gettysburg/washington dc/assateague island

With the warm weather all around us early, I have plans to take the DW and kids on a road trip the first week in april. leaving syracuse NY, I'd like to see gettysburg, then washington DC and then off to assateague island...anybody have any tips or favorite "must sees" for these areas...I've already check out the DC posts, that was great info, otherwise I never would have taken the MH near the city.

Two great spots to visit. We liked staying at Artillery Ridge CG in Gettysburg and Cherry Island in DC.

Have fun.

We also stayed at Artillery Ridge (a passport America park if I remember correctly except weekends). The campground provided a pass or a discount for the diorama of the battle field. We purchased a CD of the National Park Battlefield from the Park Service and it gives a self guided tour of the battle field, history, etc. Starts at marker 1 and tells what happened in that area - then tells you to go to marker 2 and tells about that area - and so on. Well worth the $$.

The campgrounds in and around Gettysburg are close to the same in price, so I would look at their websites and make a choice. We stayed at Drummer Boy and it was fine though very large. The campground in the DC area that is mentioned above is really the best choice and is actually Cherry Hill. Folks in the office are wonderful with advice about visiting the city. Metro bus comes regularly right to the campground so that you can use public transportation. You really don't want to try to park in DC.

I am doing the same trip, in reverse order. I have reserved at the same campgrounds, starting at the end of May and into June. Two weeks at Cherry Hill, and a week at Artillery Ridge.

One of the things that caught my eye with Artillery Ridge is the horseback tour of the battleground, which sounds like a lot of fun.

I look forward to hearing your impressions, as I'll be close behind!
