Washington, DC manages a monumental feat. It is at once the seat of the United States government with all the political power that ensures and entails, but it is also one of the country's great tourist towns. Though perhaps lacking the luster of New York City or San Francisco, it none-the-less is crammed with cultural activities, well-planned green spaces, historical buildings, great dining options, and quirky colorful neighborhoods perfect for strolling. It's tough to top its museum options and when you factor in that most of them are free, it becomes a fairly affordable city by northeastern North American standards. Factor in one of the country's only viable mass transit systems, all made tourist friendly with easy to digest signs, and you have about as perfect a tourist destination as you could imagine, ready to explore. Just make sure to allot plenty of time. You will need it to even scratch its surface.
