My favorite place in D.C. is the National Cathedral:
Religion aside, this building is in my opinion the most beautiful in the entire district. Its gothic archetecture, stained glass windows, and cobblestone courtyards seem ancient, but the National Cathedral was completed in (get this) 1990. It took over 80 years to construct, and the results are just stunning.
The gardens surrounding the cathedral are my favorite place to go when I feel like escaping city life. You can sit on the benches outside and feel like you’re in Paris near the Seine.
Do you have a favorite place in DC that I should know of? Do tell!
