    Monuments and Memorials

    No visit to Washington, D.C. is complete without a stop at the Lincoln Memorial. Located at the western end of the National Mall, the Lincoln Memorial is the most-visited site in that area. Your family can see the 19-foot tall Lincoln statue 24/7/365, but early morning and evening are the best times to visit. Afterward, bring your family to pay their respects at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and the World War II Memorial.

    The White House

    You can book a tour inside the White House, but these must be arranged well in advance. If this is a must on your itinerary, you’ll need to contact your congressional representative’s office up to six months in advance. Many families prefer to simply stroll by and take pictures outside the gates, and then visit the nearby White House Visitor Center. It’s open seven days per week, with free admission.

    Smithsonian’s National Zoo

    Zoos are always a popular choice for families with young children, and the National Zoo is a particularly memorable destination. See the giant pandas, kiwi chicks, and the Great Cats exhibit. The Small Mammal House features cute sand cats, banded mongoose, and black howler monkeys.

    National Air & Space Museum

    Located on Independence Ave. at the National Mall, this popular attraction offers free admission to the museum. Pay a small fee for tickets to the planetarium shows. This museum regularly has exhibits that are guaranteed to capture your children’s attention, including the 1903 Wright Flyer and the Apollo 11 Command Module Columbia.
