See the White House

Washington D.C. is especially known for being home to the White House, where the President of the United States rules the country daily. All in all, you will find many important buildings in Washington D.C. Besides the White House, you will find the Supreme Court, the United States Department of State, and in a suburb of the city, you will find the United States Department of Defense’s famous building, The Pentagon. If you plan your day thoroughly, it is possible to see almost all of the buildings that govern the entire U.S. on a daily basis. It is also possible to get a tour of the White House – this does not mean that you will get to meet the president, but it is the closest you will get.

The Washington Monument

It is also in Washington D.C. that you will find the Washington Monument. The tall, pointed obelisk is a famous, American symbol. The Washington Monument is the place where millions of Americans protested against the Vietnam War, and where millions upon millions watched the speech of Martin Luther King, and where many other events like this have taken place. From pop culture, the monument is particularly known as the place where Forrest Gump, in the movie of the same name, suddenly has to give a speech to millions of hippies.

The Smithsonian Institute

A place that you ought to pay a visit to when you get to Washington D.C., is the Smithsonian Institute. First and foremost, the institute is an educational institution. Besides this, you can also find a very comprehensive museum in the building. The museum is divided into many sub-museums, such as the National Museum of American History and the Smithsonian Art Museum. When you are done with all of the many museums, there is even a large zoo that you can visit. The Smithsonian’s National Zoological Park is one of the oldest zoos in the U.S., and was founded back in 1889. The zoo has a little over 2,000 animals from a little more than 400 different species. There is both typical, American animals, as well as animals from all over the world.

Memorials in Washington D.C.

To many Americans, Washington D.C. is the logical place to erect memorials. This is also the reason why you will find three of the world’s most famous memorials there. The first one is the Lincoln Memorial, which was finished in 1922. It honors the 16th President of the United States, and perhaps the most famous one, Abraham Lincoln. You can also see the Korean War Veterans Memorial. On this memorial, you will find the statement: “Freedom is not free.” Lastly, the National World War II Memorial lies northwest of the Lincoln Memorial. This memorial consists of 56 pillars that creates a circle around an impressive fountain. This is also the latest memorial, which was opened in 2004, and it honors the Americans who died during the Second World War.
