Our last day!! Our hotel was conveniently located just a walk from Arlington cemetery. In the morning we took a stroll down to the cemetery and rented bikes. We biked through the cemetery (only later realizing this isn’t allowed), and biked over the bridge to the National mall where we saw the major monuments such as the Lincoln memorial, The White House, Congress, and more. The bike ride took us 3 hours, but it was so great to use our legs!
We then drove 5 hours (with a lunch break), to my hometown in NJ! It was a great last day and we spent a lot of time reflecting on our favorite parts. Perhaps we’ll write a reflection post soon.
We were greated so warmly by my parents with champagne and a beautiful bbq!
