This morning I sat on Rosa Parks' bed, searched for hidden doors, read a note from June Carter, and got lost too many times to count. With the clock ticking on our time here in the DC area and a quick visit from our niece, I decided we all needed to head over to the O Street Mansion for a truly unique DC experience. I was the only one who had been to the Mansion before and had been looking for the right opportunity to bring my kids. And today turned out to be the perfect morning for it.
Windy, overcast, and chilly we quickly ran up the steps of a red brick rowhouse and crossed over the threshold into the quirky world of the Mansion with its towering layers of artifacts, stories, and secrets. We only found 5 of the 70 hidden doors, but we certainly had fun doing it. Definitely add this spot to your list of DC experiences.
