Washington DC | Places to visit in Washington DC

Washington DC is founded after the American revolution as a set of the government of the newly independent country and was named to the first President and founding father of the United States of America, George Washington.   

We stopover to DC before we flew and still have time to walk around. We ride a cab to go to a famous landmark around the downtown area and first stop at Lincoln Memorial. Though was built to honor the 16th president of the United States Abraham Lincoln died by assassination but his memories remain.
