Charleston By Way of DC

Yesterday we left Rhode Island en route to our New Years weekend destination: Charleston, SC!
Traffic was absolutely horrible and turned a 14 hour ride into a 19 hour ride. We got in about 1 am-so late! But the highlight of our trek South was taking a short break and walking around DC.

We found an amazing parking spot right near the monuments and could see the Washington Monument and the Jefferson Memorial across the water.

Zoe also enjoyed seeing the monuments and getting to walk around. She’s quite the traveling pup!

We walked over to the Lincoln Memorial for a photo op.

It was so fun to see the Lincoln Memorial with Zach since he had never been. I also love the view of the Washington Monument from the Lincoln Memorial.

Incredible view!
Our last stop was the Korean War memorial.

I think this is one of the coolest memorials. I love the statues as well as the faces etched into the stone.

After our quick stop in DC we were back on the road to Charleston. The rest of the drive was awful and full of stop and go traffic. The only good thing about the rest of the ride was the Chick Fil-A we ate for supper. We finally arrived in Charleston and had a wonderfully relaxing, low-key day here today!

  1. I love DC, it's so beautiful there, I have only been once, but hope to go back soon!

  2. I haven't been to DC in forever. I really want to visit again. And great photos!
