Information on Touring Washington D.C.
Our nation's capital provides visitors with the unique opportunity to witness firsthand the workings of our government, to visit first-rate museums and historical monuments, and to enjoy unique cultural experiences.
My office is happy to help arrange congressional tours of certain sites for constituents of the Sixth District who visit Washington, D.C. (please click determine if you live in the Sixth Congressional District).
When planning your trip, please keep in mind that tours of many federal buildings are in high demand and often reach capacity several months in advance, especially during the summer. As such, it is best to make your arrangements two to six months prior to your trip.
To help you plan your trip and learn more about area attractions, please click HERE to see a review of the monuments as created by fourth grade students from Wood End Elementary in Reading.
