In your lifetime, you want to see as much of this country as possible. You want to take weekend trips to the major cities like Chicago, San Francisco, New York City, and Los Angeles. You want to eat at their famous restaurants, see their beautiful buildings and colorful walls, and go on walking tours of their historical landmarks. But right now, you only have eyes for our nation's capital — aka, Washington D.C. — because you know that it's bursting with cherry blossoms, rich history, and so much inspiration. I don't blame you, and want to make sure you're prepared with some captions for Washington D.C. and sightseeing with your besties.
You are planning on seeing all of the monuments and museums, right? I sure hope so, because they're some of the best sights this destination has to offer. There's the Lincoln Memorial, the National Mall, and the Smithsonian Institution museums. The White House and the Supreme Court are of course must-sees, too.
You may plan on collecting brochures and guidebooks everywhere you go, taking in the beauty of the cherry blossoms when they're truly covering this historical city, and checking out the trendiest eateries this destination has to offer. Remember to take a bunch of pictures, despite following a very jam-packed itinerary.
Can I provide you with some captions for those pictures for when you inevitably want to post them on social media? Sweet! Just grab me a ticket to the National Gallery of Art as a "thank you," OK?
