Merci pour tous les bons conseils. Effectivement, nous n'aurons pas le temps de visiter le musée sur le site de Dulles, en revanche à la vue de vos avis, nous ferons donc les 2, l'Intrepid à NY et le musée de l'air et de l'espace de Washington. Il est vrai qu'après avoir vu des photos et videos sur internet, ce serait dommage de passer à côté !!! Autre question, pendant que nous y sommes. Durant nos 2 jours à Washington, nous envisageons de voir tous les monuments jouxtant Le Mall (Mémorial Lincoln, Le Capitol, la Maison Blanche, etc...) ainsi que donc le musée de l'air et de l'espace et éventuellement le Muséum d'histoire naturelle (si nous avons le temps, car nous aurons également fait celui de NY).

J'envisageai également de faire un détour par le cimetière d'Arlington, pour aller voir le mémorial du corps des Marines des Etats Unis ainsi que la tombe de JFK et éventuellement le pentagone, cela vaut-il le coup ? Est ce préférable de flaner du côté de Dupont Circle et/ou Georgetown ? CVC::Public Website::Welcome Screen. Arlington National Cemetery > Explore the Cemetery > Changing of the Guard. George Washington's Mount Vernon. Experience Mount Vernon George Washington, commander in chief of American forces in the Revolutionary War and the first president of the United States, called Mount Vernon home for more than 40 years. George Washington and his wife Martha Washington lived at Mount Vernon, which is now the most popular historic estate in America. Situated along the Potomac River in Northern Virginia, Mount Vernon is just 16 miles south of Washington, D.C.

Today, guests to Mount Vernon can visit the Mansion, more than a dozen original structures, Washington’s Tomb, and nearly 50 acres of his extensive plantation. The estate also includes a working blacksmith shop and the Pioneer Farm, a 4-acre demonstration farm with a reconstructed slave cabin and 16-sided treading barn. The Ford Orientation Center features an inspiring film, We Fight To Be Free. Just 3 miles down the road from the Mansion, George Washington’s Distillery & Gristmill have been reconstructed and are open seasonally.
