My favorite attraction in DC is the Metro System.

Aha, I have to agree, if it were on this poll I woulda voted for it. It's like the Ritz Carlton of subways.

That is the first thing I thought of when I read the poll question. Otherwise, I picked the Smithsonian. Some of the buildings are impressive; however, the volume of artifacts and the price (FREE!) helped tip the scale for me.

I was thinking more of monuments and the like, but the subways there are some of the best in the country & some of my favorite to ride on.

The Smithsonian is undoubtedly one of Washington's greatest assets, but if I had to choose ONE monument, it would be the Washington Monument, if only for its timeless simplcity and eloquence. I rather wish they'd stop plopping memorials on the Mall. If the area gets too cluttered, it won't have the same impact.

I love Meridan Hill Park..

I used to live by Meridian Hill Park -- we always called it Malcolm X Park -- it's pretty commonly called that -- I had always heard that the district would not officially change it's name to honor Malcolm X. Found a website that said the following:

" In 1969, a bill was introduced to Congress to formally rename the park in honor of civil rights leader Malcolm X. The bill failed, but the park still carries the name informally."website

Here are some pics from that site:
