Washington DC Monuments by Moonlight Tour by Trolley

Washington DC looks spectacular when lit up at night, so make the most of your time in the city by going on an evening tour on an open-air trolley. Going on an organized tour saves time working out local public transport, and means you can learn along the way through guide commentary. Tick off lots of top landmarks such as the Lincoln Memorial, the White House, the Washington Memorial, and more.

Whenever you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life, this is the place to go! I go here when i want to escape and meditate to become one with nature.

Have lived in the area for 15+ yrs and finally went to check it out for the first time. It's MASSIVE. Tons of (free) parking and a great activity for all ages especially during COVID. Have public (clean) bathrooms. Pack snacks, water or food for a picnic. Dog friendly. Lots of trees with shade so bring blankets, chairs, books, etc. Great spot to meet up with friends, catch up with family, open space for kids to run, etc. Can spend the entire day here. Walking paths galore. There is a bald eagle nest/cam that is massive on the property. A great day overall. Highly recommend

It was a cold day and so the arboretum was packed. It was worth the stop and there were many beautiful plants. Fun stuff to do outside as well. Great place for children.

OK, so this can be hard to get to. Even by car, our GPS lead us astray. However, once we arrived it was so worth it. Don't forget to see the bonsai and the original steps/pillars from the capitol building. Bring a picnic.

We were pleasantly surprised that the Bonzais are out for display because of the warmer weather we had this March. Every tree is a work of art and every tree has its own story. My favorite is the Japaese Pine from Hiroshima. It had been in training since 1625! The Chinese Pavillion houses some of the most beautiful miniature forests. The Capitol Columns are worth hiking to. So are the beautiful Camellias and Hellebores. Can't wait to see the blooming dogwoods in a couple of weeks.
