WASHINGTON -- I slipped out from the Renaissance Dupont Circle into a frozen wall of sleety rain, and it was perfect: Today was a museum day.
Of course, I had to safely manage the trips in between museums! The overnight icing had made icicles of my original plan to grab a bike from the pervasive Capitol Bikeshare program, so I set out on foot towards the National Mall.
Being the capitol of the United States, Washington, D.C., is a hotbed of cultural activities. Every cultural organization at least has an office here, which means that there is a critical mass of excellent arts here.
