Hey I’m Savanna from Swift-n-Savvy travel blog showing you all the free things D.C. has to offer! (Most were done pre-covid, so plan accordingly)
All the the Smithsonian museums are free! There are 22 museums they offer (including the National Zoo). Check out my Smithsonian Museum guide!

Ford’s Theater and The Petersen House! See the historic theater and the house where Lincoln passed away. There’s a Musuem under the theater as well.

Visit your state senators and get tickets to see inside the House and Senate Galleries!

Pay your respects at Arlington Cemetery. This requires a short Metro ride, but entrance is free.
