From New York City, the nation’s capital makes a captivating day trip. This well-organized one day trip takes advantage of every moment you spend in the nation’s capital. It starts with the drive south from New York City, passing through Delaware, New Jersey and Maryland before arriving at the U.S. capital.
Upon arriving in Washington DC, head straight for Capitol Hill, and see the Capitol along with the White House and other familiar sites. Include the iconic Lincoln Memorial, the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, and the Arlington National Cemetery on the Virginia side of the Potomac and you have a full day of wonder and discovery.
Before heading back to the Big Apple, better grab a bite to eat at one of the city’s many watering holes, like Clyde’s of Georgetown. Always busy, the place takes in busloads of tourists, yet it also attracts the locals. And with good reason. In addition to serving tavern staples, Clyde’s offers a few local and southern twists, like jumbo lump crab cakes, sliders and collard greens. Fine wines and craft-brewed beers complete your meal.
Washington DC is 3 hours and 30 minutes to JFK International Airport.
