    These aren’t particularly unique, but have you done the Spanish Steps or the old Capitol columns at the arboretum? Perhaps middle of the street somewhere nice and leafy? (Say Swann St, Quincy Pl, Emerald St, etc)

  • How about Peirce Mill in Rock Creek Park?

    Norwegian Christmas tree (annual donation) inside Union Station. Enchanting! DC distinctive!

    We tend to head to the Arboretum for all our family photos. The columns, the cool bridges on the fern valley, the bonsai garden, and the trail through the Asian valley have been the backdrop for many of our family photos.

    You can get some nice pics at the US Botanical Gardens by the US Capitol building. You could take pics and have no idea you were on the mall.

  • Love that photo and that spot! Extra sweet on such a horrible day. My (very large) extended family always comes here for Thanksgiving, and our tradition is always to take a walk up Beech Drive to the boulder bridge, where the kids go down to the creek, haul up the biggest rock they can collectively carry, and toss it off the bridge. With 2 marines, one Army and all of them over 6 feet tall now, we have had some pretty big splashes lately!

    Last year we walked thru Roosevelt Island and ended up with a bunch of good ones. We put Santa hats on our girls and just let them loose with me photo-journaling the hike and posing them a bit. There’s a spot with rocks & boulders on the river where the city is just in view on the other side that made a nice background.
