Editor Rating: 8-Washington DC is a large city on the east coast, which means that it isn’t cheap. If you want to see the sites that the city is famous for, it’s going to cost you. You can exert some cost cutting measures while you’re there, but plan on spending as much as you would in most large America cities not named New York or LA.
Indie Travel Scale
Editor Rating: 6- DC is riddled with super touristy sites like the White House and Washington Monument, but it also has plenty of treasures that most tourists don’t bother seeing. If you try hard enough, you can have a truly indie travel experience in Washington DC.
