Get Dazzled in Washington D.C.

The thing about Washington DC is that it dazzles. It makes your time, no matter how short or long, in the city count. There are cool and hip farmers markets such as 14th & Kennedy Street Farmers Market and Adams Morgan Farmers Market. Stroll around and find your way in Smithsonian museums. Hop on a double-decker bus to have a sweeping summary of the city’s past and present: the momuments, the Capitol, and the memorial parks. Whether you are in a hurry or you prefer taking things slow, Washington DC can wash off your worries.
