Washington. D.C. is known as one of the most liberal places in America.
Surrounded by counties teaming with bureaucrats and lobbyists feeding off the 4 trillion dollars a year federal tax trough, D.C. is home to government workers and leftist politicians… and all their staffers.
And let’s face it…
… D.C. is without question the worst place in the U.S. for 2nd Amendment lovers.
But while the city may be liberal, conservative Proud American Travelers can still appreciate so much of our country’s history and heritage located in our Nation’s Capital.
The monuments and history reveal the blood, sweat, and tears that formed America and all her glory.
And if you can stomach the leftist protestors holding up signs in the streets because they’re angry at the latest perceived injustice, consider booking a trip to D.C. and check out some of the best places for conservatives to explore.
World War II Memorial
Located at the eastern edge of the reflecting pool resides a stunning memorial designed to honor the 16 million heroes who faithfully served our country in World War II, including more than 400,000 who sacrificed their lives fighting to defend our country.
The 56 granite pillars are said to represent the unity of America during WWII, representing each state and territory, including one for D.C. Looking between the pillars, you can gaze into the commemorative area honoring those who lost their lives, as well as get a glance of the rainbow pool and the shooting waterfalls.
This iconic memorial that honors America’s “Greatest Generation” is even lit up at night and is truly a sight to see.
And who knows, you may even see groups of WWII vets visiting while you are there – many organizations fly them in to see the memorials dedicated in their honor.
If you’re up for walking, you can check out a few of the other war memorials as well – Korean War Veterans Memorial, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and the WWI Memorial.
The Museum Of The Bible
Enter through the gigantic 40-foot bronze doors and be filled with awe and amazement where an entire museum, in the heart of one of the most liberal cities in the country, is dedicated to the Bible.
This six-floor museum is full of exhibits and history that tells the story of the Bible and how this single-greatest book impacted the entire world.
This museum is state-of-the-art and includes artifacts, interactive touch tables, and virtual reality technology.
Each floor has a theme, some allowing you to walk through stories of the Bible and others emphasizing the history of the Bible and the way it changed societies throughout the centuries.
Special exhibits occur throughout the year and one of its current exhibits is the Stations of the Cross, which portrays the last hours of Jesus’ life.
In one of the most liberal cities in America, the Bible Museum stands like a light, drawing people in to learn about the Bible and the impact it’s had – and still has – on the world.
A favorite President of many conservatives, the Jefferson Memorial is dedicated to one of America’s greatest founding fathers.
Jefferson, a revolutionary figure in America’s history, was the primary author of the Declaration of Independence and believed in the right to escape British rule.
He boldly declared that all men have certain unalienable rights and that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
When visiting D.C., be sure to check out this open-air monument made from granite and marble, displaying its iconic columns.
Inside the memorial, you’ll find engraved quotes from Jefferson, one of them reading, “I have sworn upon the alter of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man”.
Arlington National Cemetery
A somber place, one can’t help but feel overwhelmed with gratitude and emotion visiting the resting place of the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice to defend our freedom.
The rolling green hills reveal the history and stories of those who gave everything for our country.
Funerals still take place to this day, and many of the graves are covered with flowers and American flags.
The Tomb of the Unknown Solider is a monument that sits at the top of the hill where an unidentified American soldier from WWI was laid to rest.
Meant as a dedication to all of those who lost their lives without ever being identified, the words on the tomb read, “Here rests in honored glory an American solider known but to God”.
Even more moving, Army soldiers guard the tomb 24 hours a day, 365 days a year – and while many soldiers volunteer for this honor, only a small percentage are selected after undergoing vigorous training.
One can’t help but leave Arlington National Cemetery humbled and eternally grateful for those who gave everything to preserve the freedoms Americans hold so dear.
