WASHINGTON, DC HIGHLIGHTS:
Attractions to see on the Red Map DC include The White House, The Capitol, the National Archives, along with the beautiful and awe-inspiring Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials and the elegant Washington Monument. The art in Washington DC is second to none, so be sure to see the Old-Masters of the National Gallery and The Phillips Collection. Historically speaking, DC's Holocaust Museum changed the way museum-goers experienced this kind of one-subject institution - it is not to be missed. Make time to see the vast collections of the Smithsonian Museums which includes the Air & Space Museum, the venerable Hirshhorn Museum and the Sackler Gallery. If it's spring, try to time your vacation to see the dazzling DC Cherry Blossom Festival that happens along the Tidal Basin. Remember that the Folger Library is one of the world s great repositories of William Shakespeare's papers. There's too much to mention here, but consider seeing Ford's Theatre and the Peterson House (where Lincoln was assassinated and later died) the sobering Arlington Cemetery and the World War II Memorial. The guide includes an extensive list of US government offices and departments.
