You will not be stuck for things to do in Washington DC as there are plenty of historic attractions and world famous sights in this great city. We asked you over on our Facebook page for your top Washington DC tips. Here's what you told us...
Go to a Redskins game
Aled Arnett Watson says:
One thing - get your ass to a skins game if you can, that place is ace, the atmosphere is excellent and follow that up by visiting the Irish bar opposite Hooters for a couple of Guinness!
Culture by day, party by night
Juliana Andrea says:
Smithsonian museums in the day, partying in Georgetown at night.
Check out a museum dedicated to news and journalism
Austin Cole Beasley says:
Visit the National Museums
Sarah Ewing says:
Visit the National Museums. You can see the Hope Diamond or Dorothy's Ruby Slippers. And it's all FREE!
Views from the Old Post Office Tower
Christopher Tyler W says:
Hands down, the free view look-out at the little known Old Post Office Tower on Pennsylvania Avenue, before 4 pm... Go there and take the elevator (provided by the Park Services) and enjoy the view!
Get around the city
Burleigh Nevills says:
Walk as much as possible and when not walking take the public transportation.
Maude Beaulieu-Lahaie says:
Or better yet, take the bike share!
Get around using the Circulator
Lisa Blanco says:
Get a day pass for the Circulator. Even though there are only a few routes, they are on a 10 min schedule, loop to a variety of sites (museum, history, parks, monuments, architecture) to visit, and are an economical version of those expensive tour buses so you can see some things while your feet are recuperating. Even if you do one trip, at $1 it is a bargain! It stops 1/2 block from the IYH.
Museums and monuments
Nata Cherkashyna says:
"Tourist" tip - Air and Space Museum and walking in the evening to the Lincoln memorial.
Cameron Hawke says:
Hit up 5 guys burgers! Best burgers ever! Huge and tasty, with free peanuts too.
Anil Polat says:
Visit Pupatella in Arlington, VA just outside the city.
Visit the Capitol Building
Anil Polat says:
Take a free tour of the Capitol Building.
Library of Congress
Caroline Grambo says:
The LOC is the most beautiful building in the whole city. It's also very near the best burgers in the world - Good Stuff Eatery!
Heels and Wheels says:
Take advantage all the free sights. They're the most important things anyway, but make sure to visit the Holocaust Museum. Best museum I've ever been to.
See how a dollar is made
Simon Colasante says:
Bureau of Printing and Engraving to see how our nation's money is printed. Although it doesn't cost a red cent to visit, it does cost either one of two things during tourist peak season - An early morning visit for the privilege of reserving a time, or scheduling an appointment with your local congressman or senator. Unfortunately, I wasn't smart enough to do the latter and therefore had to deal with a bunch of chatter-mouthing nitwits and clucks during the tour.
Hopefully these top Washington DC tips will help you make to most of your visit to Washington.
