Yes, Washington D.C. is home to streets and avenues of Greco-Roman inspired architecture, unrivaled (and free) museums and, of course, unique monuments, but it is the political presence you feel the most. This is the Superbowl stadium for every past or present player in the game of politics. The Mall serves as centre field, with Lincoln, Jefferson, the WWII and Vietnam Memorials on one end, reminding us of the past battles this city has seen, and Congress, confronting current issues, looming at the other end. In between, the White House stands ready to take the field while the Supreme Court sits back waiting to settle the inevitable skirmishes that arise. Surrounding them are the supporting players, the Treasury, The Library of Congress and all the various Departments that run every feasible aspect of public life. Meanwhile, Washington Cathedral stands ready to console the battered and bereaved.
All of this is clearly laid out for you on our STREETWISE Map Washington. Sites, whether political or not, are listed as well as hotels, transportation and parks. A separate inset of the Mall details each site. You can find relief from the political playoffs by getting outside of the city and into the bucolic region of the Mid-Atlantic, as seen on the Washington DC Area map. Our pocket size map of Washington D.C. is laminated for durability and accordion folding for effortless use.
