Washington, D.C. travel tips

1) Feel the spirit of American patriotism at Mount Vernon Estate, 24 km from Washington

The family estate of the first President of the United States, George Washington, is located by the Potomac River. The beautiful mansion has remained in its original form, surrounded by picturesque landscapes. It takes only about 20 minutes to drive from downtown Washington to the mansion.

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.
