Washington, D.C. on a Budget: How to Spend Your Saturday and Save


Here at Bill Page Honda, we’re lucky to call Falls Church our home. This community is a wonderful place to live and to raise a family, and it’s only a 30-minute drive to Washington, D.C. That means you can easily take a trip to our nation’s capital for the day — but what if you’re on a budget? Here are some ways you can enjoy Washington, D.C. on a budget.
 

Check Out the Library of Congress


See the Declaration of Independence, the Gettysburg Address, and a Gutenberg Bible all in one place — the Library of Congress. This building is filled to the brim with historical treasures and is home to 33 million books. It sometimes hosts free classical music concerts throughout the year, and the Library itself is free to visit; it even has free one-hour walking tours throughout the day.
 

Tour the U.S. Capitol


One of the most recognizable symbols of democracy in the world is the U.S. Capitol building. This monument is not only iconic, it’s also a working office building and offers free tours every day but Sunday. You can see Congress in session and learn more about this building’s role in the U.S. government.
 

Do a Museum Crawl


Rather than heading out on the town and spending money, take advantage of the fact that all Smithsonian museums are free and you can explore them all at the National Mall. Discover interesting and new facts about history, art, nature, space, and more. They tend to have demonstrations at certain times, too, so research the available programs before you head out.
 

See the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier


On top of a hill overlooking Washington, D.C. in Arlington National Cemetery lies the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. This tomb acts as a monument dedicated to U.S. soldiers whose remains haven’t been identified. It’s guarded by soldiers from the 3rd Infantry Regiment, who change the guard every half hour when the cemetery is open to the public.
 
It’s easier than you might think to experience a budget-friendly trip to Washington, D.C. From museums to tours of government buildings, there’s plenty to do in this historic city.
