Farragut Square is the epicenter of corporate Washington DC, so don't be surprised to see lots of serious-looking people walking about. The square though, is filled with an upbeat ambiance where picnickers can enjoy the sounds of street musicians in summer. On Thursdays in the summer months, the square hosts free jazz at lunchtime. A statue of Civil War Admiral David Farragut stands in the middle of the square, spyglass in hand. Farragut coined the phrase “Full speed ahead!” during the 1864 Battle of Mobile Bay, Alabama.

City Segway Tours offers visitors a chance to explore the city in a whole new way. While walking can be tiring, zipping around on a Segway can be a fun experience. Each tour is operated and guided by professionals, who will first train you on using the Segway and then you'll start your tour. You'll get your own vehicle, as well as a safety helmet and head set, so you can hear your guide sans interruption. They offer a variety of tours, the most popular being the National Mall Segway Tour, where you'll find all the major monuments and sights like the White House, The Lincoln Memorial, The Capitol Building, Washington Monument as well as Smithsonian Castle. Other tours include the Segway Experience Tour and the Monuments and Memorials Tour as well as Private Tour options. They do have some restrictions, so it's a good idea to confirm before hand.
