Cultural Tourism DC asked some prominent Washingtonians to share with us their favorite places or events that are special and unique to DC.
1. National Museum of Women in the Arts Role Model Workshop - I love to see talented young DC artistic, literary, and performing arts students thinking about career opportunities within the Arts.
2. Bonsai Garden at the US National Arboretum - National Bonsai & Penjing Museum is undoubtedly one of Washington's key attractions for plant lovers. They have one of the largest collections of bonsai trees in North America.
3. President Lincoln’s Cottage - It is a must see, along with Uncle Tom’s Cabin in Rockville.
4. Rock Creek Cemetery – This cemetery’s park-like setting has many notable mausoleums and tombstones, plus great sculpture!
5. Cowgirl Creamery – One of my favorite places in the District for cheeses.
Bonus: Tosca for an intime pre-theater dinner. Menu is fantastic!
