Day 2, 3

Washington, DC

Perhaps the most charismatic city on the eastern seaboard, Washington, DC is an incredibly pretty city, bustling with fabulous restaurants and bars and too many attractions to name. Whilst in downtown, make sure you visit the Jefferson and Lincoln Memorials, Smithsonians many museums, the Capitol Building and, of course the White House. Their close locations along The Mall and Pennsylvania Avenue mean that they are best visited on foot, on a biking tour, or even a Segway tour. There are also two great museums which are a must; Newseum, which is filled with media paraphernalia and the days front covers from around the world, and The Spy Museum which provides an insight into the world of espionage throughout the generations.
