Form a more perfect union with the US capital

Although D.C enjoys a more laid-back vibe than NYC, America’s capital has plenty going on. Washington offers up a lively food scene, buzzing nightlife, and a tranche of iconic museums and monuments where you can soak up centuries of history. It’s also home to the nation’s corridors of power, of course, and you can even tour iconic government buildings from where momentous world events have been directed.

Stroll along the National Mall, past stunning presidential memorials, and visit the Smithsonian’s many free museums. Take a ghost tour of Georgetown, check out Artechouse, a gallery that blends futuristic tech with interactive games, and channel your inner James Bond at the International Spy Museum.

Escape the city among the trails of the huge Rock Creek Park. Visit in spring, when the city’s 3,000 cherry blossom trees burst into bloom, and the Tidal Basin in West Potomac Park becomes the focal point for the annual National Cherry Blossom Festival. When evening comes, sip a pre-Prohibition cocktail at buzzy Provision No.14 and tap into the community spirit at cultural hub Busboys and Poets. Book your flights to Washington D.C today to get your adventure started.
