We made a visit to the Nation's capital for Independence Day 2018.
The trip included the opportunity to visit some fire stations and find some fireboats.
It also included some tourist visits to the Washington monuments, watching fireworks,
going to a Red Sox at Nationals baseball game, and a visit to Arlington National Cemetery.
What a special country we live in.

We checked into a hotel in Alexandria, VA across the Potomac from DC for a few days.

The hotel was close to the "old town" Alexandria Metro stop

Our first experience with the DC Metro was very positive

We took a day to visit the tourist sights in the Nation's capital.
It was very hot and we quickly went from a walking tour to a
narrated trolley tour which was wonderful. 

Nice "White House." Must be someone important living here.

The city was ready for July 4th

A great First Lady

There was a nice monument dedicated to Boy Scouts of America not far from the White House.

The Old Town Trolley was a good way to see DC on a hot day.

Large ones for sure

The Metro system underground is a great way to get around.
