- ByThrillistActually Cool Things to Do When Someone Visits DCAs the nation’s capital, DC is an infinitely popular spot for tourists from all over the world. And when one of those noobs lands on your doorstep, you’re inevitably faced with the daunting task of finding something to do that they’ll love and you won’t hate. Literally anything has to be better than getting dragged along on yet another Segway tour around the monuments. But before you start dreaming up ways to play hooky on your house guests (“I’m allergic to cherry blossoms” probably won’t fly), check this out. We’ve rounded up all the fun stuff around town that you won’t actually mind doing, including plenty of free activities as well as splurge-worthy spots. We skipped the one-off events and the infamous stand-in-line destinations, since that’s really no way to spend a trip. Otherwise, it’s all here, from brewery tours and must-hit restaurants, to legitimately cool museums and gorgeous parks. And don’t worry: We won’t make you ride a double-decker bus. https://www.thrillist.com/lifestyle/washington-dc/things-to-do-in-washington-dc20 items
