"The Must-see's of downtown D.C."
East Street in D.C. starts right at Union station, making it a great launching point into the city. Soon after this, it passes the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, which is both spectacular and somber, but definetely a must. One very interesting factoid along this street is that the assassination place of Abraham Lincoln lies here, at Ford's theater. Lastly, the street passes by the Freedom Plaza, and ends up roughly around the white house. D.C.'s traffic is not very bad, but it wouldn't be a bad idea to walk when sightseeing in this area.
