5 Can't Miss Stops In Washington D.C.
United States Botanic Garden
George Washington had a vision for D.C. that included botanic gardens. In 1820, that dream became a reality when the US Botanic Garden was created.
The expansive gardens are technically a "living plant museum". It is open 7 days a week year round and admission is free.
The FDR Memorial
This is one of the most interactive memorials in DC. With a "room"for each of his four terms, visitors walk through history.
The National Mall
Spanning from the Lincoln Memorial to the Capitol, it is 1.9 miles. Spring is my favorite season here as the many trees lining the Mall are in bloom.
Between the many Smithsonian museums, food stands, and memorials, you could spend all day here.
The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
Located on thr National Mall, the museum not only discusses the Holocaust, but many other modern genocides like what occurred in Bosina and Rwanda.
The museum is free and features both traveling and permanent exhibits. A ticket is needed for the permanent exhibit and can be reserved online.
The Potomac Basin
The Basin offers an easy 2.1 mile walk, passing many of the memorials. This is a great, scenic way to get to the Jefferson Memorial from the Mall.
