Washington DC attraction lies in its rich history!

By Alvin Avery Subscribe to RSS | January 24th 2012 | Views:

Many heads went into the planning of Washington DC with a proper rail structure and veins of roads to interlink all the places while the greatly varying architecture of the city makes it an ideal tourist location for anyone who is interested. American Institute of Architects in 2007 ranked 10 buildings in America's Favorite Architecture and the district of Colombia, of which Washington is a part of, boasts of 6 such buildings. These are the the White House, the Washington National Cathedral, the Thomas Jefferson Memorial, the United States Capital, the Lincoln Memorial and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. More architectural variety can be seen as a tourist goes downtown and notices buildings designed on Queen Anne, Châteauesque, Richardsonian Romanesque, Georgian revival, Beaux-Arts, and a number of Victorian styles. All great Washington DC Tours.

Not only that, the city is known for its tourist attraction because of the low crime rate and as of 2011, the murder count on annual basis declined as low as a number of 109, which is the lowest number since 1963 while violent and property crimes have decreased by half since 1993 and with a diversified and an ever growing economy rate with such a large population number, the controlled crime rate is considered an achievement.

A special visit to the Nation Mall area is imperative to get a feel of Washington's history and vibrancy for it is an open area national park it not only houses scriptures, monuments and statutes that honor public figures as well as military and civilian sacrifices within its boundaries, but also showcases presidential legacies and also hosts national events and regular public gatherings.

Important documents that hold historical values, like the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, American constitution are preserved in the National Archives while the largest library of the world, boasting of a collection of 147 million books is situation in 3 buildings on Capitol Hill. Visiting these places will not only show the contemporary places to the tourists, accompanied by tour guides, but instill a sense of history in its true colors.

Besides this, there are many museums that are maintained by the Smithsonian Institution that not only showcase American history related to all spheres but also educate on areas like the Asian and African art. Amongst these the National Air and Space Museum located on the National Mall, National Museum of Natural History, National Museum of African Art, National Museum of American History, National Museum of the American Indian and the Sackler and Freer galleries are some prominent names. What better way to see these historical sites than a Washington DC tour?

The city hides many pearls in its heart that make Washington DC sightseeing tours a memorable and informative experience when hosted by able tour guides.
