Join me for a tour of Washington DC, the capital of the United States of America!

As an American, and former long time resident of the neighboring state of Maryland, I thought I had seen the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, White House, US Capitol, Smithsonian Museums, and National Mall enough times already. But it hadn’t been since field trips as an elementary school kid that I caught a proper glimpse of these beautiful DC memorials, and I was happy to appreciate them all again as an adult giving you this quick Washington DC Tour.

For this trip I’m centered mainly around the National Mall, which is the grassy area in between many of these structures and museums. The National Mall is almost two miles long and runs from the Lincoln Memorial to the US Capitol Building. It seemed like a great place to hang out and visit, or simply jog through on a regular evening.

These two days in DC in the spring were all about crazy lighting, which actually led to some amazing photos with interesting skies. The moral of the story, don’t be afraid if it’s ‘almost’ raining, you might get some of the best camera shots that way!

The Washington Monument was also quite striking in the different variations of light. I was able to see in from all angles in the day, at night, in the sunshine, the rain, and even during some an unexpected lightning storm!

Washington Monument

It really is a remarkable structure! Dedicated to George Washington, the first President of the United States. Unfortunately it was closed for renovation until 2019. Otherwise I would have been able to head to the top and see even MORE of Washington DC.
