With everything to see and do in Washington, it can be hard to narrow down your favorite places to a list of five. But it can be done.

Each week, Cultural Tourism DC asks well-known Washingtonians to talk about the D.C. sites they love. This week, Environmental Film Festival Executive Director Peter O’Brien shares his 5 favorite D.C. places. At the top of his list is the C&O Canal National Park.

Go to our Washingtology page to learn his other favorite places in D.C. -- and see how other Washingtonians have responded.
