Capital Segway City Tour, Washington DC…best way to see any big city

Segway tours are the best way to see any big city. It’s a wonderful feeling – zipping around in the crisp air and the front row seat to the city with tour guides and you don’t have to deal with parking, buses or throngs of tourists. Plus it’s fun!!

The tour stops at all of the highlights you will want to see. As far as the Capitol & the White House. Be advised that you don’t get to go in anything on this tour only learn about the area and see everything from the exterior. There is one stop on the tour where we were able to get off the Segway – at the Abraham Lincoln Memorial.

Having been on many Segway tours, I can knowledgeably say that the difference between one Segway tour to another is the quality of the tour guide. A funny, witty, informative and animated one who gives fun facts along the way would make the tour worth every cent you’ve paid. Our guide was not the best, but he was not the worst either.

Do it! This is the true truth as I say it as it is…

Old Ebbitt Grill, Washington DC…absolutely on the money

 I can’t put into words how much I love this place. The atmosphere is awesome. The service is impeccable. Just across the street from the Treasury and around the corner from the White House, the place was packed when I got there at 6.30pm, but the hostesses handled everything with aplomb. My wait was less than 15 minutes.

The restaurant is a sprawling, wood-paneled, old-fashioned type of joint.  It just oozes with charm.

The star attraction is that one word. Oysters. I had the fried oyster stew. It was spectacular. Your best bet is the Jumbo lump crab cake dinner.  Served with roasted potato wedges, sugar snap peas and lemon aioli, I distinctly remember the remoulade sauce with the crab cakes was delicious. 

This place  (filmed in the movie, “In the Line of Fire”)  FILLS UP …but it’s easy to see why. But don’t let a packed lobby deter you from walking in and seeing if there’s a table. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…
