Washington D.C.

 

Washington D.C., the nation's capital, is about 2 1/2 hours drive away from Philadelphia and we have been there a couple of times now. The city was planned by the French architect Pierre L'Enfant and his plan declared that no other building should reach higher than the Capitol building, so the skyline of DC is free of skyscrapers. The tallest structure is the 555 foot tall  Washington monument. It stands in front of the reflecting pool and there are some pictures below.
