When I say worth it, I mean worth the time. Not the money. Because they’re free. That’s one of the things that make them pull in more and more tourists. But if you’re time crunched and stressing out about what you can fit in, don’t try and do everything! Just don’t do the Smithsonian Museums!
They may have some awesome stuff! They’re great to visit, especially for kids. But not nearly as great as other things, like the national galleries or the white house. But they bored me. They wasted the one day I had in Washington DC. Sorry if I’m being harsh, but it’s true!
