    The description of why is:

    The history, the government, the breathtaking architecture and inspiring monuments—you don't have to be a child to get an amazing education in this city. Our nation's capital is also known for its plenitude of museums—in fact, there are 44, second only to the Big Apple!



    If your kid enjoys visiting the National Air and Space Museum, imagine fostering his love of airplanes with trips to nearby Gravelly Point Park for front-seat views of the takeoffs and landings at Reagan National Airport. The Capital Crescent Trail, a hard-surface trail from Georgetown to Bethesda, MD, developed on an abandoned rail bed, is a great bike trip that is off the beaten track.



    Family dinner nights are easy at quirky local favorites like Matchbox restaurants or Busboys & Poets—both provide a place adults and kids can enjoy. And, of course, any child growing up in Washington, DC, will have a special place in his heart for the famous cherry blossoms and festival held each spring




    Ummm alrighty then

    I know DC has this reputation of being poor and destitute based on 2 neighborhoods that have a bad rep but truthfully the majority of DC is comprised of nice neighborhoods in every quadrant and it's more expensive to live in DC



    Tmakka you see yuh girl Kim K on the new show H8R last night? It was pretty funny how she confronts a girl that was talking smack about she

    Hmmm Okay. The description sounded more touristy. Thought they would mention the school system as well.


    Nah I missed it. Lemme find out my girl was keeping it real! :)

    I agree with the description a little to generic for my taste as well...
    I get so tired of people talking about Anacostia or SE...Anacostia has some of the best views of the city and in 10 years or less will become prime real estate just like Georgetown (which some out of towner tried to convince me that is wasn't apart of DC but separate)...People also forget that Capitol Hill is SE...smdh....

    The DC public school system needs a lot of work but there is a plethora of private schools (Gonzaga, Georgetown Visitation, British School, Georgetown Day, St. Albans, & Sidwell Friends) in DC and you still have premium public schools like Oyster (Bilingual Spanish), Brent (Chinese Immersion (my Alma), Jefferson, Alice Deal, Benjamin Banneker,(College Prep), School without Walls (College Prep) and Duke Ellington School of the Arts (my Alma)

    DC is a very beautiful city ...even our ghettos which are very few now because of gentrification are nothing compared to other major cities..sometimes you can't even tell it's public housing

    The article should have mentioned the majority of our museums are FREE!! -along with so many other programs and other social events everyday..
