Our 4 Fave Touristy (But Secretly Cool) Things To Do In D.C.

There's no doubt about it — we love our city, and so do the millions of other people who come to visit. And what's not to love? We have top-notch museums, gorgeous historic buildings, and enough sights packed into these few square miles to keep us entertained for, well, years. And since December tends to be a slow season for tourist traffic, we figure these next few weeks are an ideal time to revisit some of our favorite haunts. Sure, the idea of actually stopping at one of the attractions you commute past on a daily basis might seem a little odd, but we can guarantee these are worth a side trip.
