"A Natural Tribute"
This Potomac River island is an apt memorial to the conservation-minded Teddy Roosevelt, the nation's 26th president. The 88-acre wildlife refuge can be explored along winding footpaths. In a clearing at the island's center stands a 22-foot bronze statue of Roosevelt, accompanied by inscriptions of his eloquent thoughts on nature and conservation. Access the island from Virginia via George Washington Memorial Parkway. A pedestrian bridge connects the island to a parking lot on the Virginia shoreline.

Georgetown Waterfront was an industrial area bustling with lumber and cement factories. However, due to the efforts and suggestions of National Capital Planning Commission Georgetown Waterfront Park has now been developed. The grassy place offers panoramic views of the Kennedy Center and the Key Bridge against the back-drop of the enormous skyline. Visitors to the park can spend their time biking or walking around the park or simply gazing at the spectacular views.

Best known for hosting the Rosslyn Jazz Festival, the Gateway Park provides both relaxing and recreational opportunities for adults and children. It provides stellar views of the Fourth of July fireworks, while the skywalk offers pleasing views of Georgetown. Picnicking, biking or taking a simple stroll during dusk while kids play in the resident sandbox are few of the activities one may indulge in here.

The Rosslyn Metro Station is home to one of the longest escalators in the world. Measuring up to 207 feet (63 meters), a journey on this mechanized stairway takes more than three minutes. It is hard to imagine what happens if the escalator stops midway; but according to lamenting travelers, that's quite a possibility. The well maintain metro station is frequented by commuters as well as tourists who come to see the escalator.

The image of five marines and a navy corpsman raising an American flag atop Mount Suribachi during World War II is known to every American schoolchild. Seen in person, the bronze 78-foot statue is sure to stir emotions. The sculpture near Arlington National Cemetery, commemorates the 6,800 soldiers who died during World War II in order to capture the tiny Japanese island of Iwo Jima. Today, the memorial is dedicated to all U.S. Marines who died in battle. A Marine Parade is held at 7p Tuesdays throughout the summer.

One of the most popular rail trails in the country and also the most used, the Capital Crescent Trail is a pleasant 11-mile (17.70 kilometers) stretch covering through Georgetown on Water Street till Silver Spring. Set on the once deserted Georgetown Branch rail line, it is a haunt for rollerbladers, hikers, skateboarders, walkers, bikers and joggers. Most of the trail is asphalt and is also used for commuting. Winding through parks, wooded areas, water bodies and local attractions, it is indeed a landmark in the locality and the nearby areas.

This post office warrants special attention due to the rather monumental building in which it is housed. Originally built as a customs house, it is made of sturdy granite and has two sets of shallow steps, also granite, leading up to its over sized doors. The inside is majestic and still functions as a regular post office. A visit here kills two birds with one stone; you can view a historic site, and buy stamps for those postcards you have been meaning to send!
