Washington DC - Family rides Metro from park and ride to Smithsonian Station. Big surprise, right? Wrong! We chose a park and ride that was not on the way into DC. It was strategically located to reduce Vehicle Miles Travelled (VMT) and give the kids a taste of the subway, introducing it by starting above ground.
When we had to transfer lines, we recognized that we weren't in Kansas any more and there was quite a crush of riders when we finally got to the Smithsonian. Yes, we weren't the only folks planning to visit the Museums on the mall on the federal holiday.
This inconvenience did give me a chance to see the subway station work at maximum capacity and so I snapped a few photos to recall the fun we had (at least I had) on our visit to DC.
