The heart and soul of American democracy, we love Washington DC for its monuments, museums and neoclassical buildings that offer a treasure trove of fascinating political history.
Take a tour of the White House; visit the awe-inspiring Lincoln Memorial; or gain free entry to all 19 museums contained in the Smithsonian Institution. Exploring DC on foot is like walking through the pages of a history book, as you pass by the statues and temples from the Washington Monument to the Martin Luther King Jr Memorial. Venture away from Washington’s impressive collection of monuments and you‘ll find distinguished neighbourhoods including the lively bars and restaurants of Georgetown and Shaw. Or use Dupont Circle as your meeting point, a leafy geometric haven filled with galleries and boutique stores.
