In order to get the most out of DC, we recommend that you plan to stay for three nights. There are many free places to go. Most museums are free and can take from 2 to 8 hours. Some people only stay one or two nights and are disappointed because they’re rushed and can't do as many interesting and educational activities as they’d like.
Our manager formerly served in a number of US government agencies, like the Department Of State, USAID, inspector general for Iraq reconstruction, the US Army, National Institute Of Health and the Government Accountability Office.
