Uncover the history and culture of America's capital on a short break to Washington DC
Beyond Washington's most familiar sites such as the Capitol Building, Jefferson Memorial and the White House, America's capital city is also a lively and cultured urban centre. Casual cafes and upscale bistros line the trendy streets of Georgetown, while the downtown district sizzles with a host of luxurious world-class restaurants.
If shopping is on your mind, then Washington is the place to go. The city abounds with upscale boutiques, antique shops and outdoor markets, while bargain-filled outlet malls can be easily reached from downtown. When it comes to creativity and international influence, explore Dupont Circle, long the bohemian soul of the city and a buzzing neighbourhood for an evening out.
