Washington Tours, Shopping and Attractions Guide

Monuments, memorials, and museums top any must-see list of D.C.  Here at Mondo Explorer, we’ll give you some of those, but we also try to take you off the beaten path to find experiences that are unique to the city. The sports fan and the art aficionado will find that this city has much to offer, so will the outdoorsy type and the history buff. Although not included in this list, the monuments on the National Mall, (Washington, World War II, and Lincoln) are a must-see for any first time visitor in D.C.
