Sightseeing on a Budget in Washington DC - page 2

Sightseeing on a Budget in Washington DC

With free admission to the city’s national museums and monuments, Washington DC is an affordable place to soak up some culture. That said, it’s still easy to overspend on transport, tours, and dining. Here are a few ways to see more while spending less.

Take a Tour that Includes Transportation

There’s so much to see in Washington DC that you don’t want to waste time walking from one place to the next or navigating public transport. Instead, book a hop-on hop-off bus or trolley tour that takes you to all the top sights. Or, join a Segway or bike tour to learn about the history of top sights.

Book a Combo Tour

One of the best ways to see Washington DC is on a bus tour. To see the city from two perspectives, book a tour that combines a bus trip with a Potomac River cruise. That way, you get a discounted price for both excursions.

Choose a Tour that Includes Lunch or Tastings

In DC’s historic waterfront restaurants,, food and drinks can get expensive. Instead, take a food tour that includes enough tastings to fill you up, and let you get the inside scoop on local culture. Additionally, you can book a brunch or sunset cruise along the Potomac River and see the sights while indulging in an all-you-can-eat meal.  

Buy an Attractions Pass

Sightseeing passes such as the Washington DC Explorer Pass are a cost-effective way to enjoy popular attractions and activities such as Mount Vernon, a riverboat cruise, and a hop-on hop-off bus tour. By bundling the attractions together, you can see more without worrying about the price of each individual attraction.
