Capital One Arena Tours
Formerly known as the Verizon Center, this Penn Quarter/Chinatown sports and entertainment arena is home to a few of Washington’s top teams: the Wizards and Mystics (basketball), and the Capitals (hockey). Formally sponsored by telecommunications giant Verizon Communications and now sponsored by Capital One Bank, the arena is often locally referred to, tongue-in-cheek, as the “Phone Booth.”
Address: 601 F St NW, Washington DC 20004, USA
4 Tours and Activities to Experience Capital One Arena
Go sightseeing in Washington DC in the comfort of a private luxury vehicle accompanied by your own personal driver. Customize your half-day tour to your interests to take in highlights such as the US Capitol Building, Washington National Monument, Georgetown, a selection of war memorials, or one of the excellent Smithsonian museums. Your driver provides commentary about the sights, but waits in the car while you visit each destination on your own. You can stop for photo ops, or spend more time at favorite destinations—the choice is yours.
On this hop-on hop-off sightseeing tour through Washington DC, travelers can choose to see the city at their own pace. Linger longer at some sites while skipping others entirely. With several stops, you have access to the US Capitol Building, National Mall, Lincoln Memorial, and more. Hear live narration, and choose between a 1-day pass or 2-day pass with a bonus night bus.
Hop aboard a rickshaw (also known as a pedicab) for a 40-minute whirlwind tour of D.C.'s highlights. Bring your own wine or beer (ages 21 and older) and sit back while your guide pedals and narrates the sites. Areas covered include Penn Quarter, Chinatown, and Metro Center areas.
Sip a variety of top-notch, international wines or liquors at Central Wines, a classy wine, beer and spirits shop in the lively Penn Quarter District (or take your tastings to go), and then sit back and enjoy your pedicab ride. Your driver-guide pedals you through Chinatown and the Federal Triangle, as well as past key sights such as the National Portrait Gallery, the Friendship Arch and Ford Theatre. This small-group tour is limited to 9 people or fewer.
