Washington DC Holidays

Venture into the United States’ capital on a Washington DC holiday and discover the past and present of the country’s infamous political scene. Tales of power and democracy run through the city’s veins and are ready to be discovered through its many monuments, museums and memorials. 

Known as America’s Front Yard, the National Mall is full of iconic monuments, bookended by the U.S. Capitol Building and the Lincoln Memorial. Take a walking tour and let an expert guide take you around the national park to get a deeper insight into some of the United States’ pivotal historical events through the monuments and memorials dedicated to them. 

Washington DC’s Charming Neighbourhoods 

There’s even more to the city than just its political significance; there’s a sense of small-town charm not found in many cities. For a glimpse of life as a local, visit some of the diverse neighbourhoods surrounding the city centre. Head to the relaxed and easy-going area of Adams Morgan and shop for unique items at independent stores and experience its buzzing nightlife, or walk along streets of beautiful historic houses and quaint independent bakeries in Georgetown. 

Experience even more of the country with a multi-centre holiday and complete your visit to the United States’ capital with a trip to the equally historic cities of New York and Philadelphia. If you fancy a little more rest and relaxation, hop on a short flight to Bermuda and head to the pink sands.
