According to Marriot these hotels are near downtown DC and Old Town Alexandria. Thought that was nice:)

I want to know some fun things we can do. I was going to choose the harbor but I don't think there is much there we would want to do. If you know some fun things there please tell also.

Also do you think we should go to Alexandria or the National Harbor?

Anyway, what are some fun things we can do?

Thanks :)
