If you are staying in Washington DC, there is a lot to see and do here, a lot of it. Thankfully, most of what you could possibly want to do in Washington DC is in a single area, or, within easy to reach distance. On this page, I am going to cover some of the best things you can do if you are in the city for just 96 hours.

1. Museums: There are 19 museums in Washington DC operated by the Smithsonian. If you love museums, then you are going to feel right at home, all of them are free to enter. Although, of course, each museum is going to take a good few hours to explore. You will, therefore, want to choose your favorites. Start at the Smithsonian Institute Building and pick up a guide to the museums and choose which ones you want.
