready for our next adventure.
