ACCESSIBLE ATTRACTIONS

U.S. Capitol

Stop at the U.S. Capitol, the heart of the country’s democracy. You should know that the Congressional Office of Accessibility Services offers tours designed for tourists with disabilities. Make sure you book in advance. It is also possible to request a shuttle service that takes you from the west side of the Capitol to the entrance of the Visitor Center.

Service animals are welcome, and wheelchairs are available in the building. There are also other services for people who are blind or deaf, such as audio description and sign language interpretation. You can find more information about accessibility on the official website of the Capitol Visitors Center.

National Mall

Visit the National Mall, where many of Washington DC’s iconic monuments are located. All places of interest in the park are accessible to people with reduced mobility. 

Go up to the Washington Monument for spectacular views. The historic obelisk has an elevator that leads to the observation deck. Admission is free, but a ticket is required. We advise you to buy tickets online, preferably one month in advance. It closes at five in the afternoon.

Don’t miss the Abraham Lincoln Memorial and Reflecting Pool. Also worth stopping at are the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the Korean War Veterans Memorial, the Martin Luther King Memorial, and the Thomas Jefferson Memorial.

Arlington National Cementery

Visit Arlington National Cemetery, the largest military cemetery in the United States. It is the final resting place for thousands of soldiers who fought in different wars, as well as other important personalities.

Get to the cemetery via the Blue Line of the Washington DC Metropolitan Area Metrorail. If you are traveling by car, there are also accessible parking lots.

To better orient yourself during the visit, download the accessibility map provided by the official website. We advise you to tour the cemetery on a tourist bus. If you document the disability, you can travel free of charge with a companion. Get more information at Arlington Tours.
