Washington, D.C City Tour
It seems to many that car tours are somehow worse than walking or bus tours. But that's not the case at all. At least we know exactly how to explore the city by car, so that the impressions will make you smile for a long time.
Benefits of an auto-tour
First, we note in which cases it is better to immediately choose excursions by transport.
- long distances
America is huge, and if you are planning to explore more than two neighboring streets, then without a car you will be nowhere. The infrastructure here is fully adapted for cars, that is, the distance between stops can be simply gigantic. Local residents often do not even go to the store on foot, to say nothing of sightseeing walks.
- Limited time
You can spread the tour for a whole day, or even two, and get tired of the city to death. But why, when there is a car? Even if you have limited time, for example, in Washington you have a transfer at the airport or the travel schedule is quite dynamic, you can get to know the city and see all the most important and interesting things. The US capital has excellent transport infrastructure, so it will take you about 3-4 hours to complete everything.
- Concerns about safety and comfort
Washington is definitely a safe city. But still there is an important point - it has a huge number of political and public activists. That is, no one guarantees that during your walk there will be no pickets, rallies, performances and detentions with the police. For Washington, this is in the order of things, but from the outside it can look intimidating. Yes, and being blocked by a crowd of onlookers is also a so-so pleasure.
- Fear of missing out
The USA is a country of cars, so driving here is especially pleasant and interesting. Even if you are served by a professional driver, the road will bring much more impressions, and at the same time help you learn more about the city and country.
What can be seen on the car?
Practically anything. American Butler specialists, as a rule, build excursion routes depending on the number of tourists, their interests, time and budget. But there are also invariably popular points of sightseeing tours by car.
The main building of Washington and partly, perhaps, of the whole world. In addition to architectural beauty, the building surprises with hospitality. You can walk around and even along the inner gallery with great pleasure. Anyone can get to the place where America began.
- White House
It is always interesting to look at what is so often shown in the news from the other side of the world. In fact, this is the most ordinary house of the presidential family with its own everyday life and funny stories. And getting there is quite real, especially if you take care of it in advance.
The building of the US Department of Defense excites the whole world. Not only is his shape strange, but there are also a lot of legends around. In fact, you can get there, you only need a passport. But to confirm or destroy the legends, read a special article on our website.
- National Mall
The walking park area of the National Mall or Alley covers almost all the main attractions. It houses several monuments that we saw in the movies at once: an obelisk in front of a mirror pond, and the Lincoln Memorial with a giant statue of the president, and much more.
- Cathedral of the Apostles Peter and Paul
The most progressive, modern and beautiful neo-gothic cathedral in the city. In a word, a unique building with a unique idea inside. If you thought that religious buildings are always boring and monotonous, you have a direct path here. In this cathedral you can see Darth Vader, and Martin Luther King, and even astronaut Armstrong with his landing on the moon.
Of course, this is only a small selection of places where you can go on a sightseeing car tour. And in order not to spend several hours choosing a route, it is better to delegate it to professionals.
