Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
Jaded DC residents sometimes forget how incredibly picturesque their city is, even though it's so crowded with monuments and memorials that it looks like a Hollywood movie set (pre-Armageddon, of course). There are a million things to do in Washington, DC, but if you live here long enough, you get used to seeing Abraham Lincoln peering down at you from his giant marble chair, or the Capitol dome rising over the horizon. Best of all, many Washington, DC attractions are on the list of free things to do in DC, including, of course, the impressive collection of Smithsonian museums. So, this weekend, instead of sitting around lamenting the state of the Union, get out there and immerse yourself in the capital’s inspiring sights.
