Yes, the U.S. capital operates on a monumental scale. Any visit will, of course, include a trip to the National Mall, an outdoor space where Smithsonian museums meet emotionally touching monuments to Abraham Lincoln and Vietnam veterans, as well as the Washington Monument. Both the National Air & Space Museum and the National Museum of American History are packed with engaging exhibits. Tours of the White House, the U.S. Capitol and the Library of Congress are more than worth the effort. But don’t forget the city’s natural beauty, especially when the cherry blossoms open in spring. Head for the wooded hiking and biking trails winding through Rock Creek Park. Shoppers will want to stroll northern Wisconsin Avenue in Friendship Heights for Gucci, Barney’s and Neiman Marcus. And for an alternative take on power politics, consider a stop at the International Spy Museum. Afterwards, check out the Penn Quarter, where you can choose from a host of trendy restaurants, such as Café Atlántico for Nuevo Latino fare and Brasserie Beck for French Belgian cuisine.
