Good morning we are here in Washington DC
We have some great trips to help you this explore this city on a budget and make it easy.
First tip; Where to park for free within a half mile of the National Mall. Hanes Point Park is located on a Peninsula just off where the Jefferson Memorial is;
It is literally a half mile from the National Mall. Offers free parking for vehicles and small RVs and you can easily hop on your bike and ride the sidewalk and the trails right in to the National Mall.
You have easy access to all the monuments and there is bike lock locations throughout DC. DC is actually a very bike friendly community. You are able to ride right up to the monuments, the capitol and many locations throughout the city.
You might say “hey but if I ride bike I am going to get all sweaty” Guess what if you are walking around DC in the summer you are going to get sweaty anyways.
On a bike you have access to all these great areas and all it takes is a spin of the pedals. So next time you are in DC bring a bike along.
So you are in DC you got the kids and they are driving you nuts we found something that is fun, inexpensive, and really cool here at Burke Lake Campground.
Located in the trees not far from DC this park provides many entertainments for kids and adults alike.
They have a playground, mini-golf, merry go round, ice cream stand, and a little train set.
