    Here's what you need to know about CI - their logo is on the back of bags of Starbucks Coffee, they were awarded the largest single environmental donation in history, and, due to their unique fundraising strategy that targets a small handful of big impact donors, you may have never heard of them. CI works primarily in developing nations with ...

    This memorial gets crazy crowded but is so iconic you have to go there at least once. It is lit up beautifully at night, but I like the cheezy photo ops during the day. Perfect tourist photo is from the top of the steps with the reflecting pool, Washington Monument and Capitol all in the background. Inside, Lincoln's Statute and ...

    Great memorial, rich in history, and very beautiful, especially against a bright blue sky. Pretty at night, too, and gorgeous area, especially when the cherry blossoms are blooming. If you want to make it to the top of the memorial, be sure to reserve your spot well in advance of your trip. Like a couple months. Otherwise, try to get ...

    There's just so much that the White House represents and it means so many different things to so many people. I had mixed emotions when I visited the White House - and I'm sure the experience is different for everyone.

    Walk 15 short blocks or ride the Metro (Blue or Orange lines, located around the corner) and in two short stops you'll find yourself at our Nation's Capitol. Worth touring, the building is beautiful and rich in history.

    If your kids like creepy-crawly things, this is the place for you. The museum has millions of insect specimens. Happily, they aren't all on display! The huge African bull elephant in the lobby draws everyone in. Maybe you can get in a few words about the environment and ecology while you are there.

    So much to do on the mall! You could spend an entire week visiting the museums & monuments. Take the metro so you don't have to pay to park in a garage since the street parking spots have 2 hour time limits.

    Always a favorite from the first time I went as a kid. If you are in DC stop by for a visit. It is one of the more impressive and interesting museums. The flight and space exhibits are fascinating and the Smithsonian has been thorough and detailed in their exhibits.

    Does everyone have a kid who wants to be an astronaut? This is where dreams are made. The Spirit of St. Louis, space capsules, flight simulators … It's no wonder this is a first stop for visitors from all over the world. For the absolutely exhausted, I'd try chilling with an IMAX movie or a planetarium show.

    Beautiful and serene. Endless rows of stark reminders of the sacrifices of so many. The grounds are breathtaking and well worth an afternoon. Several memorials are also in the cemetery. One I particularly like is the USS Maine - an old mast commemorating the losses suffered that precipitated the Spanish-American war. Changing of the guard at the tomb of the ...

    The Library has more than 150 million items, and not all of them are books! The sound recordings are my favorite, but there are also photographs, maps, sheet music and motion pictures. I especially love the Main Reading Room -- beautiful and awe-inspiring.

    I love the “family guides” that describe the art in various galleries, and then provide questions and little projects for those aged 6 and up. There is also an audio tour designed for children. Edgar Degas' Little Dancer Aged Fourteen is a favorite with young ballerinas.

    This is my favorite Smithsonian museum since there is something for everyone. Whether it's for Abraham Lincoln's top hat or Miss Piggy, your family will remember this place. The museum shops are fun, too. I like the personalized dog tags that are made while you wait at their military-themed store.
