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.
