Can easily see all of these within your allocated time, that too at a leisurely pace, just walking :-)

Enjoy the various fountains along the way, so soothing & refreshing for the senses.

Plus, you could squeeze in a few museums too - so many to choose from!!

Two days is enough to do what you have listed but there's so many more great places to visit I'm sure you'll wish you'd given yourself more time once you arrive so why not plan for at least one more day if at all possible.

Re: Two days in the Capital

I would park some ware out of DC and take the metro in.

I think 2 days should be plenty for what you want to see but I understand you need to pre arrange a pass to see the White House and maybe the Pentagon. Someone told me that it takes 6 months to get a pass for the White House. Maybe for security checks? This is second hand information so I would search the internet or maybe someone will have the info as a reply to your post.

Yes, you must pre-book your tour of the Pentagon in advance, and they don't offer tours on the weekend. See this link for info requiring how to book, security guidelines and special reservation process for non-nationals (on the off chance you're not a US citizen).

And yes, tours of White House require reservations 6 months out.

I read that the Lincoln memorial is stunning when lit up at night - as are some of the other surrounding monuments and buildings. That said, if you end up having to do White House and Pentagon as walk-bys and can see a few other sites in the evening, you'd probably have time to even fit a couple other places in.

Travel Tips for Washington D.C.

Washington a very unusual city

by Toja

although the city is relatively young and modern, the history is omnipresent, which is great. Besides, it feels a bit like being in London, however not even half as 'homy' as there :) getting lost in the huge parking lot around the Pentagon

Early Bird catches the worm

by traveler4224

If you want to go to see the Capitol Building or the Washington Monument, you have to get tickets either by calling in advance, which is what we should have done...(if you can do it now)...or get up really early. We got to the Capitol Building at about 6:30, and we were second or third in line for tickets. If you dont go that early, you probably wont get tickets for that day. Same for the Washington Monument. If I did it again, I would definetly check to see if I can order tickets ahead of time.

The US capitol should be one...

by CubsIn4

The US capitol should be one of your first stops. You may decide not to stand in line for a tour, but at the very least walk around on the grounds and take in the place. After all, important issues that affect every American are discussed here on a daily basis (and once in awhile, decisions are even made!) I enjoyed my visit to the National Cathedral more than anything else. The building is huge and absolutely beautiful. Done completely on private donations, the building continues to be a work in progress. They are always adding something new and have no plans to stop.

If you're in the US on July...

by azucca

If you're in the US on July 4th, Washington DC is the place to be. We spent Independence Day in the MAll and was my second time and I just loved it even more. It's a good time to socialize and make pic-nic. Get there early though.

Seeing Washington D.C. at night

by gosiaPL

Another type of Old Town Trolley tours is the night tour. It takes 2.5 hours to introduce you to D.C.'s main sites and memorials by moonlight. We had a few short stops and then two stops that lasted long enough for us to explore the Roosevelt Memorial and the WWII Memorial.
I did this tour on my first evening, and the next morning I went on the get-on-and-off-board tour picking the places I really wanted to see. The night tour is really great, you can see how amazing some of the memorials and buildings look - almost as if they were on fire! Some of the sites looked as if they were out of this world. Imagine the Washington Monument as if an obelisk of light mirrored in the Reflecting Pool in front of Lincoln Memorial.
What I also liked on this tour was the stories and anecdotes told by the trolley driver :-)
