Welcome to the State of Washington D.C.

Washington DC is always nice in the spring with the cherry blossoms.

National Zoo in Washington DC is always great for animals.

Mall.  They call the place where the Monuments and the Smithsonian museums are the mall.  Entrance is free to the museums.  Washington, Lincoln, Jefferson, WWII Memorial and Vietnam Memorial.  White House and Nations Capital.  This area is very big, with a lot to photograph.  We got there in the morning and walked till our feet were about to fall off.  From the monuments, old buildings, and museums, you could spend months here with a camera.  I found it best to ride the subway downtown.  I would start at the Capital and walk down the right side of the Mall photographing along the way.  Then visit any museum you want to see on the way back.  The Natural Science museum is good, the Horticulture building and shoot flower pictures is good.  The next day start at the other end by the Lincoln or Jefferson Memorial, visit the Vietnam War and Roosevelt memorials, and walk toward the Washington Monument.  Go back the next day if you missed the best light on anything.

Visiting the FBI building, the Zoo, or the Air and Space Museum can take most of a day.  I think it would takes 6 or 7 days to see most of the sights.

Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens is a small National Park on the East Side of Washington.  They have flowers like lotus and water lilies.  Also a great place to find native butterflies and dragonflies.

July 4th fireworks displays is great. There are a number of great locations, but plan on being in position early and if possible, use mass tansit (Metro) to get there. Traffic and parking will be a killer!  The fireworks are launched from the National Mall, so they are visible from virtually anyplace in DC or the Virginia shoreline of the Potomac River.  You might decide what building you want in the foreground or water reflections.

Brookside Gardens

Best photos

Best view overall is from the steps of the Capitol building.

The Lincoln Memorial is at the other end of the Mall. From here you'll get the Washington Monument, the reflecting pool, the Washington Monument and the Capital dome.
