Washington, D.C. Reviews

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:
National Air and Space Museum
National Gallery of Art
Newseum & Freedom Park
