"The Capital of the World," awaits, along must-see sites like Instagram-friendly H Street Corridor, dotted with quirky bars and local designers working their magic, or hipster friendly U Street, teeming with the remains of a historic jazz hub. See a grand neoclassical building at the Federal Triangle, also a platform for "oh yum!" food trucks galore, then marvel at the majestic domed US Capitol building, before posing outside the (eep) White House. For lunch, see a city come to life in the many dishes served at Union Market, including delicacies from a 100-year-old Italian gem, then head to an eccentric Mansion on O Street, or see an urban legend come to life in Rock Creek Park. Feeling brave? End the day by climbing stairs straight out of a horror movie.

Where you’ll go

Follow in the footsteps of presidents and tech giants alike in a whirlpool of diversity in the heart of DC, along streets pulsating with attractions, like bright-as-bubblegum H Street where a weekly farmer's market pops up, or nearby U Street, once home to the jazz greats. Head to a hub of politics next, passing wonders like the home to the Declaration of Independence, before traveling to the iconic home-to-the-president White House on Pennsylvania Avenue. Meander along a maze of flavors at Union Market, a melting pot of diverse dishes, then dart to a weird and wonderful mansion bursting with secret doors and quirky attractions. Nestled in a park awaits an unofficial wonder of the world, then walk up the creepy stairs featured in The Exorcist (if you dare).

    • Discover the very best of a world-famous capital, while making time for hidden gems straight out of an Agatha Christie novel.
    • No way you'll want to miss the iconic White House, but also see a marvelous mansion teeming with (shh) secrets.
