Things Every D.C. Tourist Should Know
In today's Style section, Monica Hesse writes a letter to tourists with tips on navigating the city. Since there are so many visitors descending here these days, they probably need all the help they can get.
So let's play friendly tour guide: What other things are totally obvious to us locals but not to D.C. newbies? We'll throw out a few to get you started -- then you can add more in the comments.
There's no smoking in (almost every) D.C. bar and restaurant.
Don't eat or drink on the Metro. Seriously. You will be arrested.
There's no Metro in Georgetown.
That neighborhood with the big circle and fountain in the middle? It's pronounced DU-pont, not du-PONT.
If you're going to the zoo, get off at the Cleveland Park Metro stop. When you're leaving the zoo, walk down Connecticut to the Woodley Park station.
Not all the Smithsonian museums are on the Mall, and not everything on the Mall is part of the Smithsonian.
