America’s capital city is dotted with memorials, museums, and majestic monuments paying tribute to our nation’s past. It’s also a modern city of hip neighborhoods, a buzzing nightlife, and a palpable sense of power. Here are some ways to experience Washington DC like a local.
 
Highlights
  • Hop aboard a boat for a lunch cruise along the Potomac River, passing DC landmarks, such as the Washington Monument, Woodrow Wilson Bridge, and Admiral’s Row, along the way.
  • Pedal along the scenic Mount Vernon Trail from Old Town Alexandria to historic Mount Vernon on a self-guided bike tour.
  • Take your taste buds on a food tour through Little Ethiopia, home of the largest Ethiopian community outside Ethiopia.
  • Learn about DC’s vibrant African-American community and culture, including easy-to-miss street art and unmarked historic homes, during a walking tour of U Street.
  • Rent a kayak and take in the sights and sounds of the Capitol Riverfront from the Anacostia River.
  • Satisfy your sweet tooth on a pastry tour through Eastern Market in historic Capitol Hill, stomping grounds of historic figures and modern-day politicians.
