Washington D.C. Hotels

The capital of the USA is where you'll find some of the nation's most important buildings, and as you walk along historic Pennsylvania Avenue you'll see the White House sitting amongst its manicured lawns, neoclassical buildings with grand pillars or domes, and statues of various presidents and important political figures from across the years. Washington D.C. also manages to be a busy cultural hub, with bookstores and theaters, art galleries and museums offering a fascinating calendar of events.

Things to see

The iconic Lincoln Memorial is housed inside a Greek style temple with large marble columns. There are wide steps leading to the memorial, and you'll see tourists relaxing and looking out over the calm Reflecting Pool. Here you'll see the reflection of the monolithic Washington Monument with 555 feet of marble and limestone. Book a tour and you can wander through the narrow hallways to the elevator which takes you 500 feet up the monument to sweeping views of the important city below. One of the newer structures in the city is the glass fronted Newseum which celebrates modern journalism and press freedom through interactive displays and fascinating exhibits. There are several theaters with documentaries, as well as screenings of important news events and historic sports occasions. Amongst the well laid out permanent exhibitions you'll learn the history of the news and how it's made, with chances to try your hand at reporting or photography in the state of the art interactive newsroom.
