“Peaceful respite in DC”
Reviewed January 14, 2007

I just got back from DC and the botanic gardens are gorgeous. There is a catwalk among the treetops, fountains, and beautiful exotic plants. Kids would love this place too. It was crowded when I was there, but it still felt peacful. Plenty of benches among the greenery on which to relax. You feel like you're in the middle of a rain forest, not DC!
