Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation

Considered one of the country’s top tourist destinations, Washington, DC has no shortage of interesting activities to partake in. Staples such as the Capitol Building, the Washington Monument, and the Lincoln Memorial are always worth a visit. Another thing the city is known for is its world-famous museums — and there are plenty. Perhaps none are more celebrated than the Smithsonian museums, including the following:

  • The National Museum of American History
  • The National Museum of the American Indian
  • The National Museum of African American History and Culture
  • The National Air and Space Museum
  • The Smithsonian American Art Museum

One could feasibly spend days or even weeks enjoying the sights of the city barely spending a dime!

Speaking of the outdoors, Washington, DC’s annual Cherry Blossom Festival is an event not to be missed. Honoring the gift of Japanese cherry trees from Tokyo City’s Mayor Yukio Ozaki in 1912, the festival begins yearly around mid-March and often draws over 700,000 people to view the spring bloom of the cherry blossoms and partake in the many scheduled events, including an adjacent kite festival, art exhibits, and celebrations of Japanese culture and history.
