#25: Washington D.C.
Visiting D.C. is as American as apple pie, so get your comfortable walking shoes on and get ready to see some of the most iconic tourist attractions in the country. Enjoy the classics first, like the Washington Monument (pictured), Jefferson Memorial, Lincoln Memorial and Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall. When monument fatigue sets in, head to the Smithsonian to see everything from diamonds to spaceships. And the best part? Admission is free!
Want to catch a glimpse of the President? Although Mr. and Mrs. Obama are frequently seen out and about town, getting to the White House takes a little more planning, but it’s still free. For groups of 10 people or more, requests can be made to arrange a tour up to six months in advance. Say hi for us!
Don’t miss: While you’re in Reagan National Airport (photo above), check out Five Guys Famous Burgers and Fries. Proof that airport cuisine can be delicious!
