About Washington, D.C.
Monuments and memorials, eclectic neighborhoods, true local flavor — Washington, D.C., is a place unlike any other. It’s your home away from home with free museums and America’s front yard. D.C. has evolved into much more than the nation’s capital, as the city received its first Michelin Guide in October 2016, signifying to the world what the locals already know: it’s a true culinary destination.
A true global village, D.C. is home to people of all different cultures, plus more than 150 embassies and international cultural centers. It’s easy to ride the Metro or hop on a bike and explore all that D.C. has to offer. Walk the halls of free Smithsonian museums, paddle on the Potomac River or sit back on a double-decker tour bus and soak up some history. Local shops, funky marketplaces and people-watching hot spots beckon by midday, as nighttime gives way to multi-course dinners and drinks from local breweries. Whichever way you spend your time here, make it count.
Remember to check out the District Wharf, D.C.’s newest day trip destination, bringing famous restaurants, new shops, and beautiful waterfront views together in one place.
