I'm planning on visiting the East Coast this July -- the area roughly from Boston to Washington, DC. I don't really have a set plan yet, aside from visiting NYC for a couple of days (up to a week), hopefully visiting Boston for a few days, and hanging out along the Maryland/DC border for a conference. Travel tips/suggestions? [more inside]
(Local attractions filter): Washington, DC, for teenagers. [more inside]
I'll be attending a convention the second weekend of February at the Gaylord National Hotel & Convention Center
which appears to be in the center of a shopping complex called National Harbor
. Can our locals recommend anything in the area? [more inside]
What can a visiting geek do in Washington DC other than the obvious museums and attractions? I am in town from Oct 4 to the 15th. [more inside]
Recommendations of what to see/do when visiting Washington D.C.? We're going next week, and have a list of a few touristy spots to visit, but I'd like to see what Mefites recommend. Locals advice also highly appreciated, i.e. dance clubs and restaurants to visit. Finally, all over the web it says you must arrange a White House tour with one of your congressional representatives. We can't do that (group of two), someone said we can join a tour at a kiosk. Anyone agree with this? Please be kind if the question has been posted before, I searched.
