A city of unrivaled architecture and influence, Washington, D.C. never ceases to captivate the imaginations and ambitions of visitors from around the globe with its colossal collection of monuments and memorials, museum and tree-lined parks.
Politics aside, Washington, D.C. tells the story of America and the people who have shaped it in ways that equally appeal to both adults and kids.
At the center of it all is the National Mall, and area where many of the city’s most famous attractions can be found, including the U.S. Capitol, Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, and the U.S. Botanic Garden. Also located along the beautiful mall is the Smithsonian Institution which incorporates the world’s largest museum complex. Among its incredible lineup of museums are the Air and Space Museum, American History Museum, Natural History Museum, and the National Zoo. You’ll find the White House just northwest of the National Mall at 16th and Pennsylvania Avenue, Northwest.
Regardless if you’re staying for a week or a weekend, do make it a priority to see D.C.’s newest addition, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial located in West Potomac Park, southwest of the National Mall. The memorial is quite a fitting tribute, and on that should be experienced by all. Carved from solid granite, the image of Dr. King emerging from the stone reflects the steadfast resolve of an entire generation to achieve a fair and honest society.
Each season brings new life and activity to Washington, D.C. From the Cherry Blossom Festival in spring to the Independence Day parade and fireworks show on the Fourth of July, and the lighting of the National Christmas Tree in December, there is always a reason to celebrate.
