Why locals love it

The architecture is classic American Gilded, which actually differs a bit from the Beaux-arts architecture of Europe. The history is literally written on the walls. The Library houses some of the greatest treasures of the country including two portraits of founder George Washington, the Declaration of Independance, a Guttenberg Bible and more.

Why you should visit it

It's beautiful. Lots of gorgeous pics possible for photographer types.

Special tip

Bring your good camera if you're a photographer. Bring your lap top if you're traveling and working.
