D.C. has plenty to offer in regards to attractions, entertainment, and things to do.

Here is a list of a few of our favorites:

George Washington’s Mount Vernon – Visit the home of George and Martha Washington. Travel back in time and be submerged into the reality that was the Washington’s way of life. Make sure to stop at George Washington’s Distillery and Gristmill – In 1799, it was one of the largest whiskey distilleries in America.

Library of Congress – The Library of Congress is the largest library in the world, with millions of books, recordings, photographs, newspapers, maps and manuscripts in its collections. The Library is the main research arm of the U.S. Congress and the home of the U.S. Copyright Office.
