Holidays in Washington

With 650,000 residents, you're sure to meet plenty of new friends!

Washington is, as you're surely aware, where you can marvel at White House and the Washington Monument. Arlington National Cemetery and the Lincoln Memorial are just as amazing.

An outing to Francis Pool or the Washington D.C. Madame Tussauds is a terrific opportunity for some quality family time. Are the kids still full of energy? Don't think you are done yet! Keep up the fun with a visit to Panther Family Fun Center and Water Mine Family Swimmin' Hole.

Want to see the wildest spot in town? Then call in at the Smithsonian's National Zoo, where the entire family can come face-to-face with a few of the wonders of the magnificent animal kingdom.

For a calming morning out, head over to the United States Botanic Garden or the Botanic Gardens. The wandering pathways and beautifully landscaped garden beds are a joy to the senses.

Slip off your shoes and feel the cool grass beneath your feet at a green space like Ellipse or Tidal Basin. You can also get outside and stretch your legs at Meridian Hill Park or Lafayette Park.

Remember to drop in to NASA Visitor Center or White Visitor Center. The helpful staff can offer you advice and inspiration to make the most of your time here.

Feel the cool mist rising out of the pools below as the swirling water crashes over the edge of Great Falls and Juney Whank Falls.

Absorb the scenic views and the calming sounds of moving water at Turquoise Lake and Kobuk Wild River. To spot any waterbirds you may have missed, it's also worth a trip to Kugururok River and Namakan Island.

Put on some comfy shoes and get ready for adventure. There are lots of nature reserves in this area that are just waiting to be explored. The fresh, crisp air and natural surroundings at Battery Kemble Park and Soapstone Valley Park are as rejuvenating as it gets. Two further areas to have a look at are National Mall and Bles Park.

Ask the welcoming staff at the Newseum or the National Gallery of Art about one-off happenings. With so many captivating exhibits, you'll want to be sure you don't miss anything important. After more? Also go to the International Spy Museum and the Phillips Collection.

The world of science never ceases to amaze us. Uncover the latest in advances and achievements at the National Museum of Health and Medicine and the Marian Koshland Science Museum. For even more eye-opening displays, add United States Naval Observatory and US Naval Observatory to your schedule of discovery.

Nowadays you don't have to travel the seven seas to behold the many wonders of the world. You can just drop into places like the National Museum of Natural History and the Smithsonian Institution instead, where an excellent variety of rare and unique specimens and items are on display all in the one place.

With so many wonderful art collections to select from, you might need a slight push in the right direction. We suggest picking up a coffee and heading straight for the National Portrait Gallery or the Hirshhorn Museum. More bright canvases and stunning sculptures await you at the Hillwood Museum and the National Museum of Women in the Arts.

Step back in time and learn about the people and events that have helped shape this region at the National Museum of American History and the National Museum of the American Indian. The Historical Society of Washington D.C. and the Anacostia Museum are also worth a day out for an even greater insight into yesteryear.

Step into the past and head to the Jefferson Memorial and United States Capitol. They're superb places to get a real understanding of Washington's history. If you've got the time, the Georgetown University and Tomb of the Unknown Soldier should also be on your itinerary.

Make sure you take the time to traverse Dumbarton Bridge. This enduring crossing has stood with pride for what feels like an eternity, adding some old world character to Washington.

Whether you're a believer or not, houses of worship like Washington National Cathedral and Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception are sure to be among the most tranquil sights you'll encounter during your travels. A lot of spiritually curious travellers also flock to Franciscan Monastery and the Scottish Rite Temple.

When you are exploring new cities, keep in mind that it's sometimes the less celebrated attractions that'll replay in your memories once you're home. Two places which fall into that category here are the Library of Congress and Department of State. There's also plenty to keep you entertained at Bureau of Engraving and Printing and the Folger Shakespeare Library.
