Because your last visit to DC was an eighth grade field trip spent desperately trying to make out with Cindy Troncale at the Alexandria Holiday Inn Express, perhaps another getaway to our nation's capital is in order? Lonely Planet thinks so, having just named Washington, DC, the number one city in the world to visit next year.
And why not? Free museums, cherry blossoms, Kerry Washington (!!); it's only the greatest capital in the greatest country in the world.
Although assuming you thought Mr. Smith Goes to Washington was the absolute worst, LP's top 10 also highlighted some fascinating, smaller (not at all political) towns around the globe like El Chaltén in Argentina, Plovdiv, Bulgaria, and skiing fave, Zermatt, Switzerland.
