Visit Washington DC and the Surrounding US Capital Areas
Immerse yourself in the authentic American experience by visiting the Capital Region USA. From the memorable monuments of Washington DC, to the beautiful beaches and majestic mountains of Maryland and Virginia, history and natural beauty abound.
Begin by checking out the inspiring memorials and hip and historic neighbourhoods of Washington, DC, where history is made every day. Feel the power in the seat of America’s government, marked by the striking architecture of its monuments and museums. A visit to one or more of the famous Smithsonian Museums is a must, and with free entry, it’s no wonder the world’s largest museum complex is one of DC’s top attractions. Across DC, sample the work of some of the country’s most celebrated chefs and afterwards, cap off the evening with an after-dinner drink in one of the city’s high-energy clubs.
In neighbouring Virginia and Maryland, significant US historic landmarks and cultural attractions converge with awe-inspiring natural beauty, from warm sandy beaches and lakes to national parks and majestic mountains. Follow a scenic byway and discover Maryland and Virginia’s treasured collection of quaint towns and the majestic Blue Ridge and Appalachian mountains, where echoes of colonial life and Civil War heritage coexist with artful contemporary culture.
Just one hour north of DC, Baltimore’s buzzing Inner Harbor is the city’s focal point and location for top attractions such as the National Aquarium and the American Visionary Art Museum. Just a short water taxi ride away is Fells Point, the historic cobbled neighbourhood that’s a legacy to Baltimore’s British nautical roots.
