We are planning a last minute trip to D.C. We will be driving up from Atlanta and will be staying for 4-5 days around the 4th of July.
#1) We are flexible with our dates anytime between June 28th and July 6th. Should we avoid July 4th and go earlier?
#2) A friend suggested that we stay in Alexandria and should avoid D.C. Are there hotels that you suggested with 2 children 8&10?
#3) Heard that some hotels charge for Parking? Are there any hotels with free parking?
#4) Suggestions for Itinerary for 2 kids 8&10?
