Get up close to history and become a part of it with moments you’ll remember the rest of your life.
Since George Washington selected this “District” for his democracy, it’s become an archive to our nation. This is the only city where you can see the United States’ founding documents, the flag that inspired an anthem and memorials to the iconic Americans who've shaped our history. And when you go beyond the National Mall, you’ll encounter more awe-inspiring stories, too, like one of the nation's oldest neighborhoods, U Street's past as "Black Broadway" and much more. Experience the past when you experience DC.
