You'd never stall the fast movers on the left side of a Metro escalator or pose for photos in front of the White House, but it's worth playing tourist for a day with today's deal from Capitol River Cruises: Pay $12 and receive two adult tickets for a boat trip on the Potomac (a $24 value). Choose your departure time (tours start every day on the hour between noon and 9 p.m.) and hop aboard one of the two Nightingale boats, which push off from the Washington Harbor in Georgetown. This 45-minute narrated jaunt offers unparalleled views of the Kennedy Center, Washington Monument, Lincoln and Jefferson memorials, Watergate, and much more. Bring your camera for postcard-worthy shots, a few extra bucks to enjoy the boat's fully loaded bar and snack stand, and your sea legs -- or at least river legs. Fanny packs are optional.
