Whether you’ve come to see the Star-Spangled Banner or to march in a political protest, it’s hard not to feel patriotic in our nation’s capital—a city filled with inspiring neoclassical architecture and public art. Washington’s treasure trove of museums ranges from the Air and Space Museum to museums of African Art or Women in the Arts. To antidote sightseeing overload, take a break in the city’s many parks or hang out in the funky, ethnic Adams-Morgan neighborhood.

The White House
