Have attended numerous events at Strathmore and all were delightful. Convenient parking close by, inside acoustics are very good, they offer a wide range of events, snacks/drinks are lovely, and in summer the outdoor concerts are fun.

I live very near the Woodland Sanctuary and besides its beauty and wonderful wildlife and vegetation, the people are gracious and caring. Thanks to the proximity, I get to go there frequently. Even when I don't thanks to being close I see the most wonderful array of birds and butterflies in my back yard. I urge everyone to support its goals and projects.

Even in the winter there are plenty of vendors with choices for every menu. Farmers offer apples, root vegetables and some magnificent mushrooms! The Cherry Glen Goat Cheese Company sells Monocacy Ash, Monocacy Gold and Monocacy Chipotle (all named for a local river in Maryland); other stands sell local organic meat products, eggs and bakery goods (from Atwaters in Baltimore). One of the best things about this farmer's market is that there are plenty of places to have breakfast, brunch or lunch if shopping makes you hungry.

We took our friend from Zambia to DC, and she was so interested in seeing the Lincoln Memorial, as this President is known world-wide. I'd been there previously, but visiting again gave me a new appreciation for the simple beauty, something President Lincoln would have loved. It's a great place to bring families to talk about the price that was paid to keep this country unified.

Sligo Creek is a beautiful place to enjoy some time in nature. Close to many neighborhoods in the Silver Spring/Takoma Park area, it offers a paved path for walking and running. During summer, it offers shade and cooler temperatures. During winter, it provides some protection from wind and cold gusts. It's a great place to walk dogs, too.

This memorial to Korean War veterans consists of the Pool of Remembrance and the triangular Field of Service depicting 19 soldiers on the field of combat.
We saw this during a night tour and there was no lighting near the statues. I have pictures from my oldest daughter's night tour a few years back that showed subtle light cast on the statues at night. There was trash among the statues too. I hope this is just out of the ordinary and that this memorial gets as much attention as any other. Don't let my review discourage you from seeing it, even with neglect it is a powerful tribute.

A living memorial to the Holocaust, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum inspires citizens and leaders worldwide to confront hatred, prevent genocide, and promote human dignity. Tickets are only needed from March 1 to August 31 to visit the Museum's Permanent Exhibition, which tells the history of the Holocaust from 1933 to 1945. Exhibitions Include: Permanent Exhibition: The Holocaust Spanning three floors, the self-guided Permanent Exhibition presents a narrative history of the Holocaust and features historical artifacts, photographs, and film footage. Personal objects and the concluding eyewitness testimonies highlight the stories of individuals. Recommended for ages 11 or older. The Portal: A Real-Time Conversation with People Forced to Flee Persecution The Shared Studios Portal allows you to have a face-to-face conversation with someone in another part of the world-as if you are standing in the same room. Through this installation, visitors will be able to converse in real time with displaced persons or refugees in Iraq, Jordan, and Germany Remember the Children: Daniel's Story Representing the experiences of many Jewish children during the Nazi era, "Daniel" narrates through his diary the history of the Holocaust in ways that children can understand. Recreated environments present life in a middle-class German home, in a Jewish ghetto in occupied Poland, and finally at the Auschwitz concentration camp. The exhibition is explicit without being graphic. Recommended for ages 8 or older. Some Were Neighbors: Collaboration & Complicity in the Holocaust Some Were Neighbors: Collaboration & Complicity in the Holocaust addresses one of the central questions about the Holocaust: How was it possible? The central role of Hitler and other Nazi Party leaders is indisputable. Less well understood is these perpetrators' dependence on countless others for the execution of Nazi racial policies. Within Nazi Germany and across German-dominated Europe, circles of collaboration and complicity rippled throughout governments and societies wherever victims of persecution and mass murder lived.
Graphic description and historical account of the racial atrocities committed by the Nazi’s during WW II. Starts with the history of the rise of the Nazi Party and Hitler in Germany and their sweeping expansion throughout continental Europe and their inhuman treatment of the Jewish peoples in concentration camps. The graphics pull no punches and it is impossible to leave this memorial/ museum unmoved.
