If you’re looking for a fun way to see DC in an entirely new light, consider taking a cue from Hollywood. Some of DC’s most iconic neighborhoods are routinely captured on film.

In fact, some reports suggest more than 300 movies show DC-area landmarks, perhaps most notably some of the District’s historic sites. The movie “Forrest Gump” used the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool. You’ll also see it in the movie “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”.

If you want to see the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution or the Bill of Rights, you’ll find them at the National Archives Building. You don’t even have to leave home, though, to spot the building in the movie “National Treasure”.

With plenty to do, see and experience, Theodore Roosevelt Island presents a delightful site to visit and explore. Now maintained by the National Park Service, the island that once held farmland now serves as a tribute to a former president.

It’s said Roosevelt was a true conservationist and outdoorsman, and that’s evident across the island. You’ll find trails leading through wooded areas and swampy areas on the island. Visitors can even try and spot native birds, just as the former president likely enjoyed in his spare time.

As president, Roosevelt helped enact the protection of millions of acres of land across the United States, creating national parks, forests, bird reservations and game reserves. He also helped
