Lasy year we spent new years in NYC and it was easy to know were to go. This year we are planing my husband and I w/ 4 kids (10,10,8,3) to go to Washington DC. Our plan is to have a rental car and a small condo. We are looking in vacation rentals by owner and others. Before we make any decisions, I really need to know about the areas were should I look the condo to be situated. I have seen several next to the zoo area,the convention Ctr,Dupont cirlce,Capitol hill, white house. What will be the best? Do we really need the car? we have never been in Washington and we are planing to see as much as we can. We will also like to visit sorrounding locations (that it's why we thought of the car) near Washington like small towns... any suggestions? Finally, were can we spend new years? We'll be there for about 6 days. As much information you can give me the better.
Thank you for your help.
