Monuments & Memorials

DC is home to some of the country’s most recognized and historical monuments, most of which reside within walking distance of the National Mall. From the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial to the Lincoln Memorial and Washington Monument, the DC Circulator’s National Mall route can take you on a tour before dropping you directly at the blossoms.

The District has an awesome variety of museums for you to explore. From the Air and Space Museum to the Postal Museum there’s a little something for everyone. Visit for more information on the Smithsonian museums, all of which are completely FREE to visit!


Got a craving? You’re in luck. The District has no equal when it comes to cuisine. Whether you’re grabbing brunch at a bistro in Adams Morgan, sampling global cuisine in Dupont or trying tapas in Penn Quarter, every meal of the day is something to look forward to.

National Zoo

The National Zoo in Cleveland Park is one of DC’s biggest attractions. Of course it would need to be big in order to call itself home to giant pandas, Asian elephants and lions. The best part? Admission is always free.
