Fodor's Travel: 10 Things NOT to Do in Washington, D.C.

From the historical monuments to where to eat, from museums and government tours, here are 10 things you should and shouldn’t do and see while you are visiting our nation’s capital.

Washington, D.C., is an easy, friendly place to visit. There are lots of amazing sites, a far-reaching Metro, walkable neighborhoods, and, really, something for everyone, whether you’re into art, U.S. history, science, food, outdoor recreation, cute pandas, or simply admiring the country’s greatest icons to democracy. But there are some things that you just don’t do. Try to cross the street when the President’s motorcade is coming, for one; you will learn what an angry, shouting Secret Service agent looks like—not the best fodder for great memories, to say the least. Here are 10 more things you definitely should not do, and when you are through with that, switch over to the things you have to see and do in D.C.. Need a place to stay while you’re in town?
