Washington, DC, the U.S. capital, is a compact city on the Potomac River, bordering the states of Maryland and Virginia. It’s defined by imposing neoclassical monuments and buildings – including the iconic ones that house the federal government’s 3 branches: the Capitol, White House and Supreme Court. It’s also home to iconic museums and performing-arts venues such as the Kennedy Center.
It’s easy to ride the Metro or hop on a bike and explore all that the nation’s capital has to offer. Walk the halls of free Smithsonian museums, paddle on the Potomac and Anacostia rivers or sit back on a double-decker tour bus and soak up some history. Local shops, funky marketplaces and people-watching hot spots beckon by midday, as nighttime gives way to multi-course dinners and drinks from local breweries. However you spend your time here, make it count.
DC is a manageable size, with easy access to other top destinations in the region. The National Mall is walkable and chock full of museums. The National Zoo is one of the top zoos to visit (and it’s free!). In addition to renowned art museums and galleries, you can enjoy a range of theater and musical performances. DC even has plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities like hiking and biking. And of course, when you’re done exploring, DC has an epic assortment of amazing restaurants and top notch bars to refuel and unwind.
Rock Creek Park is DC’s favorite place for biking, skating, running and even horseback riding. Created by an act of Congress in 1890 to be used as a recreational resource, this lush landscape is a beckoning oasis that extends for over 1,800 acres
from concerts and cultural events to American history, free attractions and so much more.
