Some Presidents Were Larger Than Life

Did you know that, on the day of his inauguration, Abraham Lincoln had to be sneaked into the Capitol? There was a bounty on his head and Southern spies were gunning for him.

Washington Dc is full of little Easter eggs. Wherever you look, there's something to marvel at. Don't believe us? in 1980, the National Cathedral held a competition- they wanted a new gargoyle. Hundreds of kids cast their votes. Today, thanks to that competition, one of the most prestigious religious buildings on the Hill has a massive stone Darth Vader. That's the sort of oftentimes bizarre things you'll come upon in Washington DC.

"I've been a resident of Washington for over 30 years. Friend of mine wanted me to go on the tour with him. Blew my mind. Full of interesting nuggets that really make you appreciate your town in a whole new light."
