The capital of the United States is an open-air museum with monuments and memorial paying tribute to notable leaders. The greatest and grandest are located in the west of the Nation Mall, which also happens to be the location of the city’s most striking display of cherry trees. Don’t think, this city is only living in the past, is bursting with new restaurants and bars these are always emerging, upping the coolness factor in quarters from Capitol Hill to U Street.
When it comes to American art, Washington is home to unique venues such as the National Theatre, Kennedy Center and Folger Theatre. Not to mention that Jazz music also has a story here – in the early 20th century, locals like Duke Ellington went on the stages along U Street, where most of the atmospheric clubs still operate.br />
