See the City
Museums are a first stop for many visitors to Washington, and for good reason. Not only are the institutions in the capital well stocked with cultural and artistic treasures, but many of these destinations are also free to visit, funded by the government for the good of the public. The Smithsonian Institution in itself is made up of 17 different sites of learning and discovery. The Folger Shakespeare Library, located near the Supreme Court, offers free tours and hosts the most comprehensive collection of the Bard’s works, not just in America but in the whole world.
In Washington, the whole city can feel like one big museum, with monuments dotting the landscape, from the Washington Monument to the Lincoln Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and more. After a full day of seeing historical sites, you can stop into a Michelin-starred restaurant. Alternately, you can start your day with a top-quality meal at a beloved brunch spot, among the many in the District.
