“Great tourist city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2006

DC is clean, transportation is easy via the metro. Seeing all the monuments is amazing.

DC is a very flat sprawled city with lots of green space and outdoor things to do.

Rent a bike and bike around the nations capital, kayak on the potomac river. Play flag football on the mall.

Don't try to park downtown, do see all the monuments and museums.


Hit Georgetown or Adams morgan for nightlife. See the National Arboretum - the azealas in the spring are gorgeous.

“Great Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2006

Went to D.C. with my boyfriend. He's 27 y.o. and I'm 25 y.o. It was a great time to just see all the historical stuff as well as the young nightlife. The metro is awesome to use if you are tourist. Great inexpensive weekend vaca. Most attractions are FREE!

We have just returned from a week at Washington D.C. The place is magnificent and we have never experienced such incredible happy time before.

“Nice place to visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2005

I visited Washington D.C., during the winter therefore did not get a chance to interface with a lot of true natives of Washington. I did interact with other visitors who were friendly -- those Washington Natives I did meet were mostly restaurants staff, sales staff and some clubs goers -- all were helpful and friendly. I did find it strange that the young man at the movie theatre did not know what a frank was --- as he only knew the word "hot dog" -- that was funny to me.
