The Nation’s Capital

Nestled along the Potomac River between Virginia and Maryland, Washington, D.C. is so much more than the nation’s political center. Rich with iconic monuments like the Lincoln Memorial and a plethora of museums, the city also offers a top-notch food scene and eclectic neighborhoods, like old-school Bloomingdale and high-class Dupont Circle. Stroll the National Mall for a quintessentially D.C. experience before diving deeper into all the city has to offer, from the Smithsonian museums to one of the best zoos in the country. And in spring, the picturesque cherry blossom bloom draws more than 700,000 to the city.
