"The great thing about DC is..." Combined Suggestions Tip by Eseg

Combined Suggestions, Washington D.C.: 17 reviews and 7 photos

Favorite thing: The great thing about DC is the myriad of museums, great buildings, and lifestyle of its cosmopolitan population. You must see our great art galeries (National Galery of Art, Corcoran Gallery of Art, the Phillips Collection, the National Museum of Natural History, and the collections of the Library of Congress), as well as our music scene (Kennedy Center, the Birchmere, the Warner & National theaters). When it comes to lifestyle, though, you just need to remember 3 places: Georgetown, Dupont Circle, and Old Town Alexandria. The many restaurants, shops, and trendy people will keep you quite occupied during your stay here.

Fondest memory: Some images of DC you'll never forget. First, there's the experience of watching the sunrise over the imposing monumets at the Mall. Second, the Tidal Basin in early Spring sorrownded by the Japanese Sherry Blossom trees in full bloom.
