Not until late June.  THe annual family vaca, four days and five nights.  Please sign in with tips, tricks, and "can't miss" advice.

p.s.  the world famous burg known as Beloit lies squarely in our path, about halfway through the last return leg.  No promises yet (because I'm not going to set up a visit and then welch out to my everlasting dismay and ridicule, not to get too personal but his initials are Kayk).  But I can't see just driving right on by on a weekday and not stopping to check it out.

With all the embassies, and thus restaurants specializing in different cuisines catering to them, try eating at a restaurant specializing in the cuisine of a different country for every meal. Bonus points if it's a country's food you've never tried before.

For eats and drinks and music I like Georgia Brown's a couple of blocks from the White House. It all be near the Southern embassy I do assume.

A Russian place? Wednesday night is "karaoke and flirt night", when you can make a fool of yourself and tell people secrets.

Park the car at hotel and take public transportation.

isn't it 3 days to drive each way? How does 4 days/5 nights work if that is the case? 
Have the mini KKHs design and build a tiny house that you can take with you.

Green. The few miles around the WH are very walkable and pedestrian friendly, the Metro is modern and efficient. I like DC, I could happily there (well, the nicer parts), lots of good eats and drinks and interesting stuff. Food trucks. Although I've not been there since The Event.

Keep the suggestions coming, and thanks! We are spending four days and five nights in DC, driving there and back. We are booked at a place right next to the Metro and plan to use it instead of driving around.

I would spend the entire time in the Smithsonian museums, personally.

If you want to see the whole house you have to ask one of your congresscritters

White House tours have to be booked WAY in advance.

3 months to 21 days out. Worth a shot if you want to try. Especially being from a less populated state.

  And they are all free! Great city to visit. The only museum you need passes is the new African American museum. Way in advance. For Washington monument you need passes, too. But those you can get free the morning of your visit or in advance for couple of dollars online.
