Some of the highlights in the US capital include the Museum of African American History and Culture and the Library of Congress
Washington DC is probably not the first place that comes to mind when planning an American holiday. The bright lights of New York City appeal to a lot more tourists, but make no mistake: DC is far from the tedious, suits-filled enclave you might expect from White House-set series. Visitors to the US capital will instead find a diverse metropolis packed with everything from world-class museums and galleries to buzzy restaurants and boutique shopping.
