Our letter of the day is U, and we have two sites to explore.
First up is Union Station. Located a few blocks from the Capitol building, Union Station is the central passenger rail station in the city. This is where you'll go if you need to catch the Amtrak train to New York, Philly, or Boston. There's also a Metro station here.

For you soccer fans, make sure to catch a DC United game while you're in town. The fan base for D.C.'s professional soccer team is smaller than that of the Nats or Caps, but every bit as rabid. When the fans stomp in support of the team, it shakes the entire stands so you feel it in your legs, no matter where you're sitting. It's pretty fun, actually :)
