5 Places to Visit While in Washington D.C. for .NEXT
This June, our .NEXT conference will take place in Washington D.C. We are excited to be there, and it will be my first time in the capital. In addition to the cool technical sessions, Washington D.C. is a beautiful place and if you are staying a few extra days, here are a few spots you might want to check out and enjoy.
U.S. Capitol and the Library of Congress Arguably the most magnificent building in Washington, the U.S. Capitol Building is where visitors go to witness politics in action. Inside, members of both houses of Congress debate and create national policy and law, while visitors explore the building's north and south wings and circular centerpiece: the Rotunda.
Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History With more than 126 million artifacts on display, this robust Smithsonian museum attracts millions of visitors each year. Some of the museum's highlights include tarantula feedings in the O. Orkin Insect Zoo and the replicas of giant whales and other marine life in the 23,000-square-foot Sant Ocean Hall.
The White House and the Washington Monument At 555 feet and 5 inches, the Washington Monument (at its completion in 1884) was the tallest structure in the world. And nowadays, you can ride one of the Monument's glass-encased elevators to the top observation deck to enjoy 360-degree views of the city.
Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum The 1903 Wright Flyer, the Ryan NYP Spirit of St. Louis, and the Apollo 11 Command Module Columbia are just a few of the historic firsts on display at the Museum in Washington, DC. Explore thematic exhibitions on the history of aviation and spaceflight. Take in an IMAX film, planetarium show, or observe the Sun and nearby planets at our Public Observatory.
National Mall Visitors to Washington, D.C., won’t want to miss a stroll on the National Mall, a greenway that will take them past many of the capital’s important sites. Located downtown, the National Mall stretches on the west from the US Capitol building to the Potomac River and on the east from the Jefferson Memorial to Constitution Avenue.
