Here is a few more tips from the community. Other travelers share their best tips on backpacking Washington, DC:
The monuments are beautiful at night! Also, during the summer, check out the internationally focused fairs by the National Art Museum/on the National Mall. There was one for Israel and one for the Philippines while I was there and they had concerts and delicious, authentic cuisine! There are jazz nights on the National Archives too -- all free -- and the sangria you can buy there is delicious.
If you are looking for a cheap vacation, this is it! All the museums, monuments, and a great zoo -- totally free. You can find cheap good eats everywhere and for the cost of a day pass on the Metro or a great pair of walking shoes you can get everywhere!
I think it's awesome. I liked it.
