Good afternoon to my colleagues at MR! I'm looking to take a trip near the end of August with my fiance to Cedar Point in Ohio; Hershey, PA (to visit Chocolate World, of course) and Washington DC. Out of these destinations, I've only been to DC as part of a class trip, so I am looking for any money saving advice as well as things to do and see. I'm also looking for places to stay that aren't too expensive and have a fairly low risk of being robbed/car stolen/etc. Outskirts and cities a few miles away are just fine with me if it means money savings, but never having been to these places, I don't know where to look. Places we would like to see in DC: Capitol/Mall Various War Memorials (vietnam, WWII, etc.) National Archives Bureau of Engraving and Printing Smithsonians I've seen information about the Tourmobile that drives around DC to the memorials and things of that nature - has anyone used it and found it a good way to get around? Any other suggestions of cool things to see are welcomed. I'm hoping that others who have lived in or taken trips to these places will be able to help me plan a safe, fun and memorable trip.
