Washington D.C. Warnings and Dangers: 142 reviews and 131 photos

by Dabs

As I browsed through the web looking for some ideas on what to go see in my 4 days in the capitol, I found many things that show up in the guide books are closed due to a variety of reasons including

Treasury tour (closed indefinitely, probably a result of 9/11)

FBI tour and Washington monument (closed temporarily due to renovation)

White House-used to be able to get tickets while in Washington DC, now needs to be reserved in advance for groups of 10+

Old Executive Office Building-website said tours were available but when I called to book they said they weren't currently giving any

So check it out in advance on their website or call ahead!

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
