So we're going to be in Washington DC over the 4th of July weekend, and I'm sure there's special stuff to do on the 4th, but what? Anyone who lives there want to give some advice? (Or are you sick of all the damn tourists? ) I know my family is dead set on seeing the fireworks display at the Washington Monument that night, but I bet there will be a metric s**tton of people there and it will be impossible to get in? Too bad we couldn't smuggle fireworks through airport security, we bought a ton last year but got rained out, we could have our own fireworks display in the hotel parking lot Thanks!
