Rome wasn’t built in a day and Washington D.C. can’t be seen in a day. There’s just so much to see and do there! The city was designed by a Parisian, Pierre L’Enfant, and it still possesses the Parisian charm. By law, buildings can’t be higher than the width of the street they front, you can always see the sky.
There are more than two dozen free museums, and our recommendation is to go see those, along with lounging in restaurants and cafes, instead of just staring at the White House and The Washington Monument (which can be seen from all around the town).
The Smithsonian Institute
The national treasures stashed in the Smithsonian Institute cover a wide range of subjects, from art to space exploration, from archeology to technology. Don’t even think about seeing everything at once, because there are so many exhibitions that you possibly can’t manage to do it.
Save time to see IMAX movies at the National Air, Space and History Museum. It would be best to start at the Smithsonian Institution Building, because you can get a map and information on all of the museums.
After indulging your brain with information, why not take a cool, relaxing walk through Georgetown, the capital’s historic waterfront. Georgetown is in a state of constant activity in our modern time, and it’s without any doubt a shopaholic’s paradise.
The streets of Georgetown are packed with restaurants of every nationality, so after a tour of the historic sites and some shopping, enjoy a delicious meal at a local restaurant.
Wolftrap Farm Park and the Kennedy Center
Only 20 minutes away From Washington D.C. there is a National Pak dedicated to the performing arts. It’s located in Vienna, Virginia.
Concerts at this park soothe everyone’s taste. Outdoor concerts are featured in the summer and indoor performances are held the rest of the year.
On the other hand, if you prefer live theatrical productions then be sure to go see a show at the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts.
Performances ranging from musicals to concerts by the National Symphony can be seen there. You can also see a free show at the Millennium Stage.
Old Town Alexandria
This historic town just over the Potomac River is a lively waterfront, with a lot of activities to offer. From colonial houses, public parks, museums, churches, unique shops and restaurants, Old Town Alexandria has it all. Enjoy a walking tour and learn something new.
