Hi all. We're 3 West Texans who want to tour the D.C. area after Christmas. We realize the trip will be weather-challenging, but would like any tips on what type of day trips anyone would suggest in and around D.C. We plan on doing all the monuments, memorials, etc. but is this feasible in a Tahoe, or is it best to park and ride the trolleys around town? We're driving cross country to see family and friends and this is my son's "dream trip." He's a history buff. Also, should we stay outside D.C. or in town at a hotel? Any ideas/suggestions/tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
