Other must-sees of the city are The Washington Monument (the world's tallest predominantly stone structure and the world's tallest obelisk, standing at 554 feet) and The Lincoln Memorial (a larger-than-life statue of President Lincoln made of marble, granite, and bluestone gneiss) as well as the Smithsonian National Museum Of Natural History.

And if you’re craving a bit of greenery amongst all the imposing structures, in D.C., the city is filled with vibrant green spaces and hidden outdoor gems to stroll through or lounge the day away. For a gorgeous outdoor afternoon, head to the National Arboretum, a 400+ acre park that is home to over 10 gardens, including a stunning Bonsai and Penjing museum. Here, you’ll find an impressive collection of these miniature trees, some of which are hundreds of years old!
Try the Local Flavors of D.C. from the Best Boutique Hotels in Washington
Though Washington doesn’t have too many culinary creations to call its own, there are a few worth sniffing out while in town. Try one of Washington's local favorites, Half-Smokes. This D.C. dish combines ground pork, beef, and spices in a natural casing for an elevated take on a hot dog. Also make sure you taste saganaki (a Greek cheese dish fried in a pan), greasy locally-made burgers, and east coast blue crab. Another noteworthy dish is the city’s “super grilled cheese” which comes with cheese, bacon, tomato, and onion.
Museum Hop from the Top Washington Boutique Hotels
While staying at the best boutique hotels in Washington, you can’t miss the opportunity to visit The National Mall near the downtown area of D.C. Extending between the United States Capitol grounds to the east and the Washington Monument to the west lies the stunning landscaped park. This historically vital U.S. landmark contains and borders a number of museums of the Smithsonian Institution, art galleries, cultural institutions, memorials, sculptures, and statues.
Then, for a great day of museum strolling, head to The National Museum of African American History and Culture— a more recently finished Smithsonian Institution museum located on the National Mall in Washington.
While in Capitol Hill, plan a visit to the largest library in the world— the remarkable Library of Congress. Stepping foot inside this world-renowned landmark, you could easily spend an entire afternoon staring up at its striking ceiling and interiors and touring the imposing collection of universal research materials from all over the world. As the oldest federal cultural institution in the country, this grand library officially serves the United States Congress and is the de facto national library of the United States.
