WASHINGTON (AP) - Whether visitors want to try one of the first family's favorite restaurants, discover a sense of history or escape from the crowd to find a museum off the beaten path, Washington is the nation's cultural capital this weekend for inauguration visitors.

The presidential swearing-in on Monday, after all, is only a brief moment in time. So, hundreds of thousands of visitors will be searching for what else to do in a city that has evolved even during the Obama era.

Historian Jane Freundel Levey of Cultural Tourism D.C. says the best place to party may be in Washington's neighborhoods. She says that in the 19th century, it was the citizens of Washington who put on the inaugural parties.

The heavily Democratic city will be partying this time, too.
