Washington, DC is one of the few places in the USA that doesn’t seem to sleep! In Washington, there is so much to see and do at almost any time of the day. If you’re a nocturnal animal or just want to make the most of the hours you’re spending in Washington, DC, you’re in luck, there’s plenty for you to see and do.
Of course, we need to mention the many monuments and statues in our nation’s capital. They’re truly breathtaking to see, and kept by the local authorities, so their upkeep is always in good order. They’re even lit up at night and make a more striking impression than during the day! You can see the Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson Memorial, and of course the Washington Monument and Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial. Washington, DC being the capital also means you can check out the White House which is always quite an impressive sight by night.
There’s plenty more to see and most of it is steeped in history. There are iconic historical streets that have previously acted as suburbs for different cultures within the city, and taking a bus tour or other guided tour can be an amazing way to make sure you see it all and don’t miss anything. If you can do this in the evening all the better, as public transport and walking may get more challenging. Ensuring you take in all that DC has to offer is a must when you’re visiting one of the most iconic cities in America at night.
