Instruction
Answer
Start at this obelisk that appears to be the center of the city, but actually isn't.
Washington Monument
Travel due east along the mall to this center of the legislative branch, as well as the ACTUAL center of the city.

Head northeast for less than a mile to this transportation hub
Union Station
Take the Metro red line a few stops west to this major circle with a statue and fountain in the center
Dupont Circle
Walk along Massachusetts Avenue for a while to experience this linear international area.
Embassy Row
Cross Rock Creek and go west to enter this historic neighborhood with a major university named after it.
Georgetown
If you walk along the water, you'll stroll past this hotel complex that was the talk of the nation in the early 1970s. Half the name still comes up every time there's a new scandal...
Watergate
Find your way across the Potomac River to this undeveloped island named after two presidents. Technically it's only named after one of them, but you get the point...
Roosevelt Island
If you walk up the hill to Rosslyn, you can take the Silver Line Metro (almost) all the way out to this airport, the largest in the region.
Dulles International Airport
You might have some trouble with the FAA, but maybe you can take a short flight back towards the city, ending at this airport much closer to downtown.
Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport
A short walk northwest through Arlington will get you to this headquarters of the Defense Department
Pentagon
Take a contemplative stroll through Arlington Cemetary, ending at this white marble tomb that is guarded around the clock.
Tomb of the Unknown Soldier
Going back across the Memorial Bridge, you have a view of the back of this Memorial, most frequently seen on some currency.
Lincoln Memorial
Nearby is this irregularly shaped aquatic feature, famously surrounded by blossoming cherry trees in the spring.
Tidal Basin
The first museum of your visit, appropriately located on Raoul Wallenberg Place, isn't part of the Smithsonian, but is an extremely educational, if rather depressing, reminder of history.
Holocaust Memorial Museum
Directly across the Mall is the Smithsonian's newest opening, with a much more modern-looking exterior.
African American History Museum
One of the Smithsonian's most popular museums will sweep you off the ground. You may have visited their other facility out near one of the airports...
Air and Space Museum
Just south of this museum is a Plaza (and Metro station) named for the city's first planner, whose name doesn't sound very "American."
L'Enfant Plaza
You've had a long day. Why don't you finish off your tour by catching a baseball game down near the waterfront at this stadium?
Nationals Park
