1) National Monuments and Museums
We can’t possibly mention Washington D.C. without covering the historical sites. From the riverfront behind the Lincoln Memorial to the top of the U.S. Capitol itself, the National Mall has been nicknamed “America’s Front Yard.” It’s lined with some of the most famous museums and monuments in the country for a 1.9 mile stretch. Newseum on Pennsylvania Avenue features wonderful exhibits such as sections of the Berlin Wall (biggest display outside Germany) and the archive of headlines covering major events from the 1400s to today. And absolute must-stops for newbies are the Smithsonian and the Holocaust Memorial Museum.
2) Grade A Entertainment
No matter what the medium (whether it be music, theatre or movies), if it’s popular, it’s going to have a run in D.C. for at least a little while. Right now, for example, Hamilton is currently playing there. The Landmark movie theaters around town are showing indie films that only about three other cities in the country get to see. This summer will see major musical acts like Ariana Grande, Queen and Jennifer Lopez. None of this would ever happen in a small town.
3) Epic Annual Events
Absolutely nobody throws a party like Washington D.C. on a holiday. Case-in-point, the National Memorial Day Parade along Constitution Avenue, followed by the National Concert on the lawn of the U.S. Capitol. Or the 4th of July Celebration on the National Mall with a traditional Beach Boys concert along with other musical acts. These are two of the biggest celebrations in the entire country. Also don’t forget the DC Jazz Festival, St Patty’s Day Parade and Capital Pride.
4) All the Sports You Can Handle
It doesn’t get much better than a city like Washington D.C. for sports fans. Whether it’s football, hockey, basketball, baseball or soccer you crave, the city has something for you for every time of year. The NHL Capitals just won the Stanley Cup last year. Their professional soccer team, D.C. United, has won four MLS cup titles. And let’s not forget the beloved NFL Redskins, NBA Wizards, and the MLB Nationals in the summer at Nationals Park along the river.
