Trip Review: What to Do in Washington DC
Besides enjoying the Park Hyatt Washington Park Executive Suite and the great food options in the city, we also took part in a lot of activities during our visit to Washington DC. Naturally, the city has lots of museums, and they are not necessarily all government related. If you visit during the National Cherry Blossom Festival, you will have a daily list of festivities to choose from as well. Here’s a short list of what to do in Washington DC.
What to Do in Washington DC
Segway tours are a popular way to quickly see all the popular buildings and memorials spread through the National Mall area, and I highly recommend it unless you want to spend a long period of time at one specific attraction. We went with Private DC Segway Tours and thought they were awesome. You’ll also want to contact your local Congressman’s office months before your visit if you want to tour the White House as they will need time to try to secure you tickets. Even then, it’s not guaranteed that you’ll receive tickets. On the other hand, it’s very easy to set up a small guided tour of the U.S. Capitol Building through your Congressman’s office, and I recommend doing that as well.
The Main Point
If you are the active touristy type, you won’t get bored in Washington DC. Best of all, many of the activities are free! Of our activities, we only paid for the Segway tour and the International Spy Museum. If you are on a budget, you don’t need a Segway to see all the sights along the National Mall as it’s walkable plus it will be good exercise. As for museums, many of them have free admission.
