No visit to D.C. is complete without getting a selfie outside the White House.
Washington, DC is home to an absolute plethora of world-class museums. Some popular options include the International Spy Museum which on 12 May opened its doors at a brand-new, purpose built building at L'Enfant Plaza, the awesome Museum of Women in the Arts, and of course, the Smithsonian Institution’s collection of 17 FREE different museums and the National Zoo.
The National Mall area is quite large, so a bike tour is a great way to get to the main monuments and memorials. The biking is easy as it is all flat and you will get some great insights from your guide. There is also an evening tour where the crowds are less dense, the weather is cooler and the views of illuminated monuments are magnificent.
This is a great way to get your bearings and to learn about the city with a guided tour. You can stay on the bus or trolley for the full circuit or get on and off at the designated stops.
Many of the monuments of Washington, D.C. stand on one picturesque side of the National Mall. Some are even open late at night and their illumination makes night time a prime time to visit. Some of the top to visit are Thomas Jefferson Memorial, Washington Monument, National World War II Memorial, Martin Luther King Jr Memorial and the Lincoln Memorial.
This is the final resting place of more than 400,000 fallen heroes from Iraq, Afghanistan and veterans from WW1, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, the Cold War and America’s Civil War. Established in 1864, the cemetery is still fully operational today, conducting an average of 27 funerals each day.
This idyllic, tree lined suburb is one of the city’s most upmarket. There are plenty of beautiful mansions, high-end shops, riverfront restaurants and the picturesque Georgetown University.
