Washington DC is a huge, fascinating city with some of America’s most revered and best-loved sights. The Smithsonian, the White House, the Lincoln Memorial. All of these act as backdrops for some of the most iconic moments in American history, from Presidential inaugurations and speeches along the National Mall, to the Watergate Scandal and more.

There is a lot to take in when visiting Washington DC. The city is split across a couple of states, Maryland and Virginia, with the central DC area being independent administratively. That means you have to cross a river and state lines to visit Arlington National Cemetery or see the Pentagon for example. The best way to get to grips with it all is via a tour, and there are some great ones on offer to get the most out of a visit to Washington DC’s monuments.
