* ThePentagon: Actually across the river from Washington, in Arlington, Virginia, this is the headquarters of the Department of Defense and the American armed forces it oversees. As with the White House, when the Secretary of Defense or the Defense Department announces a policy, it is often said that "The Pentagon Announced" as if the building actually was talking.

* The Holocaust Memorial Museum. ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. Rotating exhibits on UsefulNotes/WorldWar2 and various aspects of UsefulNotes/NaziGermany, plus a large permanent exhibit that can best be described as a [[TearJerker self-guided, solemn tour through Hell.]] An optional aspect of said tour is to take a small dossier representing a real victim which allows the bearer to learn about said individual's fate, which rarely has a happy ending. Initially, this was part of the tour, but was made optional after visitors were overwhelmed by the experience.

South and east of Capitol Hill is the Anacostia river, hemmed in by levees and old industrial sidings. This marks the boundary with [[WrongSideOfTheTracks the hard lands]], known to some people as "Simple City"[[note]](because the choice between life and death is very simple there)[[/note]]. The [[SuperFunHappyThingOfDoom Department of Homeland Security]] has cheerfully decided to build its national HQ in a [[AbandonedHospital converted mental hospital]] in Simple City, just south of Anacostia's [[DissonantSerenity surprisingly quaint]] main drag. This part of town is also the home of D.C.'s other native music, go-go.[[note]]no, not ''[[BikiniBar that go-go]].''[[/note]] It is a lo-fi cross between funk and hip-hop that is played with guitar and dozens of percussion instruments.

** In a bizarre case of LifeImitatesArt [[ArtImitatesLife Imitates Life]], the Smithsonian Castle currently has a self-described "vast pile of booty from Smithsonian" on exhibit in the main hall, ''PiratesOfTheCaribbean''-style. It consists of replicas of all of the famous and obscure knick-knacks that appeared as props on the film, all of which were replicas of actual Smithsonian artifacts, topped by [[Film/TheWizardOfOz Dorothy's Slippers]], Film/{{Rocky}}'s gloves and [[Series/AllInTheFamily Archie Bunker's Chair]].
