Washington, DC is undoubtedly one of the most special places in the nation. It's home to a dizzying array of museums featuring the nation's greatest historical and art treasures. Its green spaces are plentiful and often full of fresh blooms.
And it's where the top politicians in the country, like Frank Underwood, come to work each day.
Come see Washington, DC and the neighboring city of Baltimore, MD as you never have before: through the eyes of the hit Netflix series House of Cards.
While you may not uncover a political scandal, you'll find plenty to see and fall in love with this fascinating area.
So sit back and enjoy this free guide. As Underwood said, "It's so refreshing to work with someone who'll throw a saddle on a gift horse rather than look it in the mouth."
Local Knowledge & Cool Perks
I grew up in North Carolina, one of the Original Thirteen, and less than a day's drive from Washington, DC. My history lessons, from earliest childhood into my adult years, were rooted in the events that happened in my nation and the leadership decisions that were made in its capital city.
Bearing that title since 1790, Washington, DC is more than a center of government. It is a place that is still making history, a place where presidents have lived and died. It is a city for learning, overflowing with fascinating museums and monuments. And it is a site of great beauty, expansive green spaces and abundant art.
Many of its main attractions are free of cost, making it accessible for a broad array of audiences. I myself have visited more than half a dozen times over the years and watched this special city continue to grow and offer new attractions.
I invite you to join me in my appreciation of Washington, DC and neighboring Baltimore. You'll have a blast!
