Dear PoP – What to do with a 7 and 10 Year Old from Upstate NY?

“Dear PoP,

We have our 7 and 10 year old nephews coming into town from upstate New York for a visit with us. We’ve done the Natural History, Building, Air & Space, Native American, you name it museum with them before. We’re trying to plan something fun to do down here for the 7 year olds birthday that A) we haven’t done before; B) a 7 and 10 year old would find really fun; C) Something they wouldn’t be able to do up in upstate New York (that part shouldn’t be that hard to accomplish). We don’t have kids ourselves and our general knowledge of things for kids to do in DC is pretty lacking. Does anyone out there have suggestions of places to go or things to try?!”

Hmm, looks like you hit all the big ones – I’m gonna say (while it’s not as good as Baltimore’s aquarium) the National Aquarium in the Commerce Dep’t (14th and Constitution Avenue, NW). Or of course the National Zoo.

What would you guys recommend?
