Travel to Washington DC
To visit Washington DC is to be at the centre of the most powerful democracy in the world surrounded by many of the monuments and memorials Americans cherish most. It is also an opportunity to share in the unique vibe and vibrancy of one of the most cosmopolitan metropolises on earth. Whatever the interest, Washington DC delivers.
Exploring the Wealth of Washington DC
Once visitors have paid homage (preferably at night) at the Lincoln, Jefferson and Martin Luther King, Jr. memorials, or one of the many others dedicated to battles fought and won, the renewed inspiration to share in the city’s soul can lead them down a variety of well-trodden paths. Those hungry for the arts and culture have only to explore the extensive menu offered by the Smithsonian Institution with its 19 museums and galleries to have that hunger fully satisfied. Magnificent gardens and the National Zoological Park serve as a spectacular dessert.
