D.C, as called by the locals, is more than the place to be for politics and sustainability. It’s also a place to visit museums and monuments, experience art and culture, and take in the nation’s rich history and architecture. The Smithsonian has become an the biggest collection of learning and history featuring the National Air and Space Museum, Museum of Natural History, Museum of American History and Museums of Asian art. One of the best parts of museum hopping in D.C. – it’s all free.

Alongside these great museums are Washington’s monuments that lay tribute to the important symbols and remembrance of those who fallen in our great wars. A place where you can spend hours on a nice autumn day while overlooking the Potomac River.

If it’s culture you’re looking for, check out a show at the Kennedy Center, or head to one of the local jazz clubs on U Street. If its history, art, shopping or eating you’re looking for, Washington, D.C. has you covered! From Georgetown to Eastern Market, everything you need is just a metro ride away.
