    Visit Washington, DC
    Our nation’s capitol boasts an impressive array of fascinating attractions, from the powerful monuments and memorials on the National Mall to inspiring cultural treasures like the Smithsonian Institution, Library of Congress and National Gallery of Art.

    Away from these celebrated federal sites, Washington unwinds into a fascinating network of neighborhoods where visitors discover trendy boutiques, notable restaurants, art galleries, historic homes, and lush parks and gardens. Shoppers love the store-lined streets of Georgetown, while jazz music fans won’t want to miss a trip to U Street, where Duke Ellington played his first notes. The arrival of several new eateries has made the nation’s capitol a prime destination for dining out. DC is also earning new recognition as a thriving performing arts town, with 65 professional theatre companies based in the metropolitan area presenting edgy world premieres and celebrated Broadway musicals throughout the year.
