Steven gave an great tour of Library of Congress. A hidden gem that is often overlooked in favor of other attractions. However, the architecture alone is worth the visit. Plus who knew they had the massive collection of comic books! For mosaic fans this is a wonderful

It was really fun! The guide knew a lot about the building and looked up answers to any questions he didn't know. The tour had some fun gems like a really old Spiderman comic, details about different authors and artists, and a look at some famous entertainers like the Gershwins.

We did a tour and it was totally worth it. There is a tunnel between the capitol and the library with shorter security for the capitol. The Supreme Court is also worth a visit and only foot steps away
