District of Columbia

Back in 2008 I took a trip to Washington D.C. This was my first trip to the Nation’s Capital. This was a very brief trip and I tried to get in as much sightseeing as possible in a very short time.

Most attractions in and around the National Mall are free but some do require tickets or payment to enter. Please check to see which ones are free or require payment before going so you are not left wondering where to go once you are there.

The Metro is fairly inexpensive and very easy to use. The Metro can be used to get to pretty much anywhere in and around the National Mall and other outer areas of D.C. If you find it confusing, there are attendants that are very helpful and will direct you accordingly.

On to the pictures.

    • Thanks Heather. If you get the chance to go please do. Most of the attractions are free along the National Mall area so you would basically just need to pay for hotel and food. Some attractions do require tickets or payment so check to see which ones are free.

  1. Have to admit, Terence, that when I saw the panda shot by itself, I thought you were in China!! Yes, we are proud of our zoos. If you want more, visit the NC Zoo in Asheboro; it’s WONDERFUL! Thanks as well for liking my post “Watering Hole” – the birds are a joy to have around.

    • Thanks for visiting. Glad you like the pics. I would love to go to China but never had the opportunity. One day hopefully. I just got into birding and it’s great watching all the different species dropping by at the feeder. Great enjoyment in watching them.
