We happened to be in Washington, D.C. during two days of near-record temperatures. We did not care after having one of the longest winters in the Midwest. We chose the upper deck of the tour bus and loved every minute of it. Washington is so much more than the National Mall area. The tour took us to Georgetown, The National Cathedral, DuPont Circle, Arlington Cemetery, and all of the national monuments. It was such a convenient way to see the city. We did not take advantage of the hop-on/hop-off feature of the trip because we did not want to miss anything and only had two days. We did see areas in which we would like to spend more time on our next visit. The tour is a “must-do” for Washington visitors.
