  • 1. The Best of Washington D.C. A Ruba Visual Travel Guide by Liz Stuckey
  • 2. US Capitol Building Book a tour of this amazing building in advance – try to get the earliest one possible to avoid lines!
  • 3. US Library of Congress Avoid lines by walking directly from the Capitol Building via the underground walkway. Be sure to check out the stained glass windows and the dome ceiling
  • 4. US Botanical Garden Even if plants aren’t really your thing – the 12,000 plants in this collection, as well as the building’s unique design, are worth a look
  • 5. Washington Monument One of the most recognizable monuments in the city, this is also a popular tourist destination, so if you want to go to the top be sure to buy your tickets early
  • 6. WWII Memorial One of the most beautiful memorials in the world, this one is dedicated to the 16 million people who served in WWII, the 400,000 who died, and all those who took supported troops from the home front
  • 7. Korean War Veterans Memorial The 19 soldiers in this memorial are mirrored in granite – creating 38 soldiers; a touching symbol for the 38 th longitudinal parallel that was established as the border between North and South Korea
  • 8. White House To tour the White House, submit a request through your congressman up to 6 months in advance. Be sure to submit your request early to have a shot. Tours are free but self guided
