I don't think I saved anything by going with Orbitz. I think I would have been better served by ordering everything direct. If things don't change at Orbitz I will not use you again.

Start your trip at the US Capitol Visitor Center. This is where you pick up your tour passes for a guided walk through the Capitol Building. You may request a tour of the White House in advance of your trip, but no advance arrangements are needed to enjoy the National Mall. This is an outdoor park surrounding the White House that is often referred to as America's Front Yard. Additional highlights of your trip may include the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial and Vietnam Veterans Memorial. You may even have some fun at the International Spy Museum.

Hints and tips

Once you arrive at the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA), it's best to take the subway or reserve space on a shuttle. You can rent a car, but the subway system is well developed and is preferred by many guests. Pack light for day trips because large bags aren't permitted in the Capitol Building. If you're over the age of 18, you will need identification to enter the White House for a scheduled tour.
