I would recommend seeing Maya Lin's Vietnam Veteran's Memorial. Here is what she had to say about the war:

“the politics had eclipsed the veterans, their service and their lives.”


The memorial is comprised of three components: the Wall of names, the Three Servicemen Statue and Flagpole, and the Vietnam Women's Memorial.

Chinatown, Washington, D.C.

This neighborhood developed in the 1930s and has a fascinating history. It's located east of downtown, and has a handful of ethnic Chinese and Asian restaurants. Chinese businesses are located along H and I streets and between 5th and 8th streets. I would recommend you see the Friendship Arch, which is a gate built over H and 7th Streets. It makes for some nice photo ops.

The easiest way to get to Chinatown is to take the metro and get off at the Gallery Place-Chinatown station.

Other attractions I recommend are:

Botanical Gardens

National Air and Space Museum

National Gallery of Art

Newseum & Freedom Park

Smithsonian Institution

Take a day or two to walk the whole section known as "The Mall," it has all of the museums which are free and you can see most of the federal buildings while on that strip. Other than that, I know nothing of D.C.
