Washington D.C. Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia

 

Take in the many splendors of the nation’s capital when you arrive at Washington, D.C.

Your Washington, D.C. tour should start at the National Mall, where you’ll find monuments, memorials, and government buildings instead of tons of shopping. If you’d like to get around town easily but don’t want to rent a car, the Capital Bikeshare program will let you cruise around the city without wasting gas or getting stuck in traffic.

Check out the Watergate Hotel and Kennedy Center when you stop at Foggy Bottom, then move on to Georgetown, the oldest district in D.C. It’s filled with 18th-century buildings and, of course, the university itself. After a stop at the National Cathedral, make your way to the Smithsonian National Zoo, the perfect stop for the young and the young at heart.

If you’re feeling the need to channel your inner 007, go to the International Spy Museum, and learn about the covert operations and intelligence agencies that have shaped the world we live in. Of course, you can’t enjoy any Washington, D.C., tourism without admiring the White House, so make sure that’s on your list too.

  1. I have lived in the Washington DC metro area for my whole life . I read a few of the your guys comments and here a respond to a few of your guys question

    Public transportation is the way to go .

    Stay in Maryland or Virginia and take the metro down to DC,

    Take your own bags to the stores there is bag tax in DC

    For Night Life go to DuPont Circle or Adams Morgen

    1. amerikanın devletinden nefret etsem de şehirlerini izlediğimde, google earthde gezdiğimde, ve rastgele bir eyaletten rastgele bir yere sokak görünümü yaptığımda sanki evim orasıymış gibi hissediyorum. sweet home alabama diyip samanlar arasında yatmak, iş arkadaşımla empire state buildingden manhattanı izlemek, las vegasda bir dayıyla jack daniels içmek, kızımla central parkda yuvarlanmak isterdim. keşke georgiada doğsaydım da liseye bisikletle gitseydim, ormanda arkadaşlarla ağaç ev yapsaydık, para biriktirip gizlice orada bira içseydik, babamın garajında arkadaşlarımla highschool band kursaydık metal çalsaydık… daha yazacak çok şey var ama, beynim dondu yine düşünemiyorum. şimdi ben amerikayı seviyorum diye vatan haini ilan edilirim ama ben kapitalizmi ya da trumpı seviyorum demiyorum ki, Atatürkü ve tarihimizi seviyorum. Ama amerikanın şehirlerini, mahallelerini, sokaklarını, yaşam tarzını ve dilini seviyorum. I don’t belong here, pal.

  2. I’m a New Yorker, but I’ve been to DC many times:

    The World War II Memorial is awesome

    The Smithsonian Air and Space Museum is probably the most popular Smithsonian museum (and it does get crowded on weekends and holidays)

    I haven’t been to the Botanic Garden, but I’ve heard great things about it. During the Christmas holiday, they have a model train show

    I haven’t been to the Newseum. Note that it is NOT a Smithsonian Museum and it cost money to get in (ditto for the  International Spy Museum)

    Skip Georgetown. There’s nothing that stands out about it and it’s a 20 minute walk from the nearest Metro station (Foggy Bottom/GWU)

    The Zoo is cool. I’ve been there once. The famous panda spends most of the day sleeping and generally comes out only in the morning. If you’re taking the Metro to the Zoo, take it to Cleveland Park and walk downhill

    There are a bunch of shops and restaurants at Union Station, Pentagon City Mall, and Tysons Corner Mall.

    The DC Metro is generally reliable (though it has its bad days) and clean, albeit expensive.
