Visit Washington, D.C.
Washington, District of Columbia, is of course the nation's capital and the second most visited city in the United States. With its historic buildings, magnificent museums, gourmet restaurants, quirky ethnic stores and up scale shopping, Washington offers something for just about every taste.
Most first time visitors to Washington will want to see the stand out sights – the White House, the Capitol, the Washington Memorial, The Library of Congress, Arlington Cemetery, the Pentagon and of course the wonderful museums, which deserve a visit all to themselves. As well as the well known landmarks, there are many beautifully restored historic areas to explore, perhaps the best of which is Old Town Alexandria, where you can explore eighteenth and nineteenth century houses, stroll on cobblestone streets and enjoy the delightfully restored waterfront with its many restaurants and bars.
Dupont Circle is another historic area, and boasts many fascinating shops, restaurants, art galleries and theaters. The centre of the gay scene in Washington, tourists both straight and gay who're seeking a fun, safe and lively night club scene can do no better than to head for Dupont Circle after dark.
Georgetown is the oldest part of town, and has a air of elegance, where even the thrift shops only offer designer labels. Very much the place where the young up and coming politicos meet and greet, you'll find some of the most fashionable restaurants in the city here. It's also the home of Georgetown University, so there are plenty of cheaper eateries catering to the student population.
If you are feeling adventurous, why not explore Chinatown or the Latino/African quarter, Adams Morgan, where you'll find some of the hippest shops, night spots and restaurants in Washington. At night, Adams Morgan bursts into life, with hot rhythms and enticing cooking smells emerging from what seems like every doorway. Many travelers agree that the best of American fusion cuisine can be found in these exciting parts of town.
Washington, District of Columbia, has the air of a grand old lady. But whether you are visiting on business and taking an hour or two for leisure, or whether you have made the District of Columbia your vacation destination, she certainly knows how to swing her skirts!
It's a fascinating city that you'll want to come and sample again and again.
