Have a group looking to tour DC (or a family that’s large enough to count as a bonafide group)? See (and eat) DC on two wheels with this group-tailored 3 day itinerary! No group? No problem. This itinerary works just swell for singles too.
Start your trip off right and get the lay of the land with a bike or Segway tour! Not only do riders get to see DC’s monuments and memorials up close and personally, they also learn about the history, art, architecture and culture of the nation’s capital.
Afterwards, head to the Mall and stop by the National Museum of the American Indian for a unique (and amazing!) culinary experience. The Mitsitam Cafe gives visitors the opportunity to taste indigenous cuisines (buffalo, anyone?) of various Native tribes using fresh and seasonal ingredients.
Get your grub on before arriving at the Newseum where seven levels of news history awaits. With exhibits ranging from a 9/11 Gallery to “Pictures of the Year” to “Anchorman: The Exhibit,” this one-of-a-kind museum is sure to wow. In the evening, have dinner in Chinatown at Del Campo restaurant where diners are treated to South American cuisine that is “meat-driven, wine-centric.” Enough said!
Nothing like coffee and pop tarts to wake up to- especially when it’s gourmet coffee and homemade pop tarts at Ted’s Bulletin. This local hotspot does everyone’s favorite comfort food with a thoroughly modern twist.
After breakfast, head to the National Portrait Gallery to view their “American Cool” exhibit which includes a variety of celebrity portraits. Keeping in line with this citywide theme, you’ll ride around town in style on “DC Cool” bikes, available for rent at Bike and Roll’s Downtown DC location. Pedal down to the Southwest Waterfront to have lunch outside at the Wharf where you’ll find the oldest continuously operating fish market in the United States. Cruise around at a leisurely pace before returning the bikes and making your way to Old Ebbitt Grillfor dinner- Washington’s oldest and most historic, famed bar and restaurant.
Start your day in Alexandria, VA with Bike and Roll’s Mount Vernon by Bike and Boatpackage. Pick the bikes up early and take a spin across the river to National Harbor where you’ll see the brand new Capital Wheel– DC’s first and only observation wheel!
Head back down the Mount Vernon Trail, lock the bikes outside (we’ll pick them up!) and go on to tour our first President’s magnificent estate and gardens. After a full day of historical fun, hop on the Potomac Riverboat Company’s Miss Christin for a narrated boat cruise back to Old Town Alexandria. End this lovely day with dinner at Virtue Feed & Grain– and don’t forget to try their delicious Guacamame Hummus!
