Podcast #191 - Suggestions and Tips for Visiting Washington DC during NECC 2009


Hello. Some of the listeners of this podcast will be heading to Washington DC at the end of June to attend NECC 2009. I have been fortunate to attend several NECC conferences in recent years but will not be attending - in person – this year. The current financial situation along with a desire to spend some time at home means I’ll be attending this year’s NECC virtually through a collection of podcasts, blog posts and tweets. Please post often if you are attending.


I must admit that I’m a little jealous since Washington DC is my favorite city to visit. I’ve been able to visit DC several times in the past couple of years and several listeners have e-mailed me questions about suggestions on what to do, where to stay, etc. I don’t consider myself an expert on DC in any manner but today’s podcast is a collection of suggestions and tips for visiting Washington DC – either for NECC 2009 or another trip.








If you have any suggestions for visiting DC - during NECC 2009 or any other time of year - please leave a comment on this blog for all to see and share. Thanks.

  1. Some colleagues and I at the National Mueum of American History will be at the Conference, so look for us there!
    For folks who are coming in to town to check out our Museum: We're open now! Many evenings, we'll even be open late (check here: http://americanhistory.si.edu/visiting/hours.cfm). While you're in our Museum, be sure to stop by one of our museum theater programs. My favorite is "Join the Student Sit-Ins" about the 1960 Sit-In protests for desegregation in Greensboro, NC.

  2. Hey, Eric. I tried to use your podcast host, but I thought a little difficult to me. By the way, good job. Big hug.
