Don't be fooled into thinking that a trip to Washington D.C is just about history and politics. Granted, as the US capital city this is an important part of its appeal, but beyond the obvious sightseeing you'll discover much more.

Gone are the days where Washington D.C was seen as stuffy or political, trendier than ever this cosmopolitan destination is home to eclectic neighbourhoods, incredible gastronomy, vibrant nightlife and a great shopping scene. Combine time spent seeing 'must see' attractions like The White House and Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool with days browsing in upscale boutiques, people watching in quaint pavement cafes or drinking cocktails at the hippest rooftop bars. Keep your eyes peeled for the Red Hook Lobster Pound, a popular food truck that's on the move each day or enjoy a leisurely picnic in Rock Creek Park. Explore by bike, or hire a car and take a daytrip to Mount Vernon and colonial Williamsburg.
