Washington, DC 3 nights
Day 1 Washington, DC: On arrival in Washington, DC make your way to your hotel. If time allows and if visiting in the summer, perhaps step out and soak up some city vibes as you enjoy a drink or meal at one of D.C.’s rooftop bars and restaurants.
Day 2 Washington, D.C.: There’s an astounding number of things to see and do in the capital city and to help you see as much as you possibly can, we’ve included a 48 hour hop-on-hop-off sightseeing pass. With over 40 stops available, you’ll find no shortage of places to get off the bus and explore as you wish. Notable sights in the city include the Capitol Building, the Lincoln Memorial, the White House, the Thomas Jefferson Memorial, FDR Memorial and the Martin Luther King Jr Memorial to name but a few. This evening, perhaps head to The Wharf, an entertainment district set along the Potomac waterfront with lots of eating, drinking and shopping options.
Day 3 Washington, D.C.: You’re free to explore at leisure during the day, so be sure to have your hop-on-hop-off ticket to hand. Take a stroll along the National Mall which stretches for two miles from the Capitol steps to the Lincoln Memorial or perhaps check out the shops around Georgetown. Alternatively, you may like to visit one of the incredible world-class museums at the Smithsonian - the National Air & Space Museum or the National Museum of Natural History are particularly recommended. This evening, enjoy a truly illuminating ride aboard an old-fashioned trolley to view the city’s most iconic monuments and memorials as they are lit up at night.
Day 4 Washington, D.C.: Further free time at leisure. Perhaps head out to Alexandria to tour the former home of George Washington, Mount Vernon. Alternatively, cram in another museum or some shopping before you transfer to the airport for your onward journey. Alternatively, why not extend your stay and visit another east coast city?
