2 additional sites I would highly recommend-1-National Arboretum-the Bonsai garden is phenomenal year round. And if you are lucky enough to be there when the azaleas are in bloom it's amazing. 2- Kenilworth Park and Aquatic Gardens. The surrounding area is pretty beat up but once in the gardens its very nice.

A one hour and fifteen minute performance of music and precision marching, the Evening Parade features "The President's Own" United States Marine Band, "The Commandant's Own" The United States Marine Drum and Bugle Corps, the Marine Corps Color Guard, the Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon, Ceremonial Marchers, and Cpl. Chesty XIV, the official mascot of Marine Barracks Washington.

The ceremony starts at 8:45 p.m., beginning with a concert by the United States Marine Band. The Evening Parade, held every Friday evening during the summer, has become a universal symbol of the professionalism, discipline, and Esprit de Corps of the United States Marines.

Evening of the Parade Information
Guests with reservations are admitted beginning at 7:00 p.m. and should arrive no later than 7:45 p.m. Guests with reservations that arrive after 8:00 p.m. are not guaranteed their reserved seating. There is no charge for admission. At the time the reservation is confirmed, a numbered admission gate is assigned to which guests should report on the evening of the parade. At 8:00 p.m., guests without reservations who are waiting in the General Admission line outside the Main Gate of the Barracks are offered the unclaimed seats.
Got our tickets reserved for Friday May 25th and June 1st.

Just covering a possibility of inclement weather on one of those nights.

I just attended a performance of the Silent Drill Platoon at Camp Pendleton last week.

Never get tired of watching them. Still nothing like the venue of "8 & I" though.

Thank You for the recommendation but we have to leave on April 11th for Iowa on our way to Seattle. Maybe on the way back to Florida in the fall. Leaving for DC on Thursday. Hope the weather allows Sunday arrival????

We arrived a day early today at Cherry Hill Park. Came early due to storm in North Carolina on Saturday and Sunday. Very nice Park with very nice people. We are in space 728 so please drop by and say hi. The weather for the next three days will be high of 46 and lows down to 27 but the snow is nearly gone. Highly recommend the daily Sightseeing Sessions held in the Waterfall building at 4:00pm. Lot of info

We are arriving this coming Saturday and leaving the following Thursday. Will drop by during the week to say Hi. I know exactly which space you are in. We have stayed in that section and maybe even in that same spot in the past.

Regards.

Chuck

Take a day and drive out by Dulles airport to the other Smithsonian museum. It’s a giant hanger with more airplanes and a space shuttle.

Have been at Cherry Hill Park for 9 days now and have enjoyed every minute. We have taken the Metrorail in 7 times now and find it extremely easy. We leave the park around 9am and head down to the College Park Station and pay the $5.20 senior charge on the way out. We keep our Smartrip card funded at around the $25 level. Buy the $2 card when you attend the 4pm orientation session at the park. Highly recommend. We have spent $70 so far for 2 people for the 7 days. We use the parking garage and always seem to be on the third or forth floor with plenty of parking left. Every day we have taken the 30 minute ride into DC and get off at the Archives stop. When coming home you want to be on the Metro by 3:20pm or you will have to push your way on and stand until others have disembarked. We have
Day 1—Walked the National Mall from the Capital to the Lincoln Memorial passing the Washington Monument(closed) and the Reflecting Pool. We the walked up to the White House then back to the Metro Station. Total of about a 6 mile walk
Day 2—Air and Space Museum( finished half) and then took the 5 hour night Bus Tour that runs from 6pm to 11pm. Cherry Hill Park charters it for $50 each and use excellent guides. I rate it 5 stars. Bus was full.
Day 3— Finished the Air and Space Museum
Day 4—Museum of Natural History. Very crowded but we did hit it after the March and during Spring Break
Day 5 and 6– Museum of American History- finished first and second floor and will finish third tomorrow
Day 7– drove the 38 miles to Mount Vernon. Beautiful day and traffic was a little better due to weekend. Glad we went and worth the $19 Senior price.
Day 8— Easter—- stayed at the Oark and tinkered on the RV and watched the constant change of Neighbors
Day 9—today we went to Ford’s Theater for 11:30am Show. Tickets purchased online. We the walked up the block to the National Portrait Gallery. Beautiful interior and easy to get lost.
Tomorrow we will see if we can get tickets to the Bureau of Engraving and finish the Museum of American History. We have the Supreme Court and the Capital Tours both booked by our Congresswoman in Washington State. That will be on Friday with a 11:00 am White House Tour scheduled on Saturday. Also booked by our Congresswoman. Sunday will be a Cherry Hiill Park Guided Day Bus Tour. Last thing scheduled is the Holocaust Museum on Monday and leave for Seattle on Wednesday April 11th. Hope we are not missing much as it took us 48 years of marriage to get here. Also the Ferris Bueller Ferrari is on display on the National Mall through today... nice car

The Holocaust Museum was very moving for us. We really enjoyed the changing of the guard at Arlington.

I highly recommend the night monument tour that leaves from the campground. It’s very moving to be in some of the war monuments after dark.

Hello AC Gypsy. Sorry we missed you. Just got back from a very crowded American History Museum. What space are you in and maybe catch up.
