As the Capitol of the United States, Washington DC overflows with history, grand monuments, and tourist from around the world. There is no such thing as off-season when it comes to DC tourism, although the crowds are not as dense if there is no major event happening. It’s best to schedule your time well to see the items highest on your personal list because there’s so much to see you can easily get side tracked.
6Use the metro
The District of Columbia (DC) and the city of Washington in particular, is very expensive. If you choose to drive, you’ll lose a lot of time sitting in traffic and finding a parking spot. If you opt for a public garage, you can pay upwards to $20 per day of sightseeing. The most economical mode of transportation is Washington’s subway/train system they call the metro. You can purchase a pass for a day or pay by the trip. Follow this link to the interactive metro map and plan out your day, buy tickets, or see liv e information on the status of the train.
