    Our tips for Washington DC
    • Get tipping. Tipping in America is customary and is usually 15-20% of your bill for bar or wait-staff.
    • Visit the markets. Each weekend travellers and locals head to DC’s markets to get their paws on some local art, crafts, fashion and food. Open every Sunday, the flea market at the Eastern Market is a local favourite, and is well worth a visit.
    • Touring the White House calls for careful planning. Book your visit to the nation’s most famous residence at least 21 days in advance to avoid missing out.
    • Think before you drink. The legal drinking age in the US is 21 and over.
