DC Ghost Tour

83 reviews
Take a ghost tour of Washington DC that for an offbeat experience of the nation's capital in the evening. Your guide provides historical commentary and supernatural stories as you stop outside the Treasury Annex, Lafayette Square, the White House, and five additional locations. Learn some United States history during the tour, and get to see several famous monuments illuminated at night.

The architecture of this building is breath taking. Photos that wee see of the building in D.C. do not do justice. Must See. You can also request a tour to see the inside once the open back up (COVID).

We walked around U.S Capitol often since it is near Washington Court Hotel. The building is beautiful day or night, it gets really packed during day time we could hardly take a solo picture.

Whether or not you are pleased with Congress at any given time you should be pleased with the beauty of the US Capitol. You can also tour the Capitol inside as well.

Without doubt this building is spectacular. Unfortunately there was some construction work/renovations happening, but this was only in one section which left plenty of other sections to admire. The building dominates the area and is a brilliant piece of architecture.
