Paragraphs

Buildings

We went to lots of buildings during this trip, mostly either museums or government buildings. We went to three different Smithsonian Museums, the Museum of American History, the Museum of Natural History, and the Air and Space Museum. We also went to the Marine Corps Museum and the Newseum. We toured many government buildings too. We went to the Capitol, the National Archives, outside the White House, the Denmark Embassy, the Supreme Court Building, the Pentagon, and Washington National Cathedral.

Memorials

We visited many memorials this trip, all over D.C. We went to memorials dedicated to famous people, such as the Lincoln Memorial, the Jefferson Memorial, and the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial. We also went to memorials for veterans, soldiers, wars, and killed servicemen, such as the Air Force Memorial, the Iwo Jima Memorial, the World War Two Memorial, the Korean War Veterans Memorial, and the Arlington National Cemetery. (The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.)

Other

We also went to other places not in the two categories above. We visited Ford's Theatre, which was where President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated. We also went to Mount Vernon, which was where George Washington lived and where he is buried now with his wife.
