Planning your trip can help you make the most of your three-day trip. This latest planning guide can help you cover all the must-see venues on your Washington, DC bus tours.
Your Three-Day Adventure
Before you go, decide the timing for each trip across the city. Plotting the timing each day will help ensure you cover as much ground as possible. Our recommendations include:
Start your day with a visit to the National Mall. Here, you’ll discover most of the city’s famous monuments and memorials. Take time to see the captivating Washington Monument. And take pictures at the iconic Lincoln Memorial.
Make the Whitehouse your venue for the early afternoon. The Whitehouse is a short walk away from the Washington Monument, and visitors can often tour the grounds and walk inside. Make sure you book your Whitehouse tour in advance.
Walk to the Capitol in the evening. The Capitol building hosts the offices for congress and other nearby politicians. The building’s architecture dominates the Washington, DC skyline and is the perfect site for an early evening stroll. At this time, you might also enjoy a visit to the nearby Library of Congress.
Today’s the day to explore the capital’s many museums. Start the day with a visit to the Smithsonian museums, located between the Washington Monument and the Capitol building. One popular option is the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, which offers engaging exhibits for children and adults.
The National Geographic Museum is the perfect spot for the early afternoon time on day two. The Museum boasts exhibits covering natural conservation and the science behind our eco-systems. The ideal way to spend a few hours on day two of your Washington, DC bus tours.
We recommend you leave day three as open as possible. You will discover several exciting activities as you make your way across the city. You might also spend the day exploring one of the other areas of the region, such as Georgetown, which is on the banks of the Potomac River and predates the establishment of Washington, DC.
