About Washington, D.C.
Washington DC is not just any Capital. It is the Capital and carries with it a rich history. An incredibly popular travel destination, Washington is home to a host of iconic institutions that paved the way to make America what it is today. EMGS highly recommends everyone to take at least some time out of their trip to visit some of these incredible destinations. More information can be found here: https://www.washington.org.
Georgetown and the Waterfront
Take a stroll through the bustling streets of Georgetown, brimming with shopping destinations and restaurants, and then make your way to the Georgetown Waterfront to take in views of the Potomac and enjoy a meal at one of the dining venues overlooking the water. For the dreamers out there, take a scenic route and take in some of the most expensive real estate in the country. It is truly a site to behold.
Best seen at night, the Lincoln Memorial is truly a sight to behold. Constructed as a tribute to our sixteenth president, Abraham Lincoln, this architectural marvel was dedicated to him in 1922 where he sits, immortalized in marble to signify strength, unity, and wisdom.
"In this temple, as in the hearts of the people for whom he saved the Union, the memory of Abraham Lincoln is enshrined forever."
Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum
A trip to Washington DC isn't complete without at least stopping by the world-renowned Smithsonian Museum. Here, you can get a tangible timeline demonstrating the progress mankind has made in the way of air and space travel. With interactive exhibits and countless pieces to learn about, the Smithsonian is a must-see while in Washington DC.
The White House
What visit to the Capital is complete without stopping to marvel at one of the most iconic and historic buildings in American history. While access to the inside of the building is only available when scheduled in advance, simply take a walk around the rear of the building to get a much closer look at the home which the President of the United States resides.
