Washington DC weekend – 2017

Washington D.C. Featured Image

A few photos from a long weekend in DC. Stayed in an AirBnB with a 10 minutes walk to the US Capitol building. Zoomed through many of the Smithsonian museums, and walked to many of the monuments. There is much more to see, and will need to return in the future.
