white house

I visited the National Christmas Tree outside of the White House and also the U. S. Capitol Christmas Tree in Washington, D. C. in 2018. I was able to see both of the Christmas Trees with their lighting turned on at night as I visited after the National Christmas Tree Lighting was held on November 28, 2018, and the U. S. Capitol Christmas Tree Lighting was held on December 6, 2018. Both the National Christmas Trees and the U. S. Capitol Christmas Tree have their own websites where you can find out more information. I also visited the National Christmas Tree shortly before dark to better see the National Christmas Tree Railroad and train display underneath. Below are some pictures I took of both of the Christmas Trees.


I just returned home from a visit to Washington, D.C. It was mostly a business trip for a company I am currently working for this summer. Even so, I was still able to go and visit most of the popular attractions such as the Lincoln Memorial, White House, Vietnam Memorial, World War II Memorial, and Smithsonian Museums. Here are a few pictures from the trip.
