4. Don't Be Rude on the Metro

The Metro, D.C.'s extensive and efficient subway, is one of the best ways for tourists to get around the city. However, locals also rely on it for their daily commutes, so there's little patience for rudeness or delays. Have your Metro card ready whenever you enter or exit the train, so you don't cause a delay by searching for it, and avoid blocking the doors if it isn't your stop. Never eat on the Metro, which is seen as a major faux pas.
