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.
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.
