Shopping in Washington DC - authentic goods, best outlets, malls and boutiques

WASHINGTON If you are going to buy souvenirs in local stores, be sure to check whether they have the inscription "made in China". Many "American" souvenirs, such as busts of Barack Obama or Donald Trump, are produced by enterprising Asians and exported to the United States today.
Washington has been the capital of the United States for more than 200 years. Founded in 1791, it was named after the first president - George Washington. It is important to know that the … Open
Buying your favorite products in a gift shop, do not forget that VAT is not included in the price tag in America. So, add 7% to the purchase price. There is ruling “souvenirs are more expensive in places popular with tourists in Washington. Pharmacies are the only exception. In the United States, a pharmacy is not just a place where you can buy medicines but also a small supermarket.
You can find good souvenirs for a reasonable price in places that are located close to the main attractions. If you want a wider choice then look for special stores. The vast majority of products for tourists are connected to the White House in one way or another. A soda opener with Obama or Trump, the President's watch, the President's Slippers, the President's jacket, the President's robe, the President's soap, shampoos, and lotions – sometimes it seems that there is no President's thing that can't be found in the city. You can also buy comics with the current President or with the heads of the United States of the past, doll sets for children "Dress Trump", and even bibs with the image of the President. Large-scale models of planes and limousines of the US President and dozens of dolls of famous politicians of different years deserve special attention. Copies of the Capitol, the Lincoln Memorial, and the White House are in stock everywhere. You can find a souvenir copy of the Declaration of Independence, a set with parchment and fountain pens, a lot of caps with the words "FBI", "CIA", "NASA" and even the pens that you can use in space. However, they don’t cost too much, so you can buy them as a souvenir. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
Be sure to visit the local zoo while on vacation in Washington. The child will be able to see more than two thousand species of different animals here. Majestic tigers, mysterious cougars, … Open
If you get to the city on Christmas Eve, you can buy a lot of Christmas decorations with the American flag, Air Force One, the Capitol or city landmarks, or even with the President or first lady. You can also buy more practical souvenirs. You should look for them in the sweets department of any city supermarket. For example, a jar of peanut paste or a package of marshmallows, red toffees, chocolates from local manufacturers, Butterfinger candies with peanut butter filling, and even Canadian maple syrup will be a great souvenir from Washington. The original Snickers will also be a good purchase.
WASHINGTON However, tourists should pay attention not only to sweets in Washington. Good brandy in souvenir packages, local beer and wine, and small packs of coffee from Starbucks, produced in a limited series – all this is quite cheap and will remind you of the trip for a long time.
Washington's cuisine is eclectic, incredible even by the standards of the United States with its diverse culinary traditions. Africans, Asians, descendants of colonizers from France and … Open
If you want to buy some original souvenir, then look for dream catchers or jewelry from Indians in small shops. There are not many of them here. So you should be afraid of fakes. However, such things are inexpensive and look beautiful. You can buy a cowboy hat, a souvenir revolver or, for example, a horseshoe as a souvenir for those who are fond of cowboy themes.
Washington is a haven for superhero fans. You can buy thousands of issues of comics, from the most popular to rare, from series for children to dark Noir graphic novels like "Guardians". It's also easy enough to find captain America figurine, Thor's hammer, or Wonder Woman's lasso in the city. There are still hundreds of variations of such products related to the stories of Marvel and DC, "Star Wars", "Star Trek", "Babylon 5", Disney movies, and a dozen other film universes.
If Americans talk about the city of Washington, they always add D.C., which means District of Columbia. This is necessary to avoid confusion with the state of the same name. Today, about six … Open
Fans of everything vintage will love the local souvenir posters "Hello from the past", souvenir records or antiques. The uniforms of local sports teams and accessories for the game are very popular here. For example, you can buy baseballs decorated with the American flag.
Washington in Winter The selection of clothing from both local and global brands is large in Washington. There are many interesting options in the sections of teen and youth fashion. American teenagers like to emphasize their individuality. Local cosmetics are also good. If you decide to purchase equipment, be sure to read the instructions. Almost all household appliances will only work in a network with a voltage of 110. However, there are no problems with laptops, cameras, and smartphones. You only have to buy a charging adapter.

Last summer, approximately 80,000 Bike Day Passes were sold in July, reaching an increase of 45% compared to 2019. For 2021, additional 15,000 bikes were brought to such popular routes as Bern to Brig and Zurich to Chur. The strong demand in 2021 is higher than supply which is still quite low.
