For the veterans and locals, we're positive you'll learn new facts and stories about Washington that you've never heard. And we're sure you'll both agree that riding a Segway is the best way to see the 'Capital City'.
1) White House
Possibly the most photographed building in the world and the greatest symbol of power. Every president except George Washington has lived in this Executive Mansion.
2) United States Capitol
The government moved to "Jenkins' Hill" in 1800 and the building has been in constant development since. The only public building in the city where they don't know the exact cornerstone.

The tragic site of our 16th President's assassination. Learn about John Wilkes Booth's plot, the conspiracy surrounding the fateful night, and the 12-day manhunt that ensued.
4) Washington Monument
The pinnacle structure dedicated to the founder of our country, George Washington. The centerpiece of the National Mall.
5) Supreme Court
The highest court in the land, there is always something worth seeing going on in front of the Supreme Court Building. Did you know there is a basketball court on the top floor?
6) National Archives
A beautiful building designed by John Russell Pope, the National Archives Building is home to the U.S. Constitution, Declaration of Independence, and the Bill of Rights. See for yourself just how large John Hancock's signature really is.
7) Smithsonian Castle
Established by British scientist, James Smithson, who sent his fortune in 100 bags of gold for "the increase and diffusion of knowledge". Serving as the first endowment of the Smithsonian Institution which has grown to 15 buildings and complexes.
8) Smithsonian Air & Space Museum
In only three decades this the most visited museum in the world. Learn why the Smithsonian Institute had to build another museum 40 miles away. The museum on the Mall houses the largest collection of historic air and spacecraft in the world!
9) National Galleries of Art

10) Smithsonian Natural History
The second most visited museum in the country. Hear the mystique behind the Hope Diamond, see the Hall of Mammals, explore the fossil lab, and see the two ton stuffed African elephant.
11) Smithsonian American History Museum
How could they call a museum "America's Attic"? This museum collects anything possible, but got its start with the original flag for the United States and the story behind it.
See the Spy Museum, FBI Headquarters, Old Executive Building and more!
Your safety is always our highest priority, therefore each of our tours begins with a 30-minute orientation session. We will practice on the Segways until everyone feels comfortable and is ready to conquer DC. The Segway is appropriate for virtually anyone 16 and older that weighs 100 pounds or more. Anyone suspected of being under the influence of alcohol will not be permitted to ride. Unfortunately, pregnant women will not be permitted to participate. Children under 16 are welcome to participate on the tour by bicycle. Got questions? Email us at DC@CitySegwayTours.com.
For the DAY TOUR, the Metro will be your best option. If parking is imperative, the Parking Garage will be your best option as parking on the street is only good for 1 hour or 2 hours at a time and this is strictly enforced. If you want to use a parking garage in this area, they typically charge $7 - $9 per hour.
Please be aware that many garages in DC are not open very late, so be sure to double check before you enter or leave the garage for operating hours. Always check for temporary parking signs; due to federal security restrictions, street closures are very common in the Central Business District.
