Washington DC

Washington, D.C., situated along the banks of the Potomac River between Virginia and Maryland, is a showcase of national treasures. The city's streets are a patchwork of museums, historical landmarks, art galleries, monuments, government buildings, restaurants, shops and cafes.

Not surprisingly, the politically charged environment lends the city an air of distinction and a penchant for activism. Washington's gay think-tank is one of the most committed and savvy GLBT communities and is home to some of the most powerful and visible gay men and lesbians in the country. If you find you've had your fill of history and culture and choose to sample a different type of excitement you'll find some big name attractions just outside the city. Busch Gardens, Water Country USA and Six Flags America are only a short ride away.
