Since you will be spending the night at the Jefferson, you might want to visit the Edgar Allen Poe museum, St. John’s Church, St. Paul’s Church (across from the state capitol), Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Dooley Mansion (a Victorian at Maymont Park), the Valentine Museum, and the White House of the Confederacy. Before leaving take a ride down Monument Avenue that includes statues of famous war heroes, Arthur Ashe, and other people of note.

For Mary McElveen, who is from Baltimore, the Inner Harbor, the Baltimore Aquarium, and Camden Yards baseball stadium. Closer to home, I’ll add Nationals Park and Washington Cathedral.
