Destination Guide: Washington D.C.

Where America's history meets its future
Stroll around the French-designed National Mall park, imagining the decision-making inside the White House. Delve into American history with a glimpse of the Declaration of Independence at the famed Smithsonian Institution.

Food and Drink

Dine with Washington's power elite or try Ethiopian snacks. Contemporary American restaurants in Penn Quarter and Georgetown are a popular choice with politicians and VIPs. Contemporary Indian and traditional Chinese fill bustling Chinatown. Sample authentic and inexpensive Ethiopian dishes like traditional crepe-style injera bread on U Street.

Sightseeing and relaxation

Indulge in the American Dream and views over the capital. Greet a president at the Lincoln Memorial or feel in charge of America's power hub from the top of the needle-like Washington Monument. Stroll past the iconic, domed Capitol then contemplate Elvis' music, the Star-Spangled Banner and Albert Einstein's pipe at the Smithsonian Institution.

Shopping

Pick up trendy designs or one-off antique pieces. Washington's Adams Morgan district lures the fashion conscious with urban clothing and quirky accessories. Search in Georgetown to find antiques, delicate costume jewellery and crystal wine decanters.

Nightlife and Entertainment

Tap your toes to jazz or go for the full-on American sporting experience. Enjoy cool rhythms and spicy Creole dishes at Blues Alley Jazz in Georgetown or sedate orchestral sounds at the renowned Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Cheer along to basketball at the Verizon Center or baseball at Nationals Park.
