Washington DC; where the great American dream was born, documented and put on display. And people have been visiting ever since – standing by the gates at the white house to catch a glimpse of the latest president walking his dog, strolling through the Lincoln and Jefferson Memorialss wandering through the Washington Monument. Washington DC isn't short on notable attractions.
But more than the iconic buildings and statues, the USA capital is a sea of activity. A guided tour of Capitol will prove that. Sitting atop Capitol Hill, the white, dome shaped United States Capitol building is the meeting place of the US Congress and the perfect place to get your inevitable dose of USA politics.
But there's more to Washington than senators at lunch. The city even has a sexy side. You just have to know where to look – like the International Spy Museum. Wander the museum incognito and spy the KGB lipstick pistols and other James Bond-style gadgets that are on display. Other museum items you won't want to miss out on include Dorothy's iconic red slippers from The Wizard of Oz, the Hope diamond and Apollo 11 artefacts, all found at the Smithsonian Museums.
After days spent at museums and monuments, take the green or yellow line to the U Street Corridor to let off some steam. It is here that restaurants bustle, live music spills out into the street and bars serve cocktails well into the night. Of all of U Street's establishments though, none are more beloved than Ben's Chili bowl, an old-school family run restaurant that has been serving chilli-dogs since the late fifties.
