Washington D.C. is the capitol of the United States and home to some of America’s finest architecture, history, and museums.  In Washington D.C. you’ll find the attractions listed below all near the National Mall area.   Note that the National Mall area is HUGE and you can spend several days exploring this and surrounding attractions like the WWII Memorial, Vietnam Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, Smithsonian Institution (allow at least a day and hopefully more to roam this museum – one of the world’s finest).

Bring comfortable shoes and try to use the submay or busses when possible.  Parking is sometimes hard to find around the major attractions, especially in summer.

Free cell phone parking lot (arrival waiting) coming to JFK

Friday, June 1st, 2007

This article is about an innovative JFK Airport plan to provide free parking to those waiting to pick up arriving passengers. Rather than circling the crowded arrival areas you’ll be able to park nearby at no charge and take the cell call from the arriving passenger when they have their bags and pick them up quickly and effectively.

This is a great innovation for any crowded airport, and as a travel tip don’t forget to use your cell phone to streamline the process of arriving at new destinations. By calling your friend/relative at home and keeping them posted about your airline reservations changes and scheduling you can often create a smooth pickup time even with a hectic schedule
