Washington DC

Majestic monuments and memorials that pay that tribute to notable leaders, eclectic neighborhoods,  and true local flavor – Washington, DC is a place unlike any other. Internationally renowned collections of the Smithsonian—140 million objects, specimens, and artworks displayed in the world's largest museum complex—make Washington one of the great museum cities. Always revered for its astonishing collection of historical troves, DC also is a serious music, culinary, and nightlife hub. There is a lot of diversity in DC - while the members of congress and those who attend to them spend lots of money, students keep it cheap and lively, and tons of tourists from all over the world keep it rushed and eclectic.
