DC is more than just the sum of its governmental agencies. A restaurant boom, burgeoning tech scene and the resurgence for the city’s basketball, football and baseball teams have residents excited to live here.
The diversity of neighborhoods is also a huge plus. From the luxurious high society feel of Georgetown to the charming college bars of Adams Morgan to the power brokers lunching around the Capitol and Dupont Circle, DC is the center of it all.
The National Mall, which includes museums and monuments galore, is DC’s largest attraction, drawing millions of visitors every year. The Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument and the reflecting pool are incredibly beautiful and one of the most iconic sites in the United States. The Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History and the Air and Space Museum also draw many visitors to the mall, while the National Portrait Gallery in Chinatown offers up some historical and notable art. Don’t forget about the International Spy Museum— a favorite DC hotspot. And the Kennedy Center is a must for lovers of music and theater.
Sports fans will enjoy several great options. The Washington Nationals brought baseball back to the nation’s capital, but the iconic Baltimore Orioles are only a short trip up the Green Line. Watch the Wizard shoot some hoops and the Capitals tear up the ice at the Verizon Center. The Washington Redskins are a regional favorite, and the nearby Baltimore Ravens draw a sizable crowd as well!
