Washington DC

In a lot of ways, visiting Washington, D.C. is a lot like visiting Vegas.  Lots to do, lots to see.  And lots of walking.  The museums are so large, that like the giant casinos in Vegas, distances can be deceiving.  But unlike Vegas, once you get inside there are no chairs or free drinks.  Just more walking.  But then Vegas doesn't have the Hope Diamond.  Or paintings by da Vinci, Michelangelo and Botticelli.  Or sculptures by Rodin and Degas.  Or the Wright Flyer and the Spirit of St. Louis.  Or the Apollo 11 capsule.  Or Giant Panda Bears and Komodo Dragons.  Not to mention The White House, U.S. Capitol, Washington Monument, and the Jefferson and Lincoln Memorials, the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Emancipation Proclamation.  I could go on and on.  But you get the idea.  And the best part is that it is all free.  Sort of.  Technically, it's your tax dollars hard at work.  But you will never get such a return on your investment.
