The Washington DC area is full of historical sites, arts, science, history, and culture. Here are the Top 15 things to do in Washington DC:

  1. Bike & Scooter Rentals: First things first! Hop on a bike and enjoy the miles of bike trails and open spaces in and around the monuments and the city.

  2. National Mall: With the Lincoln Memorial at one end and the Nations Capital at the other, the National Mall is a fantastic place. Flanked by museums and other historically significant monuments, memorials, and buildings, it is a sight to behold. You will get your steps in for sure!

  3. National Museum of African American History & Culture: As the most recent museum added to the National Mall, this museum is the only national museum devoted exclusively to the documentation of African American life, history, and culture. It was established by an Act of Congress in 2003, following decades of efforts to promote and highlight the contributions of African Americans. Free!

  4. The National Archives Museum: Home to the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights.

  5. The International Spy Museum: A private non-profit museum that documents the tradecraft, history, and contemporary role of espionage, it holds the most extensive collection of international espionage artifacts on public display.

  6. National Zoo: All-time favorite of kids everywhere! Catch a glimpse of roaring lions and enjoy the farm animals at the petting zoo! Red pandas and snow leopards await. Also, it’s free!

  7. Smithsonian Museum of Natural History:  Another crowd-pleaser! It also works with your budget, i.e., free!

  8. Udvar Hazy Air and Space Museum:  Since the Air and Space Museum on the Mall is undergoing massive renovations, check out Udvar Hazy, a short drive out of town. 

  9. National Gallery of Art + Museum of Modern Art: Founded as a gift to the nation, it serves as a center of visual art, education, and culture. A collection of more than 150,000 paintings, sculptures, decorative arts, photographs, prints, and drawings spans the history of Western art and showcases some of the triumphs of human creativity. Free!

  10. The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden: An art museum beside the National Mall for all contemporary art lovers. Stroll the gardens enjoy the fountain and coffee on the terrace.  

  11. Artechouse DC: Art & technology space with rotating immersive installations, plus a futuristic cocktail bar.

  12. Amazing Nightlife and Dining options in various D.C. neighborhoods like Georgetown, Adams Morgan, Dupont Circle, U Street, Eastern Market, and Capitol Hill. 

  13. National Harbor: The Capital Wheel is so much fun!

  14. Arlington National Cemetery: Pay your respects to all who laid their lives in the service of this great nation when you visit the United States military cemetery in Virginia, across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C. The 639 acres of land are home to the dead of the nation’s conflicts, beginning with the Civil War.
