You can’t go to Washington, D.C. without visiting some of its outstanding museums. If you have little time, make sure to at least see the Lincoln Memorial, arguable one of the most recognizable landmarks in the entire country. It was built to resemble a Greek temple. It has 36 Doric columns, one for each state at the time of Lincoln’s death.
