- The National Gallery of Art: The National Gallery has so many amazing exhibits. It's a huge museum, so I recommending setting aside at least 3 hours for checking it out.
- The Holocaust Museum: Powerful, sobering and inspiring- everyone who visits DC should take time to visit the Holocaust Museum.
- The Botanic Gardens: Only a few minutes from the Capitol, I occasionally took my lunch break at the Gardens. The garden's are vibrant and beautiful, and the gardeners are friendly, knowledgeable, nerdy and all around wonderful.
- The American Indian Museum: Not only do you learn a lot from the exhibits, you'll eat some of the best food in DC at the museum cafeteria.
