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 husband and I had never been to this theatre before, but we really enjoyed it. We had tickets for the Simon Sinek tour; the seats were comfortable, acoustics were great, and bathrooms were clean. It is a lovely little theatre.

Sat in approximate middle of theatre. Horrible acoustics. Not sure if it's the venue or the sound engineer trying to crank the amps to their max

The venue was intimate and the sound quality was great. Joe Jackson performed for more than two hours mixing old hits with his new album. Not a bad seat in the Lincoln Theater. We will definitely be back!!

DC has a number of venues like the Lincoln Theatre that are prime spots for seeing live music. Historic theatre space renovated (not sure how long ago) and modernized in all the right ways. Seating maxes out at 1225 people, so big crowds are never an issue when seeing a show here (other than shows getting sold out easily). It's a big enough room, and grand enough in its appointments to give you the "Theater" experience, but small enough to keep a more intimate experience with the performers than so many of the larger venues. It's convenient to Metro (which we prefer when going downtown), so I can't offer much info on available parking. There are also many many food options all within walking distance, adding to the appeal of this location for us.
