While known for its monuments and museums – including the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, the Smithsonian’s National Zoo, National Museum of African American History and Culture, National Air and Space Museum, National Museum of the American Indian, and Hirschhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden – the District is also known for its parks and pet-friendly accomodations. Most residents live within a 10-minute walk of a park – including Rock Creek Park, the oldest urban park in the country, popular for hiking and outdoor activities. DC’s Kennedy Center and Lincoln Theater offer world-class entertainment and theater. Top universities such as Georgetown, Howard, George Washington, and American (situated around Friendship’s campus) attract students and scholars from around the world. Public transportation includes metrorail, metrobus, electric scooters, Capital Bikeshare, and Car2Go. Enjoy DC’s varied and eclectic food scene, celebrate a win with the Washington Capitals and Washington Nationals, visit the century-old cherry blossoms or take a weekend trip to nearby Shenandoah Valley, Harper’s Ferry, or Annapolis.
