Washington D.C. is the political playground of the United States, home to more memorials, epitaphs, tombs and monuments than I’ve seen anywhere else. D.C is small and can be covered in a few days tops, that is unless you’re a huge museum geek, in which case you may need a few extra days. I feel the beauty of DC lies in it’s layout. It’s simple and to the point. You can easily walk from sight to sight with ease.
