5. Don't Get Caught Behind a Class Trip

Every spring, schools all around the United States organize class trips to Washington, D.C. While this is a great educational experience for the students, getting stuck behind a class of rowdy eighth graders can slow your journey down significantly. Most school trips occur in March and May, so consider planning your vacation for other months. If you do see a large group of kids, you may want to come back another time.
