There is always something new to explore in Washington, D.C., including a wealth of new museum exhibits, new shows to attend, or a politcal meeting or rally to join for a cause. Of course, many Washingtonians are "new" themselves -- the city is more transient than many others in the United States due to the cyclical nature of its inhabitants, many of whom come and go at each electoral cycle. Here are a few of our favorite "new" things to visit: 

Union Market
The city's newest fresh food market, this weekday and weekend warehouse extravaganza brings many of the city's finest chefs and food purveyors together in one large space. Enjoy artisinal meats, fresh produce, an on-site wine shop and spice market, or food-truck style vendors. 

The MLK Jr. Memorial
The city's newest memorial opened just a few months ago. Read exerpts from the "I Have A Dream" speech inscribed on the sides or just marvel at the visage of the famed civil rights leader. 

New Lawmakers
President Obama may have enjoyed a second term re-election, but many of Washignton's most powerful faces are new. Congressmen and senators galore began their first terms in early 2013, and many of these "freshman" lawmakers are already making names on the hill.
