Zoo
“Awesome place to visit with kids / family. The zoo is free. And while it isn't too large, there are plenty of wonderful animals to observe. Notably the pandas are probably the most popular attractions. ”

Government building
“You can tour the White House, the iconic home of America’s president, by scheduling a visit in advance. Even if you are unable to schedule a visit, walk around to the back to get a closer view of the building.”

Government Building
“The White House is the official residence and workplace of the President of the United States. It is located at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW in Washington, D.C. and has been the residence of every U.S. President since John Adams in 1800. ”

Cemetery
“Beautiful and monumental cemetery. You can witness the changing of the guard every hour. Check times in advance. If you come too late for the cherry blossoms, this is the next best spot since the cherry blossoms here bloom later than the ones along the tidal basin”

Shopping Mall
“only 12 minutes' walk. Very convenient location for shopping at the mall, the food court has lots of choices while there are many other restaurants on the first floor. It is also close to stores like Harris Teeter groceries, Bestbuy, Mashal and many others.”

Neighbourhood
“A charming area with Federal-style architecture, cobblestone streets and fashion and design shops. The dining scene is defined by upmarket restaurants and waterfront seafood spots, while nightlife spans boisterous college bars, traditional taverns and intimate live music lounges. Georgetown Waterfront Park has a riverside promenade and gardens, and there's a bike path along the C&O Canal.”

History Museum
“The NMAAHC is a must-see! Get up early Saturday morning and be in line by 10 AM (park at the Reagan Building using Parking Panda App). Start on the bottom floor! Do not start at the top floor, start at the bottom floor, but get there early b/c the elevator makes the line long. Make sure you eat lunch at the cafe! Wear the most comfortable shoes you have on this trip; you will thank me later!”

Park
“Whether it’s North America’s longest cascading fountain or the vibrant drum circle that gathers every Sunday, there’s plenty to capture at Meridian Hill Park in Columbia Heights. The terrazzo walls will transport you (and your followers) from the nation’s capital to a European city with just one photograph!”

Park
“DC may be known for its monuments and memorials, but the city's waterfronts also offer plenty to see and photograph. The District’s two rivers, the Potomac and the Anacostia, shine brightly once the warm weather of summer settles on the nation's capital, setting the scene for the perfect active 'gram.”

Landmark
“I occasionally go here at night, sit on the steps, and just observe the reflection pool along with the Washington Monument in the night sky. I honestly think the experience is better at night. There’s usually college aged adults and small groups of tourists around even at 1am. ”
