* D.C. has notoriously difficult traffic circles. The explanation is that this in case those [[EvilBrit redcoats]] (or later, just [[DirtyCommunists the Reds]]) ever come back, they'll enter a traffic circle and will be unable to figure out how to leave it, thus keeping them from burning the city. [[TheWarOf1812 Again]].

The museums on the Mall are all free. Good luck finding a place to eat, though; the American Indian Museum is popular. The best times to visit D.C. are March, when the CherryBlossoms bloom and October, after the summer ends but before the (mild but still annoying) winter hits. The Cherry Blossom Festival is the only the locals take it seriously, and much like Mardi Gras, you have to know when and where to actually go -- the blossoms never coincide with the actual festival. When they do bloom, millions of people descend on the Mall at once in a blossom-fueled rage. Traffic becomes nightmarish at these times, as tourists flood the city.[[note]]Note - [[SeriousBusiness This actually happens. And unfortunately for them, it's been getting earlier gradually, probably due to climate change.]][[/note]]

** The National Museum of the American Indian. The newest museum on the mall, the NMAI has striking architecture designed to look like canyon walls, and has the best cafeteria out of all the Smithsonian museums. Even Smithsonian employees tend to agree that it has the best food.
