I don't have any idea what it is like to actually live in D.C., however it is an excellent city to visit! I went there once years ago with a group of people for a week visit. The destination was decided upon by a majority vote and I was not one of the people whom voted for D.C. I thought for sure that the trip was going to be completely boring. When I thought D.C. I thought politics and politics bored me then, and still do now. However, I had the time of my life while I was there! I was there during the spring time. There were many street vendors, which gave the place a festive feel/atmosphere I think. Also we took a night tour that through Georgetown that was fabulous! Anyway, I just wanted to say I had a blast while I was there!

I went to NYC 4 summers in a row. I still miss going to NYC but DC is so much closer and more affordable. I think DC is the new NYC for me. I love walking around cities with buildings and DC is some what a small cleaner NYC.

I've been to NYC 3 times for baseball games and 2 times for more tourist type stuff. I'll probably combine the two next time I go as I've already seen most of the things I want to see.

The only thing keeping me from going to DC more is not having anybody to go with.

DC is very beautiful -- possibly the world's largest collection of museums, most of them free of charge, and more of them continually being added. The beautiful parklands and vistas along both the DC and VA sides of the Potomac River and the numerous Memorials and statues. The elegant and cosmopolitan Embassy Row area adjoining America's largest urban green park (Rock Creek Park) --and not far away, the charming colonial, walkable and artsy old-town Alexandria, Georgetown, and Annapolis. DC also boasts two of the world's ten largest church buildings. One of the most highly-educated populations in America. The nation's largest skiing club and largest bicycle club (unless the statistics have changed). The nation's second busiest subway system. And within a couple hours of the mountains and the ocean.
