Almost all of D.C.’s tourists go to the Mall, a two-mile long stretch of parkway that has many of the city’s monuments. The Smithsonian museums are also there. D.C. itself is a vibrant city that often has little to do with monuments, politics, or those white neoclassical buildings. The Smithsonian Institution is definitely a “must see.” Don’t trick yourself, however, you haven’t really seen D.C. until you’ve been out and around the city.

Washington D.C. is a walking and biking city. It has been cited as the fittest city in the country for several years running. Its residents and visitors get a lot of exercise simply getting around the city! Even if you plan on taking the Metro, bus, or driving, which is not recommended, to get downtown, many times you will find yourself walking for the rest of the day.
