I read the Newseum is a must, and it looks pretty cool. I'd like a Botanic Garden trip too, to get some fresh air. Anything else?

I love Dc. It's gorgeous. When I was there like 6 or so years ago, we took a picnic and it was wonderful. I don't even think we officially did anything.

Oh thanks! Is Eli's Glatt? I tried finding out, but it didn't say so.

I have no idea about this place, but nowadays MOST (not ALL) kosher meat is glatt because it's not that hard to get rid of non-glatt.

I second the spy museum.

What age?


Newseum is pretty cool if you're into news, but unlike most other DC museums, you have to pay admission. Obviously there are dozens of museums on the Mall within walking distance of each other, I don't know what you're into.

Is this a new place, I don't think I've heard/seen it?

Thanks for the tips. Maybe we'll take sandwiches along and spend the first half of the day in areas where we can take food, and after lunch head to museums. I don't want to see the Holocaust museum, but definitely putting the botanical gardens on my list (and i'd love the chocolate talk, so i'll follow up on that.)

In general, when I go to such places, we usually do a later breakfast, head out and then early dinner, that way we don't have to shlep food. (obviously it depends on schedule, but even Pesach time, we did that when it was possible because draggin matzah, tuna, etc. gets to be a shlep.)

The Spy Museum is not paid for with our tax dollars, and it's pretty costly. The Smithsonian is free, and so is the Zoo.

FTR, if you're willing to drive, you can see mad Civil War stuff. I had a cousin who was into such things, and we drove plenty to find places that he was interested in. You don't have to stick to the Revolutionary War relics.

What about kosher food? Max's?


Get the shwarma or falafel! They make their own fermented condiments there. Yum!

ETA: I think there's a new restaurant in the DC JCC


Yes (it's in the lobby of the JCC). There's also a hip veggie falafel place called Moaz very close to Eli's, though some people don't like the hashgacha there.

But hands down the best food is in Pita Hut, out in Rockville.

Holocaust Museum carries wrapped kosher sandwiches in the cafeteria -- helpful if you're on the Mall and need a place to eat, as the closest kosher restaurant is in Dupont which is far away. I'm assuming you can just walk in from the street and go to the cafeteria inside, I don't think you need to go through the exhibits if all you want is a sandwich.

There are many civil war battlefields close to DC.

Frederiksburg/Chancellorsville/Wilderness & Spotsylvania -about 60 miles away
Manassas - about 35 miles away
Monocacy -about 40 miles away
Antietam- about 70 miles away
Gettysburg- about 85 miles away
