How to enjoy Washington DC

You’ll have so much to pack into your visit DC itinerary, that there will always be a deliciously detailed answer to the question: What kind of day has it been?

  • Take lunch at any restaurant near Pennsylvania Avenue and feel the buzz of lobbyists wooing their high level contacts
  • West Wing aficionados may recognize the South Portico of the National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution as the location of the West Wing office’s exterior shots
  • Georgetown is a must for quaint boutiques, great bookstores and coffee shops. Don’t forget to have a beer in Martin’s Tavern and try the booth where JFK allegedly proposed to Jackie

History, the past as well as tomorrow’s antiquity forged today, oozes from every crack in the pavement of this powerhouse of American politics. It can be seen in the million artifacts of the vast Smithsonian. It can be felt in the whispers of Arlington Cemetery and the perfectly manicured lawns of the White House.

Which isn’t to say that DC is old, it just somehow feels incredibly important. From the echoing grandeur of Union Station to the Dome of the Capitol, iconic architecture is all around you. Take the Lincoln Memorial. Stand on the steps before the Reflecting Pool and say the words: “So even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream.” The shiver you feel is exactly what we mean.

    When to visit Washington DC

    Visit July 4th to celebrate America’s birthday. The Independence Day weekend in the capital is one big party from the Smithsonian Folklife Festival during the day to the spectacular night-time fireworks. For the best seat in the house, reserve a table at a rooftop restaurant.
