If you haven’t taken a Double Decker bus tour in a major city before, I highly recommend it. We bought a 48 hour pass to use a hop on/off tour with Big Bus tours. You ride on the top of the bus where you can get a good view and the buses stop at each of the major attractions to let people on and off. Buses run about every 20 minutes, so you generally do not have to wait very long for the next bus. We spent our last two days in D.C. utilizing this tour service to get around and to see some of the sites that are a bit “out of the way”.
The Capital Building
Statues of Generals are everywhere.
The Jefferson Memorial
Inside the Jefferson Memorial
FDR Memorial, full of waterfalls
Cherry Blossoms Everywhere
We asked Little Bird to stand like the statue of Martin Luther King, Jr. Art is open to interpretation right?
The White House from the South Lawn
Snack time is important.
Ford’s Theater, and not pictured is “Lincoln’s Waffles” across the street.
The National Cathedral. This is the one place I wish we’d hopped off the bus to see, but we were all too tired by the time we got there.
The National Zoo
The Original Georgetown Cupcakes, where TLC’s DC Cupcake is filmed.
And yes, this is how we ended each day.
