Things To Do In Washington

You’re probably familiar with the name Washington, DC. The capital city of the United States and there’s no lie in that, you can find all sorts of historically and culturally significant sights within it. Washington State offers both a bustling, hip urban scene and virtually untouched islands, bays, mountains, and parks. The state also has spirited displays and there are art galleries and museums all over the state.

There are other parts of the city. However, it's home to everything from quirky little shops and boutiques to sprawling wilderness reserves filled with waterfalls and hundred year -old oak trees.

 

It is more diverse than you think, so without talking much, let's start listing the places that will make you want to go to Washington.

It's time to see it through your eyes in real life. The National Mall is one of the big points of interest in Washington, DC. 

  • More than 167 million items, the Library of Congress is the second largest library in the world. Its shelves hold everything from fragile, to rare to contemporary records for popular music. It also brags maps, texts, photographs, paintings, and just about everything else that a nerd could want. Out of the three buildings that this library has, the most famous is probably the Thomas Jefferson Building with its elaborate, golden-toned central reading room, but all of them are worth a visit. Special events are often held at the library as well.

  • The fruits here are garden- fresh and the flowers here are full of fragrance, the jewellery stands shimmers when the sun rays fall on it and there you see the Eastern Market. Coming out of an old brick building as a hybrid indoor/outdoor shopping space, the Eastern Market is one of the oldest of its kind in Washington, DC.

  • Heurich House Museum looks just like some ordinary palace, but it's victorian-style architecture which includes unique passage, wide windows and spire-topped towers and everything that you can think of from an gothic style building. It was built by a European immigrant and it still now stands as a tribute for the turn-of-the-century.

  • Riverfront Park in Spokane is a great specimen of the way that various world fairs and expos have formed Washington all over the past.
