    Washington Monument

    4.5
    188 reviews

    One of the best views of Washington is from the top of the Washington Monument. It's the view you see on television during major events. Plan early to get a tour ticket. The tour is a treat, since the Monument was closed until May of 2014 after an earthquake caused major damage. Pick up a Junior Ranger booklet for the ...

    White House

    4.5
    179 reviews

    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.

    Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History

    4.5
    133 reviews

    I don't think it is possible to complete this museum in one day. If you're like me and you like to read all the little fine print on every exhibit, you'll be here for days. The amount of knowledge stored in this place is immense!

    U.S. Capitol Building

    4.5
    143 reviews

    It's actually pretty thrilling to see the Capitol building in person. It's really a beautiful building and stands out brilliantly at the end of the mall. The interior of the building is beautiful and full of history. Be sure to take a free tour!

    Vietnam Veterans Memorial

    4.5
    97 reviews

    The wall was filled with a lot of visitors and tourists. This is a free attraction and seeing a reflection of yourself against the black wall filled with soldiers' names who died in battle brings such sad sorrow. It is a great tribute to those who served in the Vietnam War.

    Reflecting Pool

    4.5
    92 reviews

    Iconic. It's very impressive to see this massive and historic pool right in the middle of the city reflecting back the massive and equally historic building that surround it. Adds a real element of depth and a touch of class to an already beautiful city.

    National Mall

    4.5
    85 reviews

    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.

    Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum

    4.5
    79 reviews

    The Air and Space Museum was definitely my favorite of all the museums that are part of the Smithsonian. The IMAX movie (Hubble 3D) was very worth it, and I was brought back to my childhood when I bought astronaut ice cream. My favorite part was the photography of the planets, stars, galaxies, and everything about space. We were here ...

    National World War II Memorial

    4.5
    64 reviews

    My favorite monument in DC is an architectural beauty with a poignant story. Designed thoughtfully to fit between the Washington and Lincoln monuments, preserving the National Mall without being disruptive, it pays long overdue homage to veterans who fought in the European and Pacific theaters. The combination of columns and water all have meaning. It is as peaceful as it ...

    Smithsonian National Zoological Park

    4.5
    67 reviews

    This zoo is the tops. The exhibits are well done and easy to see (no matter how tall you are) and a wide variety of animals make their home here. I love that the orangutans can be seen swinging overhead in the open air, for example, and the gorillas are almost accessible enough to be downright scary. Sometimes the animals ...

    US Holocaust Memorial Museum

    4.5
    51 reviews

    This museum is the most thought-provoking and gives you so many chances to reflect on one of the darkest periods in history. It is sad, but I left feeling more informed and pensive than depressed. History like this shouldn't be repeated and the Holocaust museum aims to give that message. You do have to get free timed tickets in the ...

    National Gallery of Art

    4.5
    48 reviews

    Free, massive,spread out collection of Western European and American art, considered one of the best art museums in the world. It houses the only Leonardo Da Vinci on public display in the U S. Like most of the Smithsonian museums, trying to see it all in a single visit is impossible. Great collection.

    This is the most epic library you will ever see! It would take days just to read through all the titles and contains some of the most important documents of our country's history.

    I love that it's free and that there's a lot to learn. It's a little long and got a bit boring for me. My fiance enjoyed every second of it though!
