Washington Holiday Packages

No need to lobby for a holiday, we know you’ve earned it. Head to Washington, D.C., one of the world's great seats of political power. But the capital of the United States of America is also a place where you can find great dining, world-class shopping and more iconic monuments than you can tip a top hat toward. Holidays to Washington, D.C., can be relaxing escapes for families, singles and busy professionals alike.

Things to do in Washington, D.C.

After touching down at either nearby Reagan National Airport (DCA) or Dulles International Airport (IAD), begin your Washington, D.C., holidays by hopping on the Metrorail, which will take you all over the city and surrounding areas. Or you can pick up one of Wotif’s car hire options in Washington, D.C. and head into the city to see some historical sights on your own time. It's hard to miss striking architectural landmarks such as the soaring spire of the Washington Monument, the dome of the Capitol Building and the columns of the Lincoln Memorial. If you’re visiting during warmer weather, take a riverboat cruise of the Potomac. For two weeks every spring, the cherry trees lining the riverbanks bloom, and there's no better way to see their white-and-pink blossoms than from a boat. Families and history buffs should check out the planes on display at the National Air and Space Museum or engage in a little espionage at the International Spy Museum.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

If you want to spend some money on retail therapy, there is no shortage of shopping in the District of Columbia. In addition to well-known chains, Capitol Hill offers local boutiques, antique shops and an open-air market during the weekends. You'll find high-end shopping downtown, and 7th Street is where up-and-coming artists sell their pieces. Washington, D.C. packages also give you access to a city known for its diverse cuisine. The adjoining neighbourhoods of Adams Morgan and Columbia Heights are the place to go if you're looking for Salvadoran, Ethiopian and Vietnamese cuisine. Capitol Hill is home to ritzy restaurants where you can get a great steak or local seafood.

After you’ve eaten and are ready to check out the nightlife scene, 18th Street in the Adams Morgan neighbourhood has one of the highest concentrations of places to get a good drink. Specialising in everything from craft beer and high-end bourbon to affordable wines and inexpensive pints, bars in the area are incredibly diverse. The neighbourhood can get rowdy on Friday and Saturday nights, so if you’re feeling mellower stop in to listen to some live jazz at one of the clubs lining U Street.
