Park
“I’m an avid hiker and Great Falls Park hosts my go-to (and favorite) local trails. It’s GORGEOUS and hard to believe this natural wonder is only 15 minutes away! If you’re not a big hiker but love nature, it’s still worth a visit just to see the falls (they’re an easy 5-10 min walk from the parking lot). The park actually spans across the Potomac River, so there’s a VA side and a MD side. I love both. :) Recommended hikes: River Trail on the VA side (easy-moderate) and Billy Goat Trail on the MD side (moderate-difficult). If you don’t have a National Parks pass, the entry fee is $15/car for a three-day pass (valid for both VA and MD sides of the park). But I know how to visit for free — ask me my secret!”

Monument / Landmark
“I recommend seeing this place at night. All the monuments are beautifully lit up, relatively walkable between each other, and it is so much less crowded and cool at night than during the day. Either side of the statue has his Inauguration Speech and his Gettysburg Address which are emotional and somehow never becomes irrelevant to current events. Across the reflecting pool from the Washington Monument and the US Capitol building, it's a stop along the National Mall that you have to see. ”
