“A somber but touching place that pays tribute to our fallen heros. You can observe the Changing of the Guards at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier as well as JFK. If you have family or friends interred there, you can find their location at the visitor center.”

“Often missed since it's not down by all the other tourist sites. Beautiful Gothic style cathedral (one of the largest in the world) with pieces of Americana embedded throughout (e.g. a piece of the moon from Apollo 11 embedded in the stained glass, Darth Vader as a gargoyle, and more!). Highly encourage taking a tour!”

Synagogue
“The only venue on this list that also happens to be a house of worship, Sixth & I maintains its identity as a multi-denominational synagogue while doubling as a community center and space for the arts. Standing on the eponymous corner in Northwest Washington DC since 1908, Sixth & I has served as a hub for spiritual life in the capital for over a century -- it was an African Methodist Episcopal church from 1945 until 2002 -- and continues to foster thoughtful discussions and cultural events through its programming. Matisyahu was the first contemporary artist to perform at the venue, and they have continued to book outstanding talent in their stunning historical space.”
