After the “Restoring Honor” Rally, tour the Capitol Building


Immediately after the “Restoring Honor” rally on 8/28 — and what will either be a very brisk 2 mile/40 minute walk, or a 10 minute cab ride — the 114 of us have reservations for the last 2 tours of the Capitol Building at 3:10 and 3:20, courtesy of Tequesta Congressman Tom Rooney, from Florida’s 16th Congressional District.  While these tickets are free, and relatively easy to get for small groups of 5 or 10 people, getting 100+ at a time is a big deal, and usually reserved only for tour groups “sponsored” by Senators or Representatives.  Security being what it is these days, the Capitol’s Visitor Center has some strict rules concerning the size of bags or backpacks you can bring, what can be in those bags, and where you can or can’t use cameras or video recorders.  If you plan on taking the tour, please check out the Visitor Center’s site at http://www.visitthecapitol.gov/ , and particularly the safety and policies page.  If you’d rather sight-see on your own for the 6+ hours we’ll have between the end of the rally and the bus launch, let us know on the bus on the day of the trip.  If you’d like to drop Congressman Rooney a quick note to thank him for the tickets, you can do that here.

    Anyone got any recommendations on what to see after the Capitol tour? I’ve been told it’s a little more than an hour long. So that leaves almost 3 hours to eat and sightsee around town. I think I’d like to take my daughter over to the National Archives, to see the REAL Declaration of Independence AND the Constitution. After that, there’s a little-known memorial to the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence, on a little island in the middle of the Constitution Gardens Pond, just north of the Reflecting Pool.
