Washington DC Travel Guide

United States Capitol Buildling Washington DC USAThe capital of the United States, Washington, D.C., is one of those cities you really must visit. The number of historic buildings and landmarks, in a beautiful riverside setting, among renowned Washington, DC hotels is truly astounding. From majestic monuments to heart-touching memorials, this seat of government is one of the most visited cities in the world. The city bustles with activity while offering genteel southern hospitality and charm.

Although busy, the highway system is modern, easily navigable and finding various Washington, DC hotels isn't difficult. There are three airports serving the city: Washington National (DCA), Dulles International (IAD) and Baltimore-Washington International (BWI). The options for seeing the sights include bus tours and utilizing excellent public transportation such as the Metrobus and Metrorail. If you choose to drive, you can easily incorporate these choices into your plan. Additionally, visitors often tour several nearby cities in order to take in as much U.S. history as possible.

Mall with Reflecting Pool WWII Memorial Lincoln Memorial and Potomac River Washington DC USAWashington is a great walking city with many attractions relatively close together. The best advice is to do a little pre-planning! Get a great map and plot out your “must-sees”. First time visitors should see the White House, U.S. Capitol and the Supreme Court as these buildings represent the three branches of government. Walk the National Mall park which connects iconic memorials including the Washington Monument, Jefferson Memorial, Lincoln Memorial and several war veteran memorials. If you are citizen, be prepared to be in awe! Don’t hesitate to indulge your patriotism and really get into the amazing history of this great country. From another country? You will certainly enjoy the architectural beauty of the many landmarks and learning about their historical significance.

There are other one-of-a-kind experiences to consider during your never-long-enough visit. First, you can make the most of your time by selecting one of our close-to-the-action discount hotels to minimize travel time. Then, plan, plan, plan! Choose a portion of the renowned Smithsonian Institution which interests you and tour it. Visit the historic National Cathedral for magnificent architecture. See the Eternal Flame which honors slain President John F. Kennedy at peaceful Arlington Cemetery; you can also see the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier here. The two hour Moonlight Tour of Monuments is an awesome way to experience the landmarks which are lighted at night.

Washington Monument and Cherry Blossoms Washington DC USAOf course, there are other attractions to be enjoyed in this great city. The National Zoological Park is open year-round and is free! Take a one hour tour of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Get relaxed by taking a cruise on the Potomac River or taking a walking tour of tree-lined cobblestone streets and stately homes in Georgetown. If you are lucky enough to be here in the spring, you will be blessed with the Cherry Blossom Festival. The weather in this area is temperate, making visiting almost any time of the year the right choice!

There is one problem with Washington, D.C. – there is simply too much to do! It is never too early to begin planning. The list of top ten DC hotels would probably require thirty or more!
