If you’re like most Americans, you probably have an appetite for learning about the system. We all know that Washington, D.C. is a great place to visit if you’re simply looking to learn more about our government and how it works. But what if you want to learn more about the private sector? Or even better, what if you want to tour the capital yourself? That’s right: on this day in 1817, James Madison wrote the first letter of his career to the White House asking for help building his new nation. It was a day that will live in history as one of the most significant milestones in American political and social life. On this private tour of Washington D.C., we take you inside the government facilities where he spoke and explore why they are such a special place. Here's what you'll find on this private tour of Washington DC.

What is Washington, D.C.?

If you’ve been living under a rock, you’re in luck: Washington, D.C. is the capital city of the United States and the largest city in the United States. Located in the shadow of the Mason-Dixon Line, it’s a crucial part of American history, bearing witness to some of the nation’s most significant moments, including the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the signing of the Constitution, and the formation of the Senate and House of Representatives. You’ll find information on everything from parkour and backpacking to fulfilling your counseling and psychotherapy goals in our guide to Washington, D.C.

The National Mall and Argyle Street

If you’re looking for a city that is not only more than 100 percent urban but also has a rich history you will love, the National Mall is for you. Located in the south part of D.C., the National Mall is the largest park in the city, with more than 50 acres (20 km2) of parkland open to the public. The National Mall was originally built as a recreational area, with plans for a Central Park setting being explored as far back as 1915. By the time the Park Service was created in 1916, the size of the National Mall had grown beyond what was useful as a recreational space—the scope of the project became a matter of national policy. You’ll find information on everything from architecture and the creativity of its original contributors, the Park Service, as well as the beauty of the Mall and the history of its construction. And don’t forget to visit the National Zoo and learn more about William hunger bell and his zoo friends!

The Capitol and the White House

If you’re looking for a place where history is being made, the Capitol and its national monument, the Pentagon, are for you. Also known as the White House, the Capitol is one of the most recognizable places in D.C. It’s where we talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Great Resignation. The Capitol is also home to the U.S. Capitol Building, which is home to the U.S. Capitol, the U.S. Supreme Court, and the U.S. Congress. It’s also where you’ll find the U.S. House of Representatives, where you can see the guts of our federal government, as well as the U.S. flag.

The Reflecting, which houses the rotunda

If you’re looking for a sightseeing route into the heart of the capital, the Reflecting is the solution. This is a private room in the U.S. Capitol that houses the Rotunda—a bowl-shaped room with beautiful, hand-painted murals celebrating the history of the United States and its people. What makes the Rotunda so special is that it is not only a museum, but also a gallery—an open space where visitors can view architectural pieces, historic artifacts, and cultural items. The Rotunda also has a rooftop pool with views of Capital Hill and 28th Street, making it one of the most well-groomed sites on Capitol Hill.

The Supreme Court Chamber

The Supreme Court was the first building in the United States to come with a name, and while it’s certainly not the most memorable, it’s one of the most recognizable. The Supreme Court Chamber is the room where our Supreme Court justices sit when they are not in court. The Supreme Court is always in session, so there’s always something about sitting in the middle of the court with Chief Justice John Roberts, Justices Scalia and Ahrens, and the rest of the court clerks that make the room stand out. Every Justice has their desk, and the desk of Chief Justice Roberts is the most beautiful piece of furniture in the Supreme Court Chamber.

One of the nation’s most beautiful places to see

To top everything off, the U.S. Capitol is one of the most beautiful places in the world to see. The Capitol Hill neighborhood in D.C. is home to many of the most beautiful public lands in the world, so you’ll find yourself in need of a good view of the most stunning scenery in the world when you come here. The Capitol Hill neighborhood has some of the most amazing views of the city, including the White House, the Potomac, and the Ever GPL. You won’t find these views anywhere else. If you’re looking for a place to truly soak up the beauty of nature, the U.S. Capitol is an amazing place to visit.
