Google Earth for Vacation Planning

Rachel and I are planning a vacation trip to Washington D.C. in October, and I’ve been using Google Earth to look for airports, lodging, etc., to help us plan.

The ability to see where we’ll be staying, places we want to visit, etc., and save them all as markers is awesome. I think it will be quite useful once we’re there, to plan out places to go and see.

Any suggestions or recommendataions for things to do in D.C.? I lived there for a few months in 1996. We’ve got the usual stuff like the Smithsonian, all the Capitol stuff, etc. What are the can’t-miss spots in D.C.? (Bonus points for geeky stuff, of course 😉

    Spy museum is very cool. It’s pretty popular so just google it, I’m not sure where it is, but it’s about a 10 minute walk from the mall.

    They just opened up the Washington monument, so check that out. It’s been closed for repairs for a couple of years.

    And if I might suggest, take a day trip up to Baltimore (MARC train on weekdays is quick), have some crabs and hang out on the Inner Harbor. Catch an Orioles game and make sure you see the view from the top of Federal Hill.

    Can you tell I live in Baltimore? 🙂 Thanks for the review of the 700m.
