The White House

Washington D.C. is the political capital of the U.S. We all know that. What you may not know is how rich D.C. is with history and culture. Home to some of the best museums and architecturally rich structures in the world, this small town is more than a home to Congress and the White House. It offers extraordinary 200-year-old hotels, restaurants, meeting centers, and so much to do that it'll take numerous visits to see it all.

While we've boasted of the rich culture many of the East Coast states possess throughout this directory, D.C. is the one place that provides many of the museums that clearly demonstrate how this country was built, how it prospered, and how it suffered to get to where it is today. Bring a hanky. Some of it is devastating. One can easily step back in time and feel as if they were there while visiting this unique city. 

Easy access to New York, Philadelphia, and other major East Coast cities, D.C. is ideal for combining an East Coast business trip with learning about world history and all those who sacrificed or were sacrificed so that we could be free. No wonder so many of the nation's schools pick D.C. as the number one choice for a field trip. Add yourself to the list. D.C. is an absolute must to visit, if only once.
