The seat of the U.S. Federal government, Washington D.C. sits on the Potomac River, sandwiched between Maryland and Virginia states. Sites like the U.S. Capitol, White House, Lincoln Memorial, and the Washington Monument put the city among the top-visited places in the United States.
Plan a $500 trip to Washington DC: don't really think my family could get off that cheap in DC, but has some really cool tips on destinations, eateries, transportation and even a tip or two from locals.
Lincoln Memorial and Washington Monument. Washington DC USA. The 4 of us walked from the Lincoln Memorial to the Capital and then back to our motel. Man did I get a few blisters on my feet, but it was well worth it.
