Wanted to explain where I was the past week - I was in Washington, DC for a conference. Got there on Sunday about noon and got home this afternoon. I didn’t have time for much sightseeing, but did go on one evening bus tour to see the monuments, White House and Capitol. The tour bus I was on was not wheelchair accessible. I noticed some of the companies that do bus tours advise that they are not wheelchair accessible. Other tours indicated there are wheelchair accessible tours, but they must be booked 48 hours in advance. The tour I was on made stops at the various monuments for participants to get out and walk around the monument. We had a little time at each monument - not enough time to look if any of the ones with lots of stairs have any accessible entrances. I wanted to go to the monuments again during the day time, but just ran out of time. I was with 2 new friends (met at the convention and immediately bonded). We did go to the Senate and House office buildings, into one building and went between some of the buildings by the tunnel system. I was pleasantly surprised to find that wheelchair accessible entrances were well marked, both inside the government buildings and in the ‘you are here’ signs at each corner in front of major government buildings. We also visited the Capitol Visitor Center, which was very nice, although we had only about 45 minutes to see it (not enough).
