DC is always nice in the spring with
the cherry blossoms.
National Zoo in Washington DC is always great for animals.
Mall. They call the place where the
Monuments and the Smithsonian
museums are the mall. Entrance is free to the museums.
Washington, Lincoln, Jefferson, WWII
Memorial and Vietnam Memorial.
White House and Nations Capital.
This area is very big, with a lot to
photograph. We got there in the
morning and walked till our feet
were about to fall off. From the monuments, old buildings, and museums, you could spend months here
with a camera. I found it best to ride the subway downtown.
I would start at the Capital and walk down the right side of the Mall
photographing along the way. Then visit any museum you want to see on
the way back. The Natural Science museum is good, the Horticulture
building and shoot flower pictures is good. The next day start at the
other end by the Lincoln or Jefferson Memorial, visit the
Vietnam War and Roosevelt memorials, and walk toward the Washington
Monument. Go back the next day if you missed the best light on anything.
Visiting the FBI building, the Zoo, or the Air and Space Museum can take most
of a day. I think it would takes 6 or 7 days to see most of the sights.
Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens is a small National Park on the East Side
of Washington. They have flowers like lotus and water lilies. Also a
great place to find native butterflies and dragonflies.
July 4th fireworks displays is great. There are a number of great locations, but
plan on being in position early and if possible, use mass tansit (Metro)
to get there. Traffic and parking will be a killer! The fireworks are
launched from the National Mall, so they are visible from virtually
anyplace in DC or the Virginia shoreline of the Potomac River. You
might decide what building you want in the foreground or water
Best view overall is from the steps of the
The Lincoln Memorial is at the other end of the Mall. From here you'll
get the Washington Monument, the reflecting pool, the Washington
Monument and the Capital dome.
Lincoln and Jefferson memorials and the reflections in the ponds at night
