Things to do in Washington, DC

It’s easy to ride the Metro to explore all that the nation’s capital has to offer. Walk the halls of free Smithsonian museums, go ice skating on the National Mall or sit back on a double-decker tour bus and soak up some history then warm up by the open fire pits at The Wharf. Local shops, funky marketplaces and people-watching hot spots beckon by midday, as nighttime gives way to multi-course dinners and drinks from local breweries.
