Washington, DC, is not all political wonks and Masonic conspiracies: It's also a highly walkable city, its diagonal avenues wide open to modern design. The Tidal Basin is monument central. This view from the Jefferson Memorial across toward the Washington Monument is one of the city's most stunning. The cherry trees along the basin, which bloom each April to great fanfare, are one of the capital's most stunning natural displays and the greatest legacy of First Lady Nellie Taft.
