History and Culture

Everyone knows about the White House and the collection of historical statuses, but did you know that Washington DC also offers a ton of culture, education, and diversity? Washington DC hosts a lot of diversity not only in terms of nationalities and race but sexualities as well. So much so for the latter that in 2014 it was named the “Gayest City in America” by The Advocate.

Washington DC’s Secret Sauce

  • Their summers are for those that cannot stand heat with them being fairly mild, lacking humidity, and a lot of heat.
  • A collection of parks making this city more green than it appears to be to the outside eye. There are the Hillwood Gardens, Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens, and the Potomac Park just to start you off. 
  • Washington DC is full of history so check some out such as the Lincoln Memorial, Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, and of course the Capitol just to name a few.
  • Rock Creek Park is a great place for not only biking, and running but skating, and horseback riding too with it over 1. 800 acres of land.
