The Stampin' Up Getaway trip was 3 days but because there is just so much to see and do in DC we decided to stay an extra 2 days.
I have wanted to see the Holocaust Museum for a long time. I knew it would be emotional and tears started before I even got inside the building.
One of the things that made this visit special is the woman we got to talk to. She is 97 years old and a survivor. She told us she experienced medical experiments and was unable to ever have children because of that. She had an amazing spirit and continued to say we need to "just love".
Then we took the Metro out to Arlington Cemetery. The Metro is the way to get around in DC for sure and so easy.
By the time we got to Arlington we opted for their bus tour. Aching feet and sore backs! I loved watching the ceremony with the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. We also saw Kennedy's grave and the Eternal Flame and a few other notable grave sites.
