What should I book before I arrive?

Some museums and tourist sites Get tickets for the african american history museum online with timed entries and get there early (or hit the museum late in the day (3-5) when crowds are thinner; the white house, the capitol (through your congressperson) if a us citizen; some popular restaurants (use open table); nats or caps games (although some day before, nosebleed seats are available at cheap prices); shows at the local theaters, etc.
