The city is often referred to as Paris on the Potomac due to the influence the French Architecture had on the design of the nation's capital. The Washington National Cathedral is a Gothic structure resembling Paris's Notre Dame, and the U.S. Capitol was inspired by the Palladian architecture of the Pantheon in Paris. The arches for Arlington Memorial Bridge were designed to look like the Pont Neuf, and the newly illuminated Washington Monument is DC's counterpart to the Eiffel Tower. Art lovers will appreciate IM Pei's glass pyramids at the National Gallery of Art, similar to those found at the Louvre.
The month long National Cherry Blossom is one of the most popular times to visit the city, kicking off the spring and summer season in late March. Thousands of cherry trees blossom around the title basin, while city-wide events create a sense of fun and tradition for couples and families alike.
