If I knew then what I know now, I would do things slightly different...from a parent perspective. I was lucky enough to witness R-Day, March Back, and A-Day. All three were amazing for very different reasons. If you can only attend one event make sure it's A-Day! If you have some flexibility, then I would suggest taking off a week beginning with March Back and ending with A-Day. Between the Monday March Back and the Saturday A-Day Parade, take time to visit the museums, take the tours, and even spend some time in NYC. I think it would have been what I would have done differently. I realize that work schedules take president, but if you can swing it, it would be a great way to bookend an amazing week.
