Washington, D.C. travel tips

1) Take a monumenting down the Washington National Mall

Locals call the walk through the main sights of Washington monumenting. The Jefferson Memorial, the Martin Luther King Memorial, the George Mason Memorial, and the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial are united in National Mall and Memorial Parks. All the memorials are within walking distance.

2) Take a break from the sights at Lincoln Park, Washington DC's largest Capitol Hill park

Tired of wandering Washington's famous sites, relax at Lincoln Park. There are two playgrounds for small children, a grassy perimeter, and a central lawn. The park houses the Abraham Lincoln Freedom Memorial and the memorial to Mary McLeod Bethune, African American rights activist and gender equality activist.

3) When shopping in Washington DC, remember the 5% additional tax

You can’t leave the USA without shopping. The main thing is not to forget about taxes, which are about 5% in this state, so the price at the checkout will be higher than the one on the price tag, which shouldn’t surprise you.
