Washington Monument and National WWII Memorial
I live near Washington, DC, and the area is full of National Parks, Monuments, Historic Sites, and Museums. Most of them are free to visitors. It is a wonderful place to spend a holiday if you have kids. The sites are managed by the National Park Service, which is celebrating its 100th birthday.

While I actually live just across the Potomac River from the US capital, Washington, D.C. is where I take my visitors. There is so much to do see and most of it is free. These are a few of my favorite places.
Squirrels are so mundane in the US, I am always surprised when I see tourists taking pictures of them. This, however, was the first squirrel I have seen draw a huge crowd. The squirrels have actually started to pose. For the record, I hate squirrels. They are rodents with bushy tales.
