WASHINGTON D.C. Travel Experiences 

Hotels, Restaurants, tours and more..


Welcome to Washington, D.C.! As the nation’s capital, D.C. is home to places you won’t find anywhere else: the White House, the Capitol Building, the Supreme Court, the Smithsonian Museums, and the Lincoln Memorial, just to name a few. But Washington, D.C. is more than just government buildings and historic monuments—it is also a city of moments, some historical, some incredible, but most of them personal, as residents and visitors discover the city in their own way. Over 175 foreign embassies and countless immigrants from around the world reside in the District, making it a cultural crossroads where you can hear people chatting in Mandarin, Hindi, or Russian as you wait in line for empanadas, kebabs, or hot dogs from a street vendor. The city’s diversity extends to its architecture as classical-style government buildings share the streets with Victorian mansions and even a gothic Cathedral, yet the city maintains an open and airy feel that makes this national capital incredibly approachable and endearing. D.C. has come along way from its rustic beginnings to be one of the liveliest cities on the East coast.

Green Travel Tips

Eco Tourism, Eco Travel, Sustainable Travel, Responsible Traveling

There are many ways to define the environmentally (and culturally) conscious travel industry, but however you are interested in labeling yourself, the most important thing seems to be that more and more people are expanding their “green” habits beyond their own communities and taking it on the road with them when they travel, whether their heading to major cities, small, rural towns or to coastal villages. The basic concepts that all of these buzzwords seem to share, though, are a general concern for sustaining local communities and cultures, reducing each travelers destructive imprint on the earth and its ecosystem (think, “first do no harm”), and bringing awareness and understanding to the traveler about the location and its people, as well as sustainability and environmental issues in general.
