Washington DC Holidays

Treasure trove of historic sites

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. Follow in the footsteps of infamous visionaries exploring the local neighbourhoods, Georgetown is not to be missed with its cobbled sidewalks, grand homes and plenty of bustling restaurants filled with tourist and locals, making you feel right at home. Or use Dupont Circle as your meeting point, a leafy geometric haven filled with galleries and boutique stores.

Extend your stay in the USA with a classic multi centre holiday combining Washington DC with iconic New York and leafy Boston and create the perfect blend of shopping, sights and East Coast culture.

Top Tips from our Experts

Jessica

Destination Manager

"The best way to explore Washington DC is by foot, pick up at map from your hotel concierge. This was way to get the feel for the layout and it is easy to navigate your way round. Alternatively book a hop-on-hop-off-bus as they will stop at all the major attractions."
