Washington D.C., our nation’s capital, is home to a historical experience that is unlike any other. With endless sights to see and tour, D.C. is an exceptional travel destination. Home to the world-renown Smithsonian museums, as well as great local museums, you may find it’s harder to experience as much as you want during your time in the capital.
Some would argue that the preferable way to tour the capital is to take a tour or charter bus with other like-minded individuals. A DC tour bus will take you through the sights and show you the city without burdening you with things such as traffic and parking problems. This way you’ll be able to sit back and relax while taking your tour and can enjoy the visit with little inconvenience to yourself and/or travel companions.
Either way, if you travel by bus or on your own accord, Washington D.C. is an incredibly diverse city with a rich culture beyond the historical aspect of it all. You can go on a boat ride over the Potomac river and see the cherry blossoms in the spring. There are free shows at the Kennedy Center on designated days, as well as free museum access for most establishments. Some more exotic destinations include the embassies that are located near or inside of Washington D.C. where you can intermingle with people of different cultures, as well as performances and other cultural events.
The amount of recreational activities to do in Washington D.C. go far beyond what you expect when you initially arrive. There’s so much to interact with and do that it could almost seem overwhelming at first. Before you visit, be sure to create a list of destinations and activities so that your trip is organized and enjoyable.
