About The Area

Washington, DC, known mostly for being the nation's capital and political hub, shows a different face for visiting tourists when theaters, nightclubs and sports venues come to life with entertainment options.

If you're in DC, there are so many attractions, you'll most likely have to narrow your list down. The abundance of political monuments and museums can be overwhelming. Factor in all of its cultural activities, shopping areas and restaurants, and you'll need weeks to explore everything. However, thanks to the great transit system and condensed location of many of the sights, you can get a good dose of DC in just a few days.

For a high-end stay, head over to National Harbor, where you can enjoy upscale hotels and restaurants. There’s also fun for the kids, as the illuminated Ferris wheel and Peep Store, as well as the unique statue of a giant buried in the sand on the beach, will make their eyes light up with excitement.

Discover the local flavors of the Chesapeake Bay, visit world-class museums, imagine all of the politicking that goes on inside those marble monuments, and revel in the culture that is present in the nation's capital.
