If you are making a quick stop in Washington DC for the weekend there are plenty of things to do.  You could take advantage of the many free historical monuments and memorials, explore the many free museums or discover something entirely new.  Whatever you choose to do there are many things to do in Washington DC this weekend.

Visit the National WWII Memorial.  This memorial was put up to honor the 16 million people who served during WWII and for the many people who supported the war effort at home.  There are 2 large arches, pillars and a field of over 4 thousand gold stars symbolizing the 400,000 who died.  Pay a tribute to those who fought in the war and gave up their lives and visit the National WWII memorial.

If you are in the mood of seeing what life was like in history visit the oldest house in Washington DC, the Old Stone House.  The house was built by a cabinetmaker in 1765 and has been preserved well.  You can imagine living in the 1700’s right before the American Revolution broke out and see how our forefathers lived.

Another historical building to visit on the weekend is President Lincoln’s Cottage.  The cottage is considered the second most important place associated with President Lincoln after the White House. The president spent much of his time at the cottage and lived there for over a quarter of his presidency in the cottage with his family.  There are guided tours given daily and tickets are 12 dollars.

In remembrance of President Theodore Roosevelt visit the Theodore Roosevelt Island.  It is very beautiful but especially during the spring when the cherry blossoms bloom.  This weekend spend some time going to the island and see the statue of Roosevelt.

Every weekend there are plenty of things to do.  Try to visit the many free things that Washington DC has to offer and you will always have a wonderful time.
