Amtrak Adventure: NYC to Washington DC

It is time to leave NYC and move on to Washington DC, where we will be for the next week. We are taking the train from Penn Station departing at 12:50 pm and we arrive at Union Station at 4:10 pm. From the train station, we head down to the metro.  Thank you to Mr. A. Jackson, who assisted us with the purchase of a 7 day, short range metro pass ($81 for both), which would allow unlimited usage over the week.  He also helped get us on the right train and off at the station closest to our hotel. Bless you, Sir!

From the Dupont Circle metro, we are a few blocks away from the Hyatt at 2121 M St NW, which was a nice find including free internet and a nice breakfast daily.  Kirk and I have been here in DC three times previously, so we really don’t have any plans. We have a few friends in the area we are hoping to hook up with at some point and we want to see some of the Christmas decorations, like the National Tree.  There is also a new Bible Museum here which just opened earlier this month which we would like to check out.
