Start your Washington holiday with a Gray Line tour from Union Station, itself a grand ceremonial building with upscale shopping, restaurants and bars. The half day tour will familiarise you with the DC geography as you either drive by or step off and explore the city highlights such as the White House, the War Memorials, FBI Headquarters and Embassy Row. The major landmarks are predominantly linked by green spaces with foot and bike paths, making a Bike the Sights tour an ideal way for the more energetic to see the city.
The central business district turns rather quiet when the government workers call it a day. This is the time to head for areas like Georgetown and Adams Morgan with their trendy eateries, wine bars, jazz clubs and late night book stores.
Where you stay is the heart of your holiday. Location reigns supreme but do you prefer resort facilities or unique and boutique? Historic and old world or modern and shiny?
We aim to present choices across the spectrum but there are many hundreds of places to stay and not room to feature them all. Do speak to your Bon Voyage travel consultant and click the video for our take on this important topic.
We would rate the Bellagio as one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. Fabulous, glitzy, exciting. We loved having breakfast at the poolside café... one of our best experiences ever. If it hadn't been for you we wouldn't have had the suite or cabana and we loved them. We both agreed that the hotel was the best for us and you had suggested that so well done!Leonore & Mike Rumford
