Pack up your RV and head to Washington to visit some of our country’s most important landmarks, monuments and buildings. Fun places to visit in your RV.
The U.S. Capitol Building
If you haven’t seen the U.S. Capitol Building in person yet, it’s a must-see on your road trip to Washington. Not only is it one of the most nationally and internationally recognized buildings in the world, it has an incredible history of destruction, rebuilding, expanding, and restoring. The House and Senate office buildings are inside as well as tons of other facilities that help make our country tick, and you can learn about them all in one place this President’s Day.
The Octagon Museum
One of the best places to learn about the history of Washington — as well as the city’s architecture and historic preservation — is at the Octagon Museum at 1799 New York Ave. The building served as a house for James and Dolley Madison, a girls’ school, the Navy Hydrographic Office and the American Institute of Architects. Now you can enjoy learning about this historic building as well as the incredible city it calls home as you browse through the exhibits.
Mount Vernon Estate
Located in Mount Vernon, Va., this massive estate was once home to George Washington. The estate is composed of a 14-room home that has been completely restored and decorated with items dating back to the time Washington and his family lived in the home. Enjoy views of the Potomac river as you explore the house, its outbuildings, slave quarters and stables from start to finish.
