Obviously the United States capitol has a lot more than 6 things to see. The Dream City Trip series is about sharing my top six things. If you would like a more detailed list of all the wonderful things some of these great cities have to offer, check out details here. There are so many things to learn in Washington, but the one thing I want to know more than anything else is this: did the founding fathers design D.C. with freemason imagery?
- U.S. Botanic Garden: If you’ve been following this series, you’ll know I love the botanic gardens. This is our national botanic garden and it is home to a variety of species including rare and endangered species. Visiting this site may offer us the only opportunity to see some of God’s most beautiful plants.
- Capitol: Going to the capitol would be awesome because it has photos of historically significant laws, galleries of congressional artifacts, and a timeline of our congress. I’d also love the opportunity to meet my representatives.
- Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle: Matthew is the patron saint of civil servants so I think it would be very important to visit this cathedral to pray for our country’s leaders. It’s built in a beautiful renaissance Romanesque revival style and the Kennedy’s worshipped our Lord there. How cool is that?
- White House: I wonder what I would say if I was able to meet the President of the United States? The White House is called the people’s house, I’m one of the people and would like a chance to walk around, see the art and absorb the history.
- Smithsonian Institute: Is the Smithsonian Institute federally funded? It has so many cool things to see like African and Native American artifacts. Plus it has a natural history museum.
- National Mall: The National Mall is home to the FDR, Lincoln, MLK, and Washington Memorials. Which one of these doesn’t belong? It also has memorials for WWI, WWII, and Vietnam wars highlighting the courage and the sacrifice of heroes.
