This app allows you to learn more about DC as a local or a visitor. It's organized in sections of interest and provides relevant information for the trip. Well, I have more exploring to do, so…
This was really helpful on our trip to DC. It gives suggestions, hours, cost, and location. You can mark favorites and use the map to plan your day.
This is a must have app when touring DC!
I downloaded a bunch of DC apps before our trip, and all others paled in comparison. Thus one had every feature we could have wanted and very quick and easy to use.
All the tools are here for touring around DC. Get information about attractions. Pin down the favorites. Show them on map. Plan navigation. ...
But I am deleting, please allow customers to pay to get rid of ads.
My daughter and the grand kiddos are planning a visit to DC and I emailed this app so she could go over the options with them on her iPad. Lots of useful information including links to various websites if you want more info. Great layout and very easy to use. If you are planning a trip to DC you should have this.
Good details. But I found orienting myself a bit tricky. There should be an "orient compass" button to recalibrate. If your compass is off a bit you are lost. Second, the directions should actually work. They do not. Third , how about a restaurant option in addition to fast food selections ? Other than these items the app has a lot of potential. Keep improving it !!!
Great app, easy to navigate and very useful info.
I just moved here and found out about all the great things there is to do just by this app!
This app is amazing. Get it.
Using this app to help my son and I during our busy DC trip and I live it!
Aplicación excelente para visitar Wadhigton DC. Recomendada para familias con hijos de cualquier edad
It's 5*. All info right on the money. I wish the directions worked, though.
This app is very useful. We had one day in the city and this made it very easy to plan where to go. Let's you know how far you are from a point of interest.
Works perfect to plan. Awesome!!
Very helpful! The only thing I would like to see added would be a "food" tab.
Was very helpfully I enjoyed walking & biking on all monuments park, I'm really recommend this app.
Uninstalled , installed, restarted. Still crashes on startup.

I purchased this app based on the rave reviews, only it crashes every time I attempt to open. Developers, please issue update to fix this, we leave for dc in a few weeks!!
Was excited to find an app to research a family vacation in DC. App won't load and no support available. Boo Washington Post for putting your name on this app. Don't waste your money purchasing this app.
Nice tourism app but if I'm paying $1.99 I shouldn't have ads scrolling at the bottom!
Deleted this app when I saw there are lame animated ads on every page. Dishonest screenshots all have the ads photoshopped out. :(
A must for DC travelers.
Great interface with map
Not my first time to DC, but this app was still helpful!! I loved the kids and family section for each place. Very helpful tips!!
Great app with lots of useful tools. The information and location functions are really useful. Download it- you won't be disappointed!
Very helpful and easy to use. Good organization and fun user interface.
The app is very easy to use while traveling.
This app was wonderful for first time visitors! It gives so many suggestions for memorials and events around the area. Also the pricing for different places. The link directly to websites was cool too! Thanks for this app!!!!
Fun facts and informative. Love the part that lets you know if near a metro station.
In DC with two kids as I write this. The app has been really helpful in making new plans on the fly (as kids get sore feet!).
First time in DC without a local and this app made my stay fully informed on how and where to get around.
Fantastic guide to organizing your trip and knowing where to go and when. It is updated frequently with new events to visit.
Had the best concise info on all the sites in DC as well as a direct link to the website for more details. Highly recommend!
Love this app. Very reliable and let's you mark favorites to go back to later.
I loaded this app prior to a family trip and it is so informative. There is so much info imbedded on the sites and and around the city. It's great for the whole family. I haven't used it on location yet but the mapping is working fine.
Helps alert you to attractions, organize your stay. The directions were clear.
It is completely awesome and reliable! So much information to tell you what you're looking at!
This app is a must have!! It was my go to tool for all of my excursions in and around D.C.! The best part was that after you select where you want to go it will give you metro directions! This app saved me tons of time because I didn't have to wander around and hunt for places. Excellent!!!!
I recently relocated from Atlanta GA and this app is definitely an awesome tool in helping me plan activities for myself and my six year old daughter. We have lots to see and do thanks to this wonderful app.
We constantly used this app to navigate our days in DC! The designers thought of everything. It's still a city where we had a hard time finding a good place to eat though.
Awesome app when visiting for the first time. Great directions!
Well written with personality and a sense of humor but also user friendly, this app helps simplify the overwhelming to-do list of Washington, D.C. I read many of the entries out loud to my family during the car ride. The location interface is seamless, and each entry is full of helpful links such as websites and phone numbers. Nice job!
Great app! Concise!! Cuts to the chase with necessary info.
Best travel app for DC by far. Good work by The Washington Post.
