DC Day 7 157

There are so many places to visit in Washington, D.C. that some do not get the notice that they deserve. One of those is the United States Botanic Garden, which in next to the U.S. Capitol. This flower is one of its many orchids in an orchid room. There are many rooms in the conservatory, including tropical and desert habitats and special theme rooms. It is a great place to go on a hot summer day. Winter is probably also a very good time to go.

Around the building are many beautiful outdoor gardens, too. The new container gardens in front of the USBG allow visitors to enjoy the beauty even before and after the facility is closed.

Put the USBG on your next DC itinerary.
