5 out-of-the-ordinary sights to see in Washington, DC


The Exorcist Stairs - Between Prospect Street NW and Canal Road, Washington, DC, USA

Close to an ExxonMobil petrol station in Georgetown, there is a very long and extremely steep staircase between a brick warehouse and a stone wall. While the stairs themselves are daunting, they have an interesting film history. They featured in the 1973 horror film “The Exorcist,” and were used for the final showdown between the demon who possessed young Regan and the self-sacrificing priest.
