Even without politics, Washington, D.C. is an interesting place to visit. In fact, getting to it can be life-altering. My husband, son, and I travelled by car to Washington from Ontario (Canada) on May 5th and made our way home May 10th. Travelling by car may have taken extra time, but it added to our list of adventures and was cheaper than flying. I learned a lot on this trip both inside and outside my conference (Society for Technical Communication's 2017 Summit #stc17).
