      It's great for those who have been to DC before or a local and just want to get to know the city better since it gives the history portion, plus some fun tales as well. Surrounded by restaurants, the shop is a great spot for a post-dinner browse. Read ahead for our guide to where you can find cheap to mid-priced reads with great atmosphere and nick-nacks. Fun way to travel. My husband encouraged me to slow down for a moment to look at the view across the basin, and the photo I captured in that moment perfectly captures the essence of D. After purchasing books, try the pistachio or the salted caramel vanilla cheesecake.

      Note this is not a HOHO tour. Many neighborhoods are within walking distance of the mall, such as D. Bus frequency every 30 minutes.

Along the way, you can learn about the city's history by listening to the entertaining and informative commentary. We loved the sites, though we've seen them a time or two, but to have someone take us and tell us more than we knew was a great pleasure.

Not to mention, our guide was pretty cute! So settle in, relax and take in the amazing and historic sights DC is known for. All the Smithsonian museums are gratis, as are others on the Mall, including the National Gallery of Art and the National Archives, and most other public venues around town.
