Arriving in Washington

Plan Your Washington Holiday

Travel to Washington and experience a city steeped in history and moulded by modern ingenuity. Tour eminent Capitol Hill by day and experience the rush of the city’s music scene by night. Sample the dizzying variety of tantalizing and oft-experimental global cuisine in the city, or sit down to a hearty, traditional American meal in Old Town Alexandria. Take a stroll through historic Georgetown and visit the plethora of local shops and boutiques, or tour the reverently lit Washington monuments in the chill of night.

When you book your tickets to Washington, you can be certain of a holiday rife with adventure and excitement. The best time to take full advantage Washington’s innumerable attractions is between March and May, and again between September and December, when weather is mild and temperate. If you’re looking to visit the city on a budget, consider travelling in winter or summer for easy access to cheap hotels in Washington.
