Washington, DC

As the capital of the United States and one of the largest metropolises in the nation, Washington, DC is not only a living embodiment of American history, but a quintessential representation of city life. Since its discovery in the 17th century and its official establishment as the District of Columbia in 1790, the capital has played host to countless social protests, survived a series of domestic and international attacks, and launched the careers of thousands of respected politicians and statesmen.

Year after year, DC maintains a strong tourist industry and enjoys a respectable international reputation thanks to its incredible array of world-famous monuments, landmarks and museums, including the White House, the Washington Monument and the Smithsonian Institution. While the city is steadily progressive in its social and political spheres, DC still manages to preserve a rich sense of history and traditional values – one that lingers noticeably in everything from its fiercely protected heritage sites to its charming historical restaurants and inns. With luxurious accommodation and exquisite entertainment options at every turn, a visit to Washington, DC proves a truly capital experience for the Elite Traveler.
