Ride Bikes: Crystal’s favorite thing to do is jog or ride bikes along the Potomac River and Tidal Basin paths. There is a bike rental shop right in Georgetown , as well as many Capital Bikeshare stations around the city. Join a bike tour of the city, or explore the many bike paths in DC on your own. It can be a long walk from the National Mall to the Jefferson Memorial, but it’s a quick ride on your bike.
Monuments by Moonlight tour: Andrea thinks this tour by Old Town Trolley is the best way to view the monuments. Also on Andrea’s “Must See DC” list are Arlington Cemetery and the World War II Memorial.
Shopping: Maresha’s favorite thing to do in DC is shop! She likes to walk along M Street and up Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown to browse in all the unique boutiques & stores. Click for a list of Georgetown shops.
Beer: Marvin likes to enjoy the variety of beers offered at Bier Baron in Dupont Circle. Formerly known as the Brickskeller, this restaurant offers 500 different beers from around the world! Another local restaurant with a great beer selection is Pizzeria Paradisio in Georgetown.
Open Top Sightseeing Tour: Tina at the front desk recommends this tour to our guests. It’s a great way to get an overview of all DC has to offer. Your ticket is good for two days. Spend the first day seeing all of DC, then the second day go back to the part that interests you most.
Einstein Statue: Pam loves this 12 foot high statue of Albert Einstein. What other monument can you sit and climb on? It is slightly off the beaten path, but just a short walk from the Lincoln Memorial. Grab a snack and a drink from the food cart parked nearby and relax in the shade.
Library of Congress: Jeffrey’s favorite in DC is the Library of Congress. He says “With over 10 million items to view, I can never get enough!”. You can also stop by the US Capitol Visitors Center which is right nearby.
