Activities

The Nation’s Capital teems with iconic monuments, potent symbols of the American narrative, from the massive Lincoln Memorial to the powerful Vietnam Veterans Memorial to the inspirational Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial. The city is also filled with vast and free museums – the National Air and Space Museum, the National Museum of Natural History, and National Museum of American History are all here. And don’t forget to visit the corridors of power – the White House, the United States Capitol, the Supreme Court, and the Pentagon. Surrounding these attractions are eclectic and diverse neighborhoods, in which funky marketplaces and people-watching hot spots beckon by day, as nighttime gives way to multi-course dinners and drinks from local breweries. And it’s easy to ride the Metro or hop on a bike from the excellent Capital Bikeshare system and explore all that DC has to offer.
