Frank J. Aucella is the Executive Director of the Woodrow Wilson House, a national historic landmark and house museum that focuses on President Woodrow Wilson's "Washington Years (1912-1924)".
Cultural Tourism DC asked some prominent Washingtonians to share with us their favorite places or events that are special and unique to DC.
Frank’s five favorite places:
1. Hillwood Estate Museum and Gardens – It’s not only reflects the life and style of heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post, but is also an inside glimpse into a wonderful Washington home.
2. Anderson House (Society Of Cincinnati) – A place where you can walk in any afternoon and stroll through a beautiful Beaux Arts mansion on Massachusetts Avenue.
3. Woodrow Wilson’s Tomb – Located at the Washington National Cathedral, it is a remarkable story told in stone of the rich life of Wilson, not only as President but as a statesman and educator.
4. Dupont Circle – Just sitting a mist a circle that is a vibrant hub and intersection of a DC business community, nightlife, arts, and the entrance to Embassy Row.
5. Embassy Row – Washington’s magnificent one mile boulevard where colorful flags of nations all over the world are passed by each day by thousands of commuters, viewing the exterior sculpture of a seven foot elephant at the Ivy Coast Embassy to the large Winston Churchill statue outside of the British Embassy.
