    Best time to visit: April - May. The cherry blossoms, people. Expect peak blooms in early spring. (You will, however, have to contend with crowds--so time your museum visits for early in the morning.) Read more

    Traffic is a nightmare so walk when you can. Sights, sounds & food for every taste and pocketbook. While sites are spreadout, it's a walkable adventure & say HI to the President. In one word-Majestic

    The city has this 'European feeling',very much like Paris/France. The White House looks smaller then in the movies/tv news.The never ending closing street when president is on the move can be annoying

    If you're going to walk your fat ass like molasses, MOVE to the right so people can walk through! Or better yet, walk your ass on the street! It has more room.
