Welcome to the District of Colombia, also known as the capital of the United States. The authoritative center of our nation has been a dynamic part of United States history; Washington D.C. has seen the highs and lows of revolution, victory and defeat.

The District of Columbia is comprised of donated land from Maryland on the border with Virginia, placing it at the forefront of many of our nation’s most historic events. Traditionally thought of as a town centered on its rich history, the city is not without its share of modern flair as well. Washington D.C. is an ideal place to learn about the rich history of the United States and see many impressive memorials dedicated to the many icons of American society. offers simple booking and travel options for any traveler headed to the nation’s capital. The city can be reached by any of its three servicing airports: Dulles International (IAD), Reagan National Airport (DCA), and the Baltimore-Washington International Airport (BWI). Flight arrangements can be made at ( Public transportation is available from whatever airport you should choose, and hotel accommodations and information can be found at (

Upon your arrival you may be excited to see some of the more famous attractions that Washington D.C has to offer. Travelers and tourists alike would be interested in visiting the National Mall, an area that includes popular destinations such as the Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Constitution Gardens and Korean War Veterans Memorial.

Memorials are not the only sightseeing attractions in the District of Colombia as many internationally recognized museums are located in and around the National Mall. The Smithsonian Institution, National Museum of Natural History, National Gallery of Art and the National Air and Space Museum are all popular destinations for visitors seeking knowledge and culture. It should be noted that the National Mall is a common location for protests, political demonstrations and other large gatherings so do not be surprised if you encounter a large event during your tour of the city.

Should you get tired of Washington D.C.’s many illustrious monuments and museums, try venturing out to places such as Chinatown, Columbia Heights, Logan Circle, Adams Morgan and Georgetown. These neighborhoods all offer different flavors of cuisine and nightlife. Known for its live music and diverse bar scene, U Street is also a popular destination for travelers wishing to experience some of Washington D.C.’s less traditional diversions.

Most of the city’s most popular destinations are located along the Metro Line. However, be sure to plan accordingly should your adventures take you off the beaten path. The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, or simply the Metro, is one of the world’s most comprehensive public transportation networks. The rail system consists of five color coded train lines, all of which intersect together at various points downtown. The Metro also operates a bus line should more regionally oriented transportation be necessary.

Speaking of “off the beaten path,” there are many sights to be seen in the surrounding areas of the city. Arlington Cemetery is a famous final resting ground for many of our nation’s fallen heroes and can be reached easily from Washington D.C. proper. 
Should you decide to visit our nation’s capital, can make the booking process for your trip a breeze.
