5 Spots to Visit on the Circulator

Washington, DC has plenty of ways to get you around town. Most notably, there’s the famously spotless Metro, but there are also Ubers, cabs, and for those who drive themselves, parking isn’t too bad. One of the most fun, however, is the Circulator, which is a $1 bus that loops around the entire city hitting each of its stops around every ten minutes.
