Experience Washington: sights, tours and activities

There is a lot to see and do in Washington and it's likely you won't even scratch the surface on your first trip. Start at The Mall but don't miss out on the city's fantastic free museums as well! The nightlife and dining scene give other American cities a run for their money.

Essentials in Washington

The Mall: You'll find most all of Washington's major sights here: the White House, US Capitol Building, Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial… and on and on. This is the best place to start your city tour.

East End: For museums, head to the eastern part of The Mall and duck into the Newseum, International Spy Museum, National Portrait Gallery and the National Archive, where the Constitution is hiding.

City views: There are strict height restrictions in place so you'll notice there are no skyscrapers in Washington. For a great view of the city, head to the Old Post Office Tower. It's free and located centrally.

Visit Washington.org for more info.

Hotels and accommodation in Washington

Most visitors search for hotels in Washington’s East End or close to the Smithsonian. All that really matters however is access to the city's metro network. Save a penny or two and search for hotels further afield that are within walking distance of a station.
