The Top three things you need to do on while in Washington DC
1. Shopping in the city- you haven't shopped until you have visited the Eastern Market.  it is located a few blocks from the U.S Capitol.  it was originally built in the year 1873, it continued to operate until 2007 when all operations were halted because of a disastrous fire, and the structure was reopened in 2009.  it is opened everyday; however it attracts more shoppers and sellers alike on weekends.  keep in mind it is very busy on weekends, so be sure to make your visit early.

Capitol- this is among one of the most beautiful pieces of architecture within the United States of America.  it serves as home to the senate and house representatives.  this is where our laws are debated and voted upon.  the tour is free and you should get your tickets early since they are limited.
3. Tour the White House- its an opportunity of a lifetime to actually see where the president and his family lives.  you should note that these tours should be scheduled with a member of congress in advance of your trip.
