Washington dc holidays - Usa
A true sightseer’s paradise
As a city with so many famous landmarks, when you set foot in Washington DC at the start of a holiday from The Co-operative Travel, you might well get a touch of deja vu.
The sheer number of recognisable buildings and locations makes the American capital a true sightseer’s paradise and you certainly won’t be short of places to visit during your package holiday or all-inclusive holiday here.
Go behind the scenes at the seat of power of the world’s most powerful nation on a White House tour, which runs from Tuesdays to Saturdays every week. The Capitol Building and the Smithsonian Institution, home to one of the world’s most prestigious artefacts covering all aspects of American discovery and innovation, are also must-sees.
The National Air and Space Museum is sure to be manna from heaven for all techies and lovers of everything interstellar.
If one of the main draws here is the shopping, be sure not to miss the amazing Union Station. A working museum housing more than 130 shops and an array of restaurants, this is a shopping experience like no other.

experience the nightlife in washington dc
To add some blood-pumping action to your Washington DC holiday, head into the great wide open at Great Falls Park, or experience the adrenalin surge of white water on the James River in downtown Richmond. For a total contrast to the buzz of the city, head up into the Blue Ridge Mountains – and discover the scenery that moved Laurel and Hardy to song in their 1937 film Way Out West!
A huge variety of cuisines and styles are available right across the city, giving you the chance to sample a different menu every day.
Washington DC’s nightlife is similarly hugely varied, but its place at the heart of the history of American jazz music is affirmed by the trendy clubs, bars and shops of U Street. The fun also goes on well into the night at the clubs along the 18th Street strip in Adams Morgan. For a more peaceful end to your day, and to see the city’s landmarks in a new light, take a stroll among the marble buildings and monuments after dark, as they radiate an almost eerie white glow.
