2. Don't Try to Do Too Much

It's tempting to try to cram as much as possible into each day, particularly in a place like Washington where most attractions are so close together. However, this may result in you missing out. Keep in mind that most museums and government-related sights close early, so you'll need to finish sightseeing by five or six o'clock in most cases. Check operating hours before you go, since they can vary.
