  • The river see you in various parts of the city. If you are by the Lincoln Memorial, it is a good site. Visiting Arlington you cross a bridge and of course the Potomac River. Large flow and quite wide. In USA they care much for rivers and normally they are clean. An example to the world.

Where to stay in Washington DC

Most visitors to Washington, D.C., end up in the East End, the old downtown district containing most of the city's major cultural attractions. For a more authentic Washingtonian experience, consider staying at a smaller hotel just a little north or east of this busy area. Neighborhoods outside downtown offer less expensive accommodations and affordable street parking, as well as opportunities to meet more locals and fewer tourists. Alternatively, try a hotel in Georgetown, packed with high-end shops and Colonial architecture.
