Each week, Cultural Tourism DC asks well-known Washingtonians to list their favorite attractions or events.

This week’s list comes from Christine Warnke, a senior governmental affairs adviser at Hogan Lovells. Here are some of her picks.

1) Hay Adams Hotel rooftop  - One has an amazing view of all of the city’s monuments and landmarks, including the White House, which you feel you could almost touch from the rooftop balcony.

2) Smithsonian Castle  -  The peaceful and beautiful courtyard garden there sets a beautiful stage for the  National Museum of African Arts and the National Museum of Asian Art (Arthur Sackler Museum).
