We arrived in DC last night and got to our apartment about 6pm. It is in a row house built in the early 20th century in the DuPont Circle area. Last night hubby and I took a walk to find dinner and the area has lots of restaurants and gorgeous old houses - I think we are going to be very happy here
Awwwww, so happy that you adored WDW with your family. It really is a fabulous place.

Can't wait to hear about DC.

Sitting on the Amtrak train chugging our way to NYC to spend Thanksgiving!

Our time in Washington was very brief (only 3 full days) but we did everything I wanted too and really enjoyed the city. The weather was perfect - blue sunny skies and warm enough just for a long sleeve top in the afternoons but that gorgeous crisp chill in the mornings (autumn is my favourite season!) so I hope our luck continues in NY

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Wonderful to hear you enjoyed Washington. We can't wait to get there.

And NYC will be kind to you I'm sure. How exciting to be there for Thanksgiving. Will you be going to the parade?

We just saw snow flakes outside our window! We are on the 20th floor and by the time we got our coats on and got outside there was nothing left... Fingers crossed we will get some more

Went on a carriage ride through Central Park today and then did some shopping at Macys it's only 4:30pm but we decided we needed an evening at home - it's been go go go since we arrived!

Hey Dabecs, awwww snowflakes. I have my fingers crossed we get to witness that as well.

Did you enjoy your carriage ride through Central Park? May I ask how much you paid for that and how long the ride went for? We have done it once before in 2009 however I know the pricing must have increased quite alot since then so would welcome your advice.

An evening at home sounds perfectly heavenly. You can't just keep going going going every day without needing a rest on occasion.

Ms Shuttergirl - the carriage rides are $50 for 20 minutes, they are all the same set price. And of course on top of that you have to tip

Today was planned as our climbing the Statue day but as she is now closed I'm not sure of our exact plans. Last night I watched a show about the Rockettes Christmas Spectacular which we are going to tomorrow - can't wait!

Shushh - last night was supposed to be our night at Ninja but I cancelled because we all needed a night at 'home'. I'm still hoping we can get there another night this week.

Thanks Dabecs, that's what my research had told me, its good to have it confirmed by someone on the scene.

Catch the ferry to Staten Island if it's running as it goes right past Lady Liberty and you get a better view from the water than if you were on the island with her.
