The Giving Tree Project - Christmas Tree Lot: what do users think?


Jessica Burroughs: Such a knowledgeable and kind team! They helped us put our tree on our car and everything. We got a beautiful blue spruce. Also love that each purchase supports a local charity!
Response: Thank you, Jessica! We’re glad you came down to support our mission and enjoyed the experience!

Hristiyana Ralinova: This is the 5th year we partner with Ben and The Giving Tree project and we truly appreciate the partnership and service he provides to us at Canopy The Wharf DC and Hyatt House hotels. The joy of our team decorating the trees and enjoying the Christmas spirit is now a tradition we treasure especially knowing we are supporting local non-profit organizations too. Thank you for all you do, Ben and we look forward to continuing working together! Happy Holidays!

John-Mike Nelson: There’s nothing better than being able to have a beer in hand and shop for a Christmas tree in the same location! They had so many nice looking trees and the guys working took time to show me many, many, many different options since it was my first time buying a real tree. My tree was beautiful! Will be back next year to buy from here!
Response: John-Mike, thanks for your kind review. So glad you enjoyed the experience!

Justin Winn: The Giving Tree Project and Sherman Gardens offer the best Christmas tree purchasing experience in the DMV. Proceeds go to an important initiative, the trees are fantastic and the Sherman crew make it fun while you find your perfect Christmas tree! Happy holidays!

Christopher Riley: I went to the Giving Tree this weekend. The team working was super nice. Rachael helped me find the perfect tree for my condo and showed me lots of options. Will definitely be back next year!
Response: Thanks Christopher! Rachel will, too!

wamnoor: I had an awesome experience picking out my first real Christmas tree here! We are Muslim and wanted to bring up the mood this year! I had a glazed white pot that I wanted to put the tree into and the staff were so friendly and helpful working patiently with me to find just that perfect size and shaped tree! I also got some great tips to keep the tree fresher for longer! The tree makes me so happy whenever I see it at home and I am most definitely looking forward to coming back again to the lot next year!
Response: We’re so glad. Loved the idea of putting the stand inside a decorative pot. Happy happy holidays and we’ll see you next year!

Victoria Rametta: Best Christmas tree experience I've had. Got there later in the evening and so they were running low for options, but we got a beautiful 6" tree. The beer and pizza were great, but Ben was the best part. Patient, attentive, and upbeat. Only wish I had another reason to go back!

lehi ruiz: This Christmas tree is amazing. Ben and the staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and very passionate about their work. Will definitely return next year.

Jeff Plant: This is the second year in a row that my partner and I have gotten our tree from The Giving Tree Project at Wundergarten. The staff helped us pick out a really nice Frasier Fir that fits our small living room space perfectly! We find them to be knowledgeable, very helpful, and actually... quite fun to chat with while you make your selection. It's also comforting knowing that a portion of the proceeds go towards charity, especially in 2020. The beer garden where it is located (Wundergarten) is especially fun too, a great spot to have a drink or a bite to eat before, during, or after you shop for your tree. The staff at the lot even held our tree for us after helping us decide which one to choose, so that we could have drinks and enjoy the beer garden's great ambiance before we left. Then they helped us get it on our car with ease. Very nice folks working there. I highly recommend this tree lot over others I have been to in previous years. For me, it's The Giving Tree or no tree!
Response: Hi Jeff, so happy to hear! This is exactly what we hope our customers experience.Have a great holiday and hope to see you next year!

Amy L. Haayer: I’m very grateful to get my first real Christmas tree from Ben!! It’s a shorty fir that is perfect and comes with a stand as well. This is the year I think we all need a little extra cheer and while your at it grab a beer. Thank you!!!
Response: We hope you enjoy it, Amy! Thanks so much for for coming!

National Christmas Tree: what do users think?


Elizabeth Valdes: A lot of history and places to visit at Christmas it was beautiful they had the big National Christmas Tree and a smaller Christmas Tree for each state or territory very nice organized.

Jenna DeFosse: A festive outing, this year (2019) the state trees were not arranged in a circle like they have been in the past I think, so that was a little odd as some trees were off on separate pathways. The trees are nice if you take the time to look at the ornaments on each tree. Might be nice if there were outdoor heaters here.

Rachel Rachel: Really nice to see at night, but also not bad to see during the day! It’s certainly not as crowded if you visit during the day, although you won’t see the nice lights. Also- very cute trains running around the main tree. There are smaller Christmas trees for each state in the U.S., each of which is decorated by ornaments made by children from a particular school in the applicable state.

Suman Adhikari: Recently visited this place and was really impressed by this Christmas tree just in front of the White House in the South Park. The decoration was very good from top to bottom and there were also miniature of few small localities with small running metro trains through those localities. I could not taste the food they had there but the smell was good ..lol

Mustapha Amazouz: This is my first ever TripAdvisor review and after visiting this lovely restaurant I felt compelled to do so!!! The whole experience from our pre-dinner drinks to the end of the evening was first class. The staff are all welcoming and helpful and the service was very relaxed and we weren’t rushed at all even though the restaurant was very busy. The food was superb and I had the Belly Pork with crackling which was divine!!! We will definitely be back again for sure and I can highly recommend it, you won’t be disappointed!!!

Karen Crespy (Crespygirl): Always beautiful and love each state's tree along the path. Big nativity on one end. If you can get there for any live performances and reindeer, it's a treat. Can be crowded, but generally everyone is well behaved.

Andrew Griffiths: Not as fanciful as it used to be. All ornaments are the same style spheres that everyone fills up (or rarely, paints) with things from thier state. The lights and stars are all the same. I remember years ago the trees were very unique and there was a giant Yule log that was burning which offered great warmth to the visitors.

Joey G: This tree is definitely a lot smaller than expected. The tree in Rockefeller Center in NYC is so much bigger, which is strange since this is consider the "National Christmas Tree." Nonetheless, it's a nice tree, but nothing really spectacular. If you don't get the opportunity to see it, you're not missing much.

J P: Very nice display of the Christmas tree and all states/ territories! However, it’s not very well designed. It does not accommodate the large volume of spectators, due to its poor traffic design.

Ev. P.: I loked the fact that its of the 50 states had its own tree around a big one which was decorated according to each state's culture. The atmosphere was festive and beautiful.

Dan and Bryan Christmas Trees: what do users think?


Harleen Sahni: They have great trees and fast and friendly service. They have a good selection of larger trees as well as smaller ones. One thing I wish they offered is netting the tree so it's easier to manage. Maybe they don't do it because of the plastic waste? They are definitely expensive, but I think that's to be expected given the location and having high quality trees.

Elsie D.: They are not open until 9:00pm. They were there but said they closed early, I'm sure it happens often so just know the posted hours are not a guarantee (I wouldn't bother showing up after 8:30pm). It was too bad because we saw several other people also arriving with hopes of getting a tree. We did look around and they did seem to have some smaller trees that would be a good size for an apartment, priced around $60—I think that's considered expensive for small trees, but it's sort of that Goldilocks size we'd been hoping for. We probably won't make the trek again and will try to find another place that is open consistently.

Sarah Kenney: Their prices went sky high this season. Last year we purchased a large tree from them for 75 dollars. This year everything went up by at least 30 to 50 dollars. We ended up with a much smaller tree for 95 dollars. I went back this year because we were happy with the price and value of the tree we got last Christmas. This year they are just gauging people. Go somewhere else, Whole Foods off Wisconsin Ave is selling trees for the same sizes at much better prices. This is the last year I will ever buy a tree from them.

Daniel Riley: Trees are expensive, but they are super fresh and absolutely gorgeous! Our trees always last a full month so it is worth it. They are also super helpful with prepping the tree and attaching it to the car for transport. Would give 6 stars if that was an option! I do advise going early in the day and early in the season for the best selection.

Caia Slater: The absolute best Christmas trees in DC. I've come here every year and will always continue to. Thanks to Bryan for the lovely trees and customer service!

Mick S: Always a good time at the Tree Farm. They provide the saw and the sled to help you cut and carry your tree back to the car. One thing to note - tree prices and tree inventory can change dramatically due to climate issues (rain, drought) or economic issues (other tree farms simply not making trees available) but that's the world we live in. Overall, they have a really good selection of Douglas and Frasier Firs. We'll continue to get our trees here as long as they keep growing them.

Jon Dean: Went to their Beltsville address and got a 14' Tree, its was delivered and set up and is a real beauty. The delivery guys were great and the service like every year has been super. Thanks Hugh.

Nelson Bennett: My family has been buying trees from this business (when it was Sundbacks) since 1977. LOVE the trees! Beautiful, fresh and usually not pruned the same year they are sold (no visible signs of pruning). BUT recently, they have sold out of trees WAY before I usually put mine up. Tonight is December 13th. I've ALWAYS bought my tree around the middle of December. In the past few years, Dan And Bryan seem to have made an intentional business decision to stop supplying trees to their tree lots well before Christmas. This coming weekend (December 15th, 16th, 17th) should be the BIGGEST weekend for tree sales. I don't get it. Their website says they are open until 9:00 pm. Tried calling ahead. No answer. No voicemail. So I went in vain to find the tree lot DARK at 8:30 pm. Sad and angry here. Sad, because I HATE buying trees elsewhere. Angry/frustrated by the lack of trees/shuttered business/can't get what I want at a very reasonable time before Christmas. I will go to tree lot tomorrow to find out what's going on. If they will be selling out more than 10 days before Christmas every year, I'm afraid I'll have to look elsewhere :( :( :(

Amy Leonard: The trees are great but it’s a bit frustrating when you’re here at opening hours and no one who works here is around. Just a bunch of people wandering around the trees at 10:10 waiting for someone to sell them something. Not a great way to run a business.

Stephanie G: Nice trees, but very few and they are almost all very large. The DC lot essentially sells high priced trees for the high priced homes in that area.

Enchant Christmas DC: what do users think?


Yvonne Marbury: This was my first time seeing Enchant at Christmas. I loved it, I took my daughter as part of her sweet 16 celebration. We had so many beautiful light displays to see and take pictures in front of. The first thing we did was get some hot chocolate ($6). They had a booth selling drinks, spiked ones and regular ones. The regular hot chocolate was perfect for a cold night walking around with family. The spiked one also included a cup you can keep that lit up and was shaped like an ornament. Very cute keepsake. When you first walk in someone hands you a map that gives you a list of secret displays that you want to search and find in the maze. This is a cute adventure for families with children. They also had a skating rink you can skate on too. So much fun! I highly recommend this for families or anyone wanting some fun family activity to enjoy holiday decorations.

Olga Graves: Though it was pretty, I’d say it’s a great one time event, wouldn’t be a holiday tradition for us. We hoped it would be more than what it was, being very crowded didn’t help, which of course it was. If you can, take some other form of transportation there, parking was no picnic even with reserved parking

J Passaro: This was our second time experiencing and we enjoyed it so much more on a weeknight. Thurs night, no crowds, no lines- beautiful to take it all in and not be pushed and shoved to do so. Yes expensive and there are plenty of upgrades and charges for much of everything but all we paid extra for was the drinks and some food and we still thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We went on a event special day called the Feast of the Night or something and there was literally no feast nor much food at all. Last time there were a lot more unique food options so it’s a shame that we lost out to the food offerings just bc it was a weeknight and they failed on the advertised event. Ben’s Chili Bowl wasn’t open as weren’t many others. Easily found parking on the street. Lots of security/police outside of the stadium so felt safe. Everyone was friendly and helpful. No issues at all- oh and we didn’t see a Santa despite a sign saying he was there. The setting was beautiful and the maze was fun. We spend just as much for a baseball game outing so this was no different in cost and the kids really enjoyed it, so that’s what matters.

Austin Graff: If you’re looking for something to do during the holidays with kids, Enchant DC is an option. Here’s our experience: 1) Kid-Friendly: The main attraction is the scavenger hunt through the light maze. The hunt is a little confusing and underwhelming for adults, but kids are into it, which was fun to see! My four-year-old daughter loved finding the eight “gifts” around the maze, stopping at fun stations like the dance floor and the light tunnel. 2) Photo-Ops: The lights are magical making for many great shots of the family and friends. 3) Amenities: There’s an ice skating rink, market of local businesses (a win!), Santa and Mrs. Claus and food stations. It all comes at a price. For example, the cheapest cotton candy was $11. 4) Price: For our family of three to go, it costs $110+, not including parking. To save money, spend the time finding street parking. Also, eat dinner beforehand. Skip the ice skating rink as there’s a cheaper option nearby at Canal Park.

Jessica Long: This was a really nice experience with shops and food. The main attractions are down on the field. The ice skating loop is not very long—takes about 30 secs to skate. So, it gets crowded quick. The maze is very cool. It had a open concept. I would definitely go back in the future! Bring friends! Bring small children—they’ll have a blast!

Alita brown: My first visit to the Enchanted Christmas was a success. It was very clear the time and effort put into putting up the beautiful lighting, preparing the food, and the staff service was excellent. Everyone had such a positive attitude and went above and beyond to answer questions and just provide excellent customer service. This is perfect for all types of visitors, families , couples and singles.

Sonya Williams (Wildflowers and Hooyahs): We had such a great time. Do not recommend for folks with strollers or wheelchairs because even though they had accessibility, it was horrible for folks to maneuver with sooooo many people there stopping every few feet for a photo. Granted it was pretty and something we haven’t done before, I still Don’t think we will do it again. The price was okay but still, not worth a repeat in my book. The light up floor was cool and I liked how every corner had something different to look at. Also liked that they had a Santa that our son was able to meet. Def an experience, but not worth a repeat.

Vy H.: Love how pretty the decorations and lights are here! There’s so many picture worthy spots but at the same time there’s tons of people so you end up having to wait to get some good shots. Once you get inside, you can stay as long as you want. They serve cute drinks too, but it’s overpriced—$17 for a lightbulb drink that tastes more like juice and barely any liquor.

Brandon Richardson: The negative reviews are far from the truth. This place gives tasty mixed drinks with heavy pours, tasty treats, and unique independent artisans selling goods/wares. The maze is a large size and is easily enjoyed. There was a long wait for the ice skating ⛸ so we skipped it. But everything else was great. The lights are different from the last time I went a few years ago. It's a great place for kids. There is a kids play area and tables where they can color. There is live music as well as preselected Christmas tunes playing throughout. There is a place for kids to meet SANTA and Mrs. 🎅 🧑‍🎄.

Julie J: Go early if you can. We had entry at 430 and we're able to get everywhere with little issue. By the time we finished the maze there were lines to get in. We were able to get a timed visit w Santa so no wait going early. We paid to park in garage C and given the number of people trolling for parking spots on the street, we were happy we did. There was food available and places to sit and eat. Vendors w various products were there as well. Go early!!!

Downtown Holiday Market in Penn Quarter: what do users think?


Hilda Kroll: I've been going to the Holiday Market for ten years and I think this is the best one ever. My must-have favorite is the mini donuts. The tents are clearly marked and have a large variety of merchandise, mostly handmade, that would make beautiful gifts. Prices are generally very affordable. And as you walk along or stop and sit to enjoy, there's live music.

Kristin Sindorf: Very fun! We went to the market around 730pm and it wasn't too crowded. There were lots of tents with local artists as well as some tents with your more touristy fare. The food tents all smelled amazing but the best ones had pretty long lines.

Amanda Blake: Full of festive spirit, great snacks, and awesome stores! Try the mini donuts while you listen to the bluegrass band. Heaven. We always get tons of great spices and unique gifts. Highly recommend.

A Cooper: The market was small, but cute. Shake Shack next door was so busy, they're pretty great but didn't go due to the lines. Food tent lines on the 23rd were not awful as many described in other reviews. Regardless, tons of great food options around. The live music was nice. I used Spot Hero for parking and parked at the Victor Building. Parking is right in there so only recommended for small cars. It was a 5 minute walk to the holiday market and a 20 minute walk from the National Tree near the White House. Afterwards we drove a mile to the Capitol building to see the tree as well. It's a nice central location for the limited holiday festivities in the area.

Ryan Rieboldt: Lovely little Christmas and Holiday market. Recommend the mini donuts, you can put your own glazed and toppings on and they were delicious! Cute quaint experience with gifts for anyone and everyone on your list.

Renee Kar-Johnson: Literally had the bestest time. I have been to bigger/better markets but if you are in the area definitely stop by. They have this churro stall that we waited for but the mine was too long :(

Avijit Roy (Kabyo): Great experience here. Just unbelievable. Lots of things available here. Live Christmas music. There was a painting shop there. It was amazing. I never thought they would be that helpful. A positive energy is flowing here. Shops are filled with beautiful ornaments and paintings. The person in the painting shop was very fringe. Took a selfie with him too! :-)

Rachel K: It just wasn't what I expected. We came into the city to walk the holiday market, I guess I expected more artisan goods and more locally made items. My experience was it was around half full of what appeared to be locally made items, and half full of stuff you could pick up at the mall. We still had a fun experience, and I would recommend if you're already in the area but I wouldn't make the trip back into the city just for the market.

Kate Bellows: Nice variety of creators. A little crowded, I wish it took up more space so it didn’t feel so crushed together.

Jenna DeFosse: I’m a DMV local and had never been to this Christmas market before however went for the first time this winter and was quite impressed! Good array of varying types of crafts/goods. We definitely picked up a few Christmas gifts here. It’s close to Chinatown too so you could come in the evening like we did and get some dinner close by afterwards! The market was two rows of tents - the rows could have been wider apart from one a another, it did get crowded when lots of moving were moving through. This could be a problem for people with mobility issues. There were outdoor heaters, not all working and could have had a few more. I definitely think this market is worthy of 5 stars.

United States Botanic Garden: what do users think?


ThePinkfreak805: A really beautiful and enjoyable place! They’ve got some really awesome plant species here! The tropical room is especially great! Not only is it beautiful, but with the humidity you’ll really feel like you’re in the rainforest! Also very cool to see the endangered plants you aren’t likely to see anywhere else.

Sara García: If I could, I would never leave this place. From the moment you approach the building, your can see and, more importantly, smell the wonderful collection of plants everywhere. My all-time favorite part of the grounds, the section I visit every time I'm in DC. is the nook in Zone 5 with the carnivorous plants- something you definitely don't see every day! Find a bench to rest in your favorite zone, track down every single species of plant, learn about different gardening techniques, or hang out in the canopy walk of the rain forest to catch some awesome views of the city. Either way, make sure you swing by on your next visit to DC!

Alex Navarro: Always lovely. The inside and outside gardens are full of flowers. Great place to take kids. They even have a children’s garden where kids can plant something and water it. So cute! You can spend a lot of time here if you like, but you can also easily see everything in about an hour.

Richa Rashmi: This is such a delightful retreat for an afternoon lunch or just a date in the different ecotones of the world. You could walk into a completely tropical climate full of tropical trees that have terrace views, or walk into a desert of cactus. There’s a section on medicinal plants followed by rare and endangered species which is mind blowing. I absolutely loved my shortest trip to Hawaii and then to a garden of orchids and roses. Be sure to checkout the inner and outer gardens. There are interesting wall murals of tea from China and other such use. But the most amazing part was the TOILET. Yes, you heard it right. It’s full of ornamental plants that smells amazing and the sound of water and birds will make you feel you’re in the cleanest part of the world, unlike what public restrooms are known for.

Colten Adams: The BEST indoor botanic garden conservatory I've ever been to. The ceilings are incredibly high and there are catwalks to walk high above the plants. It is very hot and humid inside so I'd recommend dressing light. If you enjoy plants I would highly recommend these botanic gardens. The exterior gardens are not the best I've seen, but the indoor ones definitely are.

Jeremy Andra: The botanical gardens are a beautiful hideaway from the normal everyday views of the world. An amazing display of some of the wonderful offerings this world has to offer in the way of beautiful plants and miscellaneous greenery. We were shocked to find there is no charge to see any of this and would highly suggest you stop in and check it out.

abdiel blas: I have had a great experience here. The gardens are very well kept. Nice place to get fresh air or as a romantic date. I will say they may need a little bit of better signage to let you know exactly where you're at. I found it a little difficult to read the map with the numbers. Other than that I highly recommend Botanic Gardens!!!

Ryan Brunk: Good staff outdoor gardens were very nice. I was a little underwhelmed with the size of the greenhouses but they were extremely well cared for. The whole facility indoor and out showed the care of its staff. Most impressive collection is orchids but pay attention as they are spread all over the facility. Don't forget to look up as well as down.

Hyo Jin Moon: Beautiful garden that is open to the public for free. There are spots where you can sit and enjoy the weather and also the indoor green house that has so much to see (and learn. Lots of educational components). I highly recommend visiting here with kids of all ages.

Ben Matthews: If you’ve spent the day walking up the mall and around the museums, then this is a fantastic place to unwind. The glasshouse is beautiful in its own right, and features plants from many different climates. And the outdoor gardens are equally lovely. Definitely worth a stop if you’re near the Capital Building.

The President's Park: what do users think?


Mac: ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!!! Very cool being right up against the White House too and seeing all the Secret Service teams as well. EXTREMELY VERY VERY LONG LINE so when it opens back up get there super super early

Rena Correia: We happened to be walking by when the new Justice of the Supreme Court (Judge Ketanje Brown-Jackson) was being introduced to the nation and got to take a few pictures!! The grounds were all cordoned off today as it's right behind the White House gardens. Another beautiful park to enjoy!

Cece Peterson: Being from California and moving to the east coast this was such a beautiful thing to see .. lots of traffic.. over priced water and food.. make sure u bring your own waters it was very hot out the day we went lots and lots of police.. and we got to see the president drive by us at least we thought it was him they shut down the roads and ju6 a few minutes before that we saw the president helicopter fly in over us so that's why we think we saw him drive by us and plus the vehicle he was or whomever it was had the president flags on the front it was such a lucky opportunity to just be able to walk around and see this amazing place

v3j: Always great sightseeing. Be aware of your surroundings: folks on electric scooters and bikes take needless risks and it'll be you that will be injured! A lot of food trucks too.

Jason Clise: I have never made it to this part of DC so this was an awesomely clear day to be outside. There was a great deal of security which was comforting after seeing some of the unique protesters we ran in to. The White House is so majestic and a bit overwhelming. I just love the architecture in DC. Too bad Trump was out of town. I will certainly visit again.

Matthew Prado: It's decent as you can see many items and rooms with importance to the president, but there's nothing of importance in terms of major events for the United States.

Cheryl Anderson: The Lincoln Memorial took my breath away! It was such an amazing feeling/sight being in the park. I have to go back. I still didn't see everything I wanted to see! Omg, it was awesome!

Flavio Polverini: Great area to visit.

KC Mitch: Very nice setup with the tree on the lawn. Lots of security so you feel safe. They need to cut the trees so u can see more of Donald’s house.

Chaz Stickels: It was cool. The national Christmas tree is worth seeing if you're nearby. There are a bunch of model trains around it as well, which are fun. It's probably better people watching that being impressed by a tree but that's good too.

Washington D.C. Temple Visitors' Center: what do users think?


Alicia Gonzalez: If you've never been here, you should definitely go. Its only open for a short amount of time to the public. It is spectacular, truly breathtaking. There is no detail left undone. Everyone inside is so welcoming. Many people I've spoke with automatically assume the members try and recruit you which for us wasn't true. No one ever tried to recruit or even talk with us on that level. Instead people were so kind, helpful and grateful to share their beautiful temple with the public.

Janie Bowerbank: They have an open house until Jun 11 where anyone can come and see the beautiful inside of this temple. Usually only members of the church can go inside. Really cool experience for my children and family.

Erin Swan: So beautiful. My second favorite temple I've been to put of 13. The grounds are unbelievably beautiful. Such a serene place amongst a crazy busy city.

Quanda M: Beautiful and nostalgic 💖 Felt warm and welcoming in this place of worship. Forever grateful to have had the opportunity to enjoy this holy place.

Wade St: Beautiful inside and out, makes you question is there something out there, a God in heaven? Answers questions of where we came from, why we are here, and where we are going after this life. Will be back.

Joe Hinson: Wonderfully friendly docents, so happy to greet you and share their message. The visitor center was only open part time at the time of our visit due to the open house of the adjacent temple.

Sheldon George: I highly recommend the Visitors Center experience. The guides are very knowledgeable and were able to shed light on what happens inside the Temple. After our tour we stepped out to view the gardens. We were able to feel the peace that surroundeds the building. I can only imagine what it must feel like inside!

Cecilia Tubb: Beautiful once in a lifetime opportunity to visit the inside of the Washington DC Temple. Once dedicated, only members will be able to visit. Learning the history and seeing the beauty of Latter Day Saint temples will inspire you.

aunt gwen wilkins: i finally got to visit the temple to night april 28th 2022. it was so beautiful and the staff that greeted my self and my 2 daughters and of course my granddaughter were so friendly. i have been riding the beltway for years and i never thought that i would be able to visit this beautiful building. if you ever get a chance to visit please do so.

Md. Imrul Reza Shishir: Loved it. It was worth spending time in Washington D.C. template visiting center. Very organized and very welcoming reception people. Volunteer working at the church were so nice, caring and helpful. It's a nice place to bring your kids. There are temple building which is not opened yet but it has very outstanding architecture.im gonna post some pictures of that. Eagerly waiting to see temple enterior. Christmas time lighting was really eye soothing.

United States Capitol: what do users think?


Zay McCullough, MSW, LCSW-A: This was the last major attraction I saw during my one week trip here from 12/28/21 to 1/4/2022. You can see the Capital Building from several blocks away. I actually remembered I needed to stop by because I saw it after exiting the Children’s Museum. It was a little after 5pm when we made it there. We say the reflecting pool, which is wider but shorter than the reflecting pool between the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument. Unlike the latter, the Capitol’s reflecting pool isn’t easily accessible to stuck your feet it. The view, however, was still nice. This was my first time being in DC since I was in elementary school. It was extremely awesome to see the Capitol building. It was ironic that I had just watched Olympus Has Fallen on TV in my hotel just a day prior. Unfortunately, the perimeter of the building is gated off due to the events that transpired a year ago. I’m saddened to see that public access still isn’t available. Of course COVID is an added barrier to tours. Going inside is something that I wanted to do. I did not go to the visitors center that is close by as my son was ready to go back to the hotel, lol. There was a large Christmas tree in the lawn area between the capital building and the reflecting pool. Many people were taking pictures and appeared to be having a good time. I was grateful for the experience because I talked to my son (8) about what goes on in the building, the legislative bodies, and etc. I’m sure he’s forgotten everything we talked about but he can say he seen it in person whenever he does learn about it in school.

Ganindu Madhawa: A place where one can probe into the political history of USA.It is an iconic place and you need to reserve tickets beforehand visiting the place. You will be provided with a guide who give descriptive analysis of the architecture of the place and historical events. 😊

Yusra Nabeel: Such a great experience visiting one of the US symbols. Great place with beautiful reflection in pool.

Ali Shajarizadeh: This beautiful building is a must-see for everyone who visit Washington DC. The building has a long history. The place is where many important decisions were and are made that affects the world.

Nas Sol: The in-depth history of this iconic building is grander than I expected! A true beautiful from the exterior to the interior. I got a sense of appreciation after leaving from here. It can get very packed though so it's recommended you start your day early to beat the crowd. A must see when you're in DC!

Stephen Butler: My first time taking the tour. Our Representative arranged a VIP tour. It was very small and personal. There’s no cost, but if your going to take a tour book it in advance. It takes about 3 hours or so. It was worth the time. Please hit “Like” if this was helpful. Thanks.

Ben Henderson: Really enjoyed the tour inside the Capitol building. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and funny. Really interesting history and beautiful inside. Liked the fact you can then walk through a tunnel to cross over to the library of Congress which again was beautiful.

Keith Roussel: Visiting the Capitol building is fantastic experience. I visited with my family and it was a great opportunity to see some of our nation's history as well as the seat of power of the legislative branch. We booked a tour in advance from out state senator Ted Cruz. Our tour began at his office in the neighboring senate building. From there we took the underground trolly to the capitol building. Our tour guide took us through the various parts of the capitol biding explaining the building, decoration and history. After the tour we were able to view the senate and house of representative chamber. Each was unique. The House had a live reenactment of typical chamber proceedings which was nice, but once the reenactment was finished, we had to leave. The senate on the other hand had no reenactment, but we would stay as long as we like. I sat therefore a while attempting to etch the experience in my memory, which I personally valued more.

blade Galletta: This is a must visit in Washington D.C. The capital building is absolutely gorgeous. In the spring time there are many flowers and trees surrounding it to make it even better. The fountain in the front is very unique and perfect for pictures with the building. They have gates up with guards so you can't get really close. I think they do tours but you would have to research that on the website.

Isabelle Tran: Beautiful architecture from the outside. Recommended to book in advance for a tour. The park outside is a beautiful place to relax after a long day of touring, including some cherry blossom trees.
