Washington, D.C.’s unforgettable skyline is marked by some of the world’s most celebrated monuments. The awe-inspiring structures, statues and temples that grace the National Mall tell fascinating stories through their histories and designs. From the Washington Monument to the World War II Memorial to the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, D.C. traces the history of the USA.
But take the time to venture beyond the Mall. Myriad museums, sophisticated dining, diverse shopping, professional sports teams and in the spring, the incredible cherry blossoms around the Tidal Basin, are easy walks, short bike trips or Metro rides away.
