Trees aglow in downtown DC

Filed Under:

Little children love lights and decorated trees...And as of this week, downtown DC has plenty to see. The tree on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol will be lit as of tonight, and tomorrow night the National Tree at the Ellipse near the White House will follow.

We also love taking our daughter to Union Station to see the huge, live lit tree donated each year by the Norwegian Embassy, decorated with American and Norwegian flags -- and the (FREE) model train display depicting Norwegian winter scenes. You'll find both in the main hall of the station. Heads up: The train runs only 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. (seven days a week).

Another model train (bigger and better this year, I'm told) and beautiful decor are also on display at the U.S. Botanic Garden, near the Capitol.
