While you’re touring “The District” be sure to stop at some of these great places for a bit of local flavor and a whole lot of fun.
- The National Mall. Park your Washington, D.C. car rental down by Congress and walk the length of The Mall. It’s not only stunning, but along the way you can say hello to Mr. Lincoln, pay your respects at the Vietnam Memorial, pop into an array of Smithsonian institutions and discover many of this country’s incredible national treasures.
- Ben’s Chili Bowl. It hasn’t been designated a national treasure yet, but this little restaurant on U Street has been serving up chili dogs, fries, half-smokes and more to celebrities and politicians since 1958. President Barack Obama, Bill Cosby, Duke Ellington, Miles Davis and Nat King Cole have all noshed on Ben’s fine wares… and it’s well worth the trip.
- Maryland. It’s just a short drive from D.C. to Maryland, so hop into one of our Washington, D.C. car rentals and take to the road. Here you can enjoy the thrill of Six Flags America, take a sightseeing cruise in Annapolis, wander historic Ellicot City or just enjoy some legendary Maryland crab cakes.
- Virginia. From Arlington National Cemetery to George Washington’s Mount Vernon Estate and Great Falls Park, a day trip to Virginia is well worth the price of a Washington, D.C. car rental.
If you have time to spare, you may consider spending several days in Washington, D.C, then a few days in both Virginia and Maryland. All of these amazing locations offer so much to see and do. And because Thrifty’s Washington, D.C. rental cars are so reasonably priced, you can afford to keep it a few extra days.
