Washington DC Things to Do

It may be hard to believe, but in Washington DC, things to do are as numerous as interns on Capitol Hill. Tourists might want to start with the obligatory visits to the Lincoln Memorial and Washington Monument, but America’s capital city has much more to offer if you dig a little deeper. The museums in DC, for starters, are some of the best in the world. It’ll probably take you more than a week to visit all the branches of the Smithsonian Institution, so pick one to explore during the day and then head over to DC Improv, a decades-old subterranean comedy club that hosts nightly shows.
