What's Covered? Get to Know Washington, D.C. :  No trip to our nation's capitol would be complete without a trip to The Mall. This expanse of green is at the heart of D.C., stretching from the Capitol to the Washington Monument and is lined by some of America's finest museums. D.C.'s most famous monuments are concentrated west of the Mall and along the Tidal Basin.

In the Capitol Hill area (dominated by the Capitol itself along with the Supreme Court and the Library of Congress), follow Hill staffers to find restaurants, bars, and a thriving outdoor market. In addition to the White House, the White House Area and Foggy Bottom is the home of George Washington University and offers great art at the Corcoran and Renwick galleries as well as performance at the Kennedy Center.

Don't miss Downtown's many attractions including Ford's Theater, the International Spy Museum, the National Portrait Gallery, and the American Art Museum. By night, crowds head to the Verizon Center, Chinatown's restaurants, and movie theaters. Georgetown, the capital's wealthiest neighborhood, is great for strolling, shopping, and partying.

Dupont Circle is a hub of fashionable restaurants, shops, and is also home to the most visible segment of the gay community. Visit the Kalorama neighborhood for an enclave of embassies, luxurious homes, and small museums. Looking for something more offbeat? Head to Adams Morgan, one of D.C.'s most ethnically diverse neighborhoods, for restaurants, shops, and happening nightlife. The U Street Corridor also offers trendy boutiques and hip eateries. And don't forget to check out the Upper Northwest. This mostly residential swath of D.C. houses two must-see attractions: the National Cathedral and the National Zoo.
