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.

The Luther Place Memorial Church is located on Thomas Circle and Vermont Avenue. Visitors to Thomas Circle/14 Street area should add the Luther Place into the agenda. According to the history, this church was built as a memorial to peace and reconciliation after the Civil War and to advocate for African American in general. The building has an elegant look of Gothic architecture and the inside has a warm look of pews and nicely built windows. It is also an historic landmark of Logan Circle historical area and is part of the self-guided tour. Visitors should also visit other historical buildings around Logan Circle to get the feeling of the old rich African American of Washington D.C.

We went by that church on our way to Embassy Row in DC last week and absolutely loved it. This Church is unique in comparison to other churches in the area with the red stone work all around. Very pretty and worth a few pictures!

If you are crossing Thomas Circle to 14th street, this church will kept you attention. It has a nice statue of Martin Luther on their grounds just in front of the church's entrance. It was founded in 1873 as a memorial to peace and reconciliation following the Civil War. Since the beginning it was based on the idea that the community should live together harmoniously. It played an important role in the civil rights. During the 1968 riots, after the murder of Martin Luther King, the church was kept open and sheltered, fed and clothed more than 10,000 people. And from the late 70's to nowadays it helps homeless people through an amazing organization called N Street Village (just across the street).
