With its array of world-famous landmarks, Washington DC is a dream destination for history buffs and politics junkies. But the city's also home to vibrant neighborhoods, an adventurous restaurant scene, and highbrow museums. A 2-day stay gives you the chance to see both sides of the city—here’s what you shouldn’t miss.

Day 1: Morning

From the Lincoln Memorial to the White House, Washington DC offers an incredible range of sightseeing musts. Cover as possible in a limited amount of time on a Segway or bike tour of the city.

Day 1: Afternoon

Spend a few hours exploring DC’s world-class museums. The Smithsonian comprises more than a dozen different institutions, so you can admire rockets and planes in the National Air and Space Museum, take in famous canvases at the National Portrait Gallery, and more. Book guided tours to learn more about key collection highlights.

Day 1: Night

Round out your day of sightseeing with a stint aboard a hop-on hop-off bus. Settle into a comfortable perch, cue up your audio guide, and spend several hours coasting by the city’s top stops. An evening tour lets you enjoy special views of the monuments and memorials lit up after dark.

Day 2: Morning

Use your second day in DC to follow in locals’ footsteps, and visit the city’s lively and characterful neighborhoods. Begin with a walking tour of Georgetown, home to the eponymous university, and also renowned for its historical architecture and bustling shopping streets.

Day 2: Afternoon

Continue your neighborhood tour with a visit to Dupont Circle. With its embassies, art galleries, and bookstores, this thriving neighborhood is a major DC hub. Walking tours focused on architecture, food, and culture introduce you to different sides of this dynamic area.

Day 2: Night

Politics aside, the nation’s capital also hosts an impressive and wide-ranging culinary scene. Wrap up your second day in town with a delicious food tour. Stick around Dupont Circle to explore its many eateries, head to vibrant 14th Street for a trendy dining excursion, or embark on a cocktail-themed walking tour for a decadent end to your trip.
