D.C. in Eight Hours
Have an eight-hour layover in DC? Eight hours is certainly not enough but let's maximize those hours. Your day begins with the monuments. After lunch, make a quick stop at Lafayette Square to see the White House, then catch the Metro to the Smithsonian museums or head to the Newseum or the Spy Museum or the Crime and Punishment Museum. Conclude your layover with dinner and a show in Penn Quarter/Chinatown.
