District of Columbia - Smithsonian Institution Ed Pick
America on the Move highlights the Smithsonian’s unparalleled and extremely popular transportation collections in new and creative ways. Using multimedia technology, immersive environments, and other theatrical techniques, America on the Move brings ships, trains, trucks, and automobiles back to life—or, more accurately, back to history. See these artifacts as they once were: moving people and products from place to place, a vital part of the nation’s transportation system, a vital part of our business, social, and cultural history.

This major exhibition examines how transportation—from 1876 to 1999—has shaped our American identity from a mostly rural nation into a major economic power, forged a sense of national unity, delivered consumer abundance, and encouraged a degree of social and economic mobility unlike that of any other nation of the world.

District of Columbia - Union Station
For over 90 years, Union Station has welcomed people to the most important city in the world. This magnificent building has even played host to 17 Presidents and countless foreign dignitaries. However, what may be most impressive is the fact that Union Station's marble floors echo with the footsteps of over 23.4 million people each year, making it the most visited site in all of Washington, D.C.

Union Station is the most exciting and dynamic shopping destination in the country. The quality and diversity of its stores have made it the choice of Presidents as well as millions of busy commuters and wide-eyed tourists each year.
