The Ultimate Washington Wonders List

Washington is not only the political heart of the United States of America, but a thriving world-class metropolis replete with vast museums, diverse and ecclectic neighborhoods, a buzzing restaurant scene and stunning classical architecture. Home to 6,280,487 people (9,814,928 when Baltimore is included), Washington is a tourist's dream: large yet inviting, busy yet quaint, and with enough activities to keep you busy for weeks.
This list compiles 100 of Washington's greatest sights: from the chambers of the Supreme Court to the cupcakes of Georgetown, from the natural beauty of Great Falls Park to the colonial charms of Alexandria, from colonial heritage sites like Mount Vernon to new up-and-coming areas like NoMa, Atlas and Navy Yard. Washington D.C. is a microcosm of the nation at large, and it is an absolute treat to discover the many layers that make up this most powerful of world cities.
