Washington, DC
The Essential
Highly recommended
Unlike other world capitals, Washington developed at the outset as the capital of a democratic nation. Its broad avenues and regal monuments serve as visual paeans to the democratic ideal, and the city abounds with memorial tributes to the titans of American history: George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson and others. The monumental Capital, the broad National Mall lined with outstanding public museums, the dignified memorials and the White House are all enhanced by lovely green spaces befitting the city's role as a place of pilgrimage that delights Americans young and old, and a growing number of foreign visitors as well.
