Washington DC is the United State’s political capital. Those interested in American politics (or even those who are not and purely want to uncover a little about the background and history of the country) will love visiting the various museums and sites of political importance here.
While in Washington DC, take advantage of the history and culture lessons on offer and be sure to stop by all of the notable political buildings and monuments. This includes admiring the White House and seeing if you can catch a glimpse of the President, visiting the Lincoln Memorial , the National Mall, the Thomas Jefferson Memorial, the Washington Monument, and the Smithsonian Institution Offices.
Washington DC also has a lot of history museums and memorials that are well worth visiting -- pay your respects at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall and gain an insight into space travel at the National Air and Space Museum.
The city is particularly beautiful, with elegant architecture and neatly coordinated streets boasting plenty of great shopping opportunities.
Downtown Washington DC is a great place to stay to be close to all of the important monuments and historic places, whereas Adams Morgan is a more young, hip area filled with tons of great nightlife spots and bars.
Washington DC can be visited all year round, though arguably the city is more beautiful when decorated with floral blossoms in the spring or the colors in fall.
