There are tons of FREE things to do....
You have to walk for miles to see them all
In a nutshell
Worth the visit but will take days to see it all!!
The restuarants in the musuems are outrageously priced!! Avoid these if you can! There are several Kiosks on the Mall if you want not quiet so expensive meals..but they are still overpriced!!
Unique Suggestions: The sandwiches served in the museums are large so...split one with your travel companion. These are usually too much for one person anyway!
Fun Alternatives: Or....Pack your own lunch and have a picnic on the mall. If you are staying close this is an easy alternative to expensive meals.

Luggage and bags: If you plan on traveling the Metro from the airport to your hotel pack light. The Metro is not as crowded as Londons' Tube but it can be at times.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: COMFORTABLE WALKING SHOES....I cannot stress this enough!! On a map it may not seem far from one monument to another but it is....I walked 15 miles in one day of touring. There are several places to stop and take a rest but you will do a lot of walking! A light waterproof jacket in spring and fall.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Not much need for sunblock unless you come in the middle of Summer. A small first aid kit isn't a bad idea for when out touring especially if you are walking (don't forget pain medication for the leg cramps and sore feet). Bring lots of bottled water.
Photo Equipment: Most of your shots will be distance shots as the monuments here are large. I suggest an extra flash for fill lighting as some of the interiors of the monuments tend to run a bit dim. A second memory card and battery is a must, also, would suggest a tripod to steady those long shots if you are using a large lens.
