Plan Your Washington, D.C. Vacation

Washington is a monumental city. In the middle of traffic circles, on tiny slivers of park, and at street corners and intersections, you find statues, plaques, and simple blocks of marble honoring the generals, artists, and statesmen who helped shape the nation. Of these tributes, the greatest and grandest are clustered west of the Mall on ground reclaimed from the marshy flats of the Potomac—which also happens to be the location of Washington's most striking display of cherry trees.
