Washington, DC

This itinerary includes free Smithsonian, National Park, and government buildings only, but it is completely flexible. Just be sure to check museum and tour hours before you go. I recommend touring the monuments at night when they are lit up. Use the metro. It’s clean and easy to navigate. If you stay in the city, find lodging with a small kitchen. You may have difficulty finding good, reasonably priced restaurants, especially for breakfast.
