Washington DC is a classic and popular destination for both Americans and foreign visitors, but things there operate in different ways than cities like New York or Los Angeles. On one hand, many of the top Washington DC attractions are free to enter, including most of the big monuments and the many museums that make up the Smithsonian. But on the other hand, those attractions tend to be a bit dry, especially for younger visitors.
The Go Washington DC Card should be a money and time saver for some visitors, but certainly not all. The hop-on, hop-off bus tour is an excellent way to see the city in a short time and decide on which things you want to see close up later on. If you are going on the bus tour then you already on your way to saving money with this card by seeing another attraction or two. If you add in the boating attraction and Spy Museum, you are not only saving money but saving time in ticket queues. Below we’ll take a closer look at this card and see who should consider it and who probably should not.
