Washington DC holidays

Washington DC & The Capital Region Holidays


Washington DC, the nation’s capital is home to magnificent architecture, monuments and memorials.

Explore the world class Smithsonian museums, stop by the White House and visit Arlington National Cemetery, the final resting place of JFK.

The beautiful Shenandoah National Park is a pretty drive from DC through Virginia countryside.
Drive the Skyline Drive, a dramatic 105 mile National Scenic Byway traversing the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains, hike one of the many trails, or enjoy a horseback ride.
Keep your eyes peeled for the park’s wildlife including black bears and Virginia White Tailed Deer.

Alternatively, simply relax and take in the natural beauty of your surroundings.
