Luxury Holidays North America / Washington D.C.

The timeless grandeur of Washington D.C. is compelling — much beyond architecture and congress; delve a little deeper into this activity-packed city.

Backdrop to countless cinema classics from JFK to St Elmo’s Fire, Washington’s scenic grandeur is compelling. From the White House to Capitol Hill, this is America at its most statuesque.

Yet, there’s much more besides architecture; rub shoulders with congressmen in a Constitution Avenue steakhouse, canoe along the Potomac River, discover everything from Chinese jade to fighter jets at the Smithsonian museums dotted across the National Mall or cycle through the leafy suburbs of city’s North West quadrant to explore Georgetown’s historic waterfront.

When to visit Washington

Due to the warm and pleasant weather, the busy spring and late autumn periods are considered the best times to visit Washington D.C.. Summer tends to be hot and humid, whilst winter can vary from unusually mild days to the possibility of snow; visitors during these months can benefit from quieter crowds at the city's museums. The famous cherry blossom season is an incredibly popular time to visit, which usually lasts for 2 weeks from late March to early April.

Top 5 things to do in Washington D.C.

  • Celebrate an iconic tradition with the arrival of the National Cherry Blossom Festival in spring, which commemorates the 1912 gifting of Japanese cherry trees with a multitude of events
  • Discover upscale boutiques, historic architecture and restaurants bustling with friendly locals on a leisurely walking tour of Georgetown - the city's oldest and wealthiest neighbourhood
  • Explore the history of space travel with a former NASA astronaut upon a bespoke American Excursionist tour of the National Air and Space Museum - a world-renowned Smithsonian institution
  • Marvel over 400 different species at the National Zoo - a free-of-charge Smithsonian institution strongly dedicated to conservation
  • Spend an afternoon basking in the beauty of the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park - a charming place to enjoy hiking, cycling and kayaking along the Potomac River
