Three things most people don't do when they go to the Cathedral - and they should, in my humble view: (1) visit the crypt, which is v. cool because it is the burial site for Helen Keller and her teacher (2) stroll around the rose gardens and (3) attend an "evensong" to hear the children's choir sings psalms and anthems. It is basically a free concert.  A lot of people know about the wonderful book shop/gift shop, below ground - an excellent place to go for Christmas gifts. Anglophiles love it - boys' choir music, etc. And, of course, the Cathedral itself is wonderful: notice the moon rock in the "planetary" stain glass window.  I love to take out-of-town visitors here. They are always impressed.

The spectacular 30-story limestone building took 83 years to complete and contains numerous stained glass windows and gargoyles; located in upper Northwest D.C., the National Cathedral in has been the site of funeral and memorial services for almost all the U.S. presidents since 1893 and continues to hold regular services and attract visitors year round.
