Washington, D.C., is full of rich, accessible history. In fact, Pierre Charles L’Enfant, who laid out the plans for the city, named the streets in alphabetical and numerical order so it would be easy for everyone to find their way around. This international city, full of people from all over world, is a city of neighborhoods, each with a distinctive flavor.

The city’s many attractions – including the U.S. Capitol Building, the White House, even the Bureau of Engraving, where our money is made – are fascinating. Our museums help visitors learn about U.S. history and culture, and many of them offer free admission. Come to the Nation’s capital and visit the Museum of the American Indian, the Anacostia Museum and Center for African-American History and Culture, the National Portrait Gallery and the entire Smithsonian complex, just for starters.

I like to tell visitors that the Nation’s capital represents them, too. There is an embassy representing every country in the world here, and I encourage them to visit these places and learn about D.C. from that perspective. Because we are a melting pot, D.C. offers many types of cuisines – visitors will find everything from Ethiopian food to great French and Italian restaurants.

Take time to explore our rich artistic and cultural community. Blues Alley in Georgetown is famous for good reason. The 14th Street and the U Street corridor have jazz clubs that are really amazing. Many streets there have been renamed for jazz greats: Duke Ellington, Sarah Vaughn and Ella Fitzgerald. The whole neighborhood is important to the African-American community. Elsewhere in the city, attend a performance at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the National Theater, the Howard Theatre, Ford’s Theatre and many other excellent venues.

In Washington, D.C., you’re just two hours from the mountains and two hours from the Atlantic coast. Sometimes I like to take visitors on the scenic Skyline Drive through Shenandoah National Park, giving them a very different experience. There they can see where pioneer families lived and worked.

Where others saw a wall, Kevin Jorgeson saw a way.

A little more than a year ago, the Northern California athlete and his friend Tommy Caldwell became the first to free-climb the Dawn Wall, a near-vertical 3,000-foot (914-metre) rock face on El Capitan in Yosemite National Park in California.

Probably the most modern on the list, The Nolitan Hotel’s rooms are warehouse-style conversions overlooking the streets of Nolita. A boutique hotel in every sense of the word, the Nolitan’s 57 rooms aren’t the largest, but they’re still sufficiently posh. Make no mistake – part of the luxury of the Nolitan is in its location. With the gritty culture of Chinatown on one side, the galleries and shops of Nolita on the other and SoHo just a few blocks away, this is the hotel to stay in if you want the true local experience. Downstairs, New Yorkers and visitors alike flock to the Cantine Parisienne for Chef Marcel Agnez’s take on French-American cuisine.

As the spinner dolphin swims, the island of Lanai is perched but eight miles off the western shoulder of Maui. From Honolulu it is a 20-minute puddle jump. In terms of atmosphere, though, Lanai is light years removed from the rest of Hawaii’s bustle.
