If you are planning a trip to Washington, D.C., and wondering what to do on your trip, know that the nations’ capital can boast a plethora of fascinating monuments, government buildings and excellent museums.

D.C is in fact one of the most affordable vacation destinations in the U.S. It's not hard to find reasonably priced flights to D.C., and many of ‘The District’s’ major attractions charge no admission.

For a great vacation, make sure you have a plan before you visit. Its a good idea to locate yourself in the East End of D.C. That way you are close to all of the capital’s biggest attractions. Also make sure your D.C hotel is close to a Metro stop. D.C. has an excellent public transport system and you can reach all parts of the capital by using the Metro.

Today, the National Zoo plays a pivotal role in protecting this species.
