What should my girlfriend and I do on a day trip to Washington DC? We're willing to do a mix of touristy and not-touristy things, so suggest whatever's fun or interesting!

This weekend, my girlfriend and I are taking a college-subsidized trip to Washington DC from about 9 AM to 6 PM on Saturday. What's good to do in DC in that timeframe?
I'm not clear on all the details, such as where exactly we will be dropped off, at the moment, but I'll update later when I get more info on the trip.
We're both pretty unfamiliar with the city. I've been to the Air and Space museum a long time ago (I was 10 or 11, I think), and the Holocaust museum relatively recently, and I was at the Rally to Restore Sanity on a tight schedule, but I've not really had free run of the city like this trip offers.
But we don't just want to do touristy things like visiting the monuments. What else is good to visit there in our short timeframe? My girlfriend is 20, so we can't really visit bars without a dining area, but otherwise, any interesting restaurant that isn't too expensive (>$25 a person) is a welcome suggestion.
