Washington DC – Overview 2

The main purpose of spending so much time on Washington DC during these past months has been to compile a cache of information, ready for spring trips, for which DC is famous.

People travel to DC then to see the famous Cherry Blossoms around the Tidal Basin and 8th graders come from throughout the nation, often on their first major trip, just before Graduation. It’s often to showcase how and where their government functions (along with historic places) any tourists coming now get some of the best weather of the year in the city.

See Part 1 Washington Sights .

This time, I’m adding more Arts, Cultural and Historic venues (in addition to the fabulous government sites, Smithsonian Science Museums and Kennedy Center in Part 1).

___ The Corcoran Gallery
___ The Freer Gallery of Art (Smithsonian Asian Arts Museum)
___ The National Museum for Women In The Arts
