Visit our nation’s capitol. So much to see is free! Tour the U.S. Capitol Building, Historic Ford Theater, The U.S. Mint, The Smithsonian Museum ( Air and Space is the most popular), just to name a few. Explore the monuments and the memorials: The Jefferson, Lincoln, Washington, WWII and Vietnam Memorials can’t be missed. The best way to see the sights is with a Hop on/Hop off pass, they stop at over 40 locations and buses usually come by every 20 minutes. Decide is you want to pay a premium to stay be in the heart of DC or save some money and stay in a hotel outside the circle and use public transportation to get into town.
