    Very scenic, probably one of the best spots in DC. Lots of history, and often the center of protests, political movements and activity. Near lots of fun and entertaining things to do.

    Tough to get advance tickets. Send an emissary at 8:30am to get up to 6 tickets for your group entry later.
