I'm visiting Washington DC for the first time and have about 36 hours. I want to make sure I see the major attractions such as the White House and other political historical sites and museums.
Are there any attractions I should prioritize to make sure I get in? Are there any I can (if possible) book in advance?
In other words, I don't wan't to miss something because I didn't get there early enough or didn't reserve (where possible).
To be clear, my question is to make sure I don't miss any attractions due to the tickets selling out. My priorities of what I would like to see are as follows:
- The White House
- United States Capitol and Capitol Hill
- The Smithsonian
