The American Experience
Nearly everyone who comes to D.C. plans to stroll around the city’s famous National Mall and Memorial Parks. While the monuments, from the Lincoln to the Vietnam War memorials, are free anyway, you might not know that the National Park Service offers free tours at most of these sites. Park rangers will even take you on free walking and bike tours.
The 4th of July celebration in Washington D.C. is the biggest event of the year. And, the National Mall is a spectacular place to see the fireworks. The lights from the fireworks displays surround the Washington Monument and can seen from a great distance across the nation’s capital.
