Take in the many splendors of the nation’s capital when you arrive at Washington, D.C.

Your Washington, D.C. tour should start at the National Mall, where you’ll find monuments, memorials, and government buildings instead of tons of shopping. If you’d like to get around town easily but don’t want to rent a car, the Capital Bikeshare program will let you cruise around the city without wasting gas or getting stuck in traffic.

Check out the Watergate Hotel and Kennedy Center when you stop at Foggy Bottom, then move on to Georgetown, the oldest district in D.C. It’s filled with 18th-century buildings and, of course, the university itself. After a stop at the National Cathedral, make your way to the Smithsonian National Zoo, the perfect stop for the young and the young at heart.

If you’re feeling the need to channel your inner 007, go to the International Spy Museum, and learn about the covert operations and intelligence agencies that have shaped the world we live in. Of course, you can’t enjoy any Washington, D.C., tourism without admiring the White House, so make sure that’s on your list too.

      You know, I’m lucky to be born in North Carolina but I’ve been raised in VA all 20 years of my life. Compared to my parents, they don’t really seem that much to live on the city but I’m different from them. I wish I was born in DC instead of being born in Eden NC. I’ve always been a city boy and I can see myself living in a big city someday because there’s always something happening! But you could say in a sense that I’ve been lucky to be raised in the capital state of the US! Oh yeah 😎 you might as well think that I’ve been born here instead lol

      Like just say this. Ok guys you're going to have to start recycling. Also each state can no longer be trusted to govern it's self. One nation under God. United we stand divided we fall y'all!

      Washington, founded July 16th,1790. My hometown in Germany already was 572 years old at that time.
      But Washington now looks like a typical city in Europe. Churches are the tallest buildings there. No skyscrapers.

      Washington D. C., oficialmente denominado Distrito de Columbia, es la capital de los Estados Unidos de América. Se administra como distrito federal, una entidad diferente a los cincuenta estados que componen dicha nación, y depende directamente del gobierno federal.
