celebrated symbols of patriotism to its trendy
neighborhoods, the sights and sounds of the nation's capital
inspire millions of visitors every year. Packed with famous
sights, free attractions, and an endless calendar of special
events, Washington, DC offers year-round inspiring
experiences. The United States Capitol has so much to see
that you should spend several days here just too get a view
of the highlights. One could spend days just roaming through
the Smithsonian, composed of sixteen museums and galleries,
the National Zoo, and numerous research facilities in the
United States and abroad. Whether it is art, culture,
science or history, the Smithsonian preserved and shares the
great achievements of mankind. Marvel at the Lincoln
Memorial. Visit congress and tour the White House. Pay
tribute at Arlington Cemetery, the WWII Memorial, and the
Vietnam War Wall.
The District of Columbia is 67 square miles and divided
into 4 quadrants: Northwest, Southwest, Northeast and
Southeast. The U.S. Capitol building marks the center where
the quadrants meet. Numbered streets run north and south.
Lettered streets run east and west (there are no J, X, Y or
Z streets), becoming two-syllable names, then three-syllable
names as you travel farther out from the center. Avenues
named for US states run diagonally, often meeting at traffic
circles and squares.
