Avoid the stress of renting a car and navigating on your own on this bus tour of Washington DC. A guide provides entertaining historical context, as you pass more than 50 of the city’s iconic landmarks, including the White House, Capitol Building, Lincoln Memorial, and National Mall. Unlike most city bus tours, a small group size ensures you have the guide's full attention for questions and comments.

My wife grew up in the region and had often visited the Phillips Collection in a much smaller footprint, but they have expanded and my first visit amazed me as i did not have the Phillips on my 'hot list,' but it should have been. Don't miss this great collection tucked into a easily accessible neighborhood not far from DuPont Circle-you won't regret it.

Can't beat coming in here for free! Small, but some nice pieces. Tip: at the cafe, get the turkey/cranberry/brie sandwich. It was great, and made the whole visit worthwhile!

We didn’t want to leave DC without taking a quick look, about 1 hour, at this museum. Some great art in the collection! The house is also beautiful, especially the fireplaces in the upstairs rooms!

This gallery provided a beautiful setting for the exhibit of "Les Nabis." It also has quite a nice gift shop with helpful staff.

This 2 story private home expanded its space to add a larger 3 story exhibit area for its wonderful collection and visiting exhibitions some years ago. Is the tale apocryphal of a fellow from Germany bringing his girlfriend to DC to propose to her in front of Renoir's The Boating Party? It's believable, as the painting beguiles viewers. The current exhibition of Nabi artists: From Bonnard to Vuillard, will soon end, but there's always another worth seeing. I'm most intrigued by the Impressionist art, so well curated, but go to the website to see more of the permanent collection. If you can grab a ticket for a Sunday concert in the music room, by a wonderful traveling quartet, the acoustics in the main house are amazing. Just off Dupont Circle, this museum is special even in DC, where museums abound.
