Major Points of Interest
The capital of the USA has dozens of places worth visiting but the best is the Smithsonian Institution, which is a complex of multiple museums scattered throughout Washington DC, mainly between Third and Fourteenth Streets. And of course, no one should miss a tour of the US Capitol Building, the White House and the Supreme Court.
One of the breakout sports in Washington is football, or soccer for Americans, with DC United being one of the best teams in the MLS. The Washington Redskins, however, are what Americans know as footballers. The Redskins regularly sell out the 50,000-seat stadium FedEx Field. Meanwhile the Verizon Center is home to both the Washington Capitals ice hockey team and the Washington Wizards basketball team.
