Ok, politics are not a major draw to the nation's capital. In fact, locals may be fleeing their city for the first time ever in fear of what the little orange Cheeto is doing. However, politics aside, what must not be forgotten is how amazing this city truly is. So many exciting things are happening, and it's only getting better -- the food, trendy neighborhoods, experiential theater, fashion. And nothing will ever change the excellence of its museums or the fact that you can go on an urban hike within minutes -- or get away for the weekend in sublime countryside with very little hassle.

We've outlined some DC-specific experiences—Greats Of All Times—that shouldn't be missed. After all, if we want to bring the world closer together, we need to do so in our backyards as well.

Head out on a hike.
