IN WASHINGTON DC YOU SHOULD SEE:

Attractions to See in Washington DC include The White House, The Capitol, the National Archives, along with the beautiful and awe-inspiring Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials and the elegant Washington Monument.

The art in Washington DC is second to none, so be sure to see the Old-Masters of the National Gallery and The Phillips Collection.  Historically speaking, DC's Holocaust Museum changed the way museum-goers experienced this type of one-subject institution - it is not to be missed.

Make time to see the vast collections of the Smithsonian Museums which includes the Air & Space Museum, the venerable Hirshhorn Museum and the Sackler Gallery.

If it's spring, try to time your vacation to see the dazzling DC Cherry Blossom Festival that happens along the Tidal Basin.  Remember that the Folger Library is one of the great repositories of William Shakespeare's papers.

There's too much to mention here, but consider seeing Ford's Theatre and the Peterson House (where Lincoln was assassinated and died) the sobering Arlington Cemetery and the World War II Memorial.

Doing business with the government?  The guide includes an extensive list of US government offices and departments.

    The Story of how Red Maps Began

    The story of Red Maps began when I was working at a job in real estate...

    One lucky day, while drawing a map to show a client the locations of shops along Miami Beach’s Lincoln Road, a colleague passed my desk, saw my drawing, and casually mentioned that I had a talent for cartography. She suggested that I make maps professionally.

    Giving it some thought, I proceeded to try just that. Each day after work I would teach myself computer-graphics by reading one chapter from an Adobe Illustrator manual. It took over one year’s time to produce the first Red Maps for sale in May of 1998.
