Washington D.C. (USA) Reviews
Description:City: Washington / Country: USA / World Region: North America
Newest Review: ... Americas Constitution these places are free to get in and so lots to get through. You have to do a passport background check the 24 hours before you enter the Whitehouse but apart from that in you go. You don't get to see The Oval Office or Michelle Obama's bathroom but well worth the tour. The Capital Building is surprisingly beautiful inside and again worth a peak, open during the day when ... more

There is no city quite like Washington DC. It's effectively the power capital of the world and its sprawling authoritive pristine white government buildings and arrow straight streets and snooker table green parks mean you really do have to keep off the grass when you are told to, men in black suits with ear pieces likely to jump out and unholster their guns if you do stray. But for all that formality and manicured appearance of the grand and imposing government buildings and museums it is the democratic capital of the United States and so, rather contradictory, its locked and bolted grand oak doors are thrown open to the public in the day time and its access all areas, .

I am not a city lover, but there are a few exceptions and Washington D.C is definitely one! I have been lucky enough to visit Washington on 4 occasions now so feel I know it quite well. Like any city it pays to do your homework prior to visiting to enable you to get the best from your visit. I hope my review will be useful to anyone planning a visit. Getting there. *********** Getting to Washington from the U.K is not cheap. Fares vary enormously so it is worth shopping around. We flew with B.A from Heathrow to Dulles airport and paid about £250 in December 2000. I have checked the fares for 2005 and was quoted £377.00 including taxes and fees to ...

If you?re looking for an easy vacation, Washington, D.C., may be the answer. Both times I?ve been there, my family and I were advised to take the subway. Part of the reason is that it?s nearly impossible to find parking. Another reason is that it?s cheap. The last time we were there, we were able to get all-day passes for $5. Seven-day passes were $17.50, or $2.50 per day. Most of the city is within walking distance of a station. You?ll be able to get to all of the major attractions without that much walking. Many of the attractions are free, although you may end up spending a lot of lunch. The Smithsonian, which operates many attractions in the area, is ... Read the complete review

While England was coping with Euro '96 and the Spice Girls, I was hard at work getting to know another capital city. It's five years since I spent the best summer of my life in Washington DC. Half way through my university studies, I enrolled in Bunac to become a counsellor at an American summercamp. After a lot of interviews and application forms, I was accepted at TIC Day Camp in the centre of DC. My role was going to be to teach kids and to write, shoot and edit short films. The work was great fun, interacting with kids and going to work each day in the sun. The evenings and weekends were mine to do with as I pleased. Washington was fantastic, and I ...

My first visit to Washington DC was (as so often) for a trade show. I was not very well briefed as to what to expect and because of the show, there was precious little time to do the tourist bit. In the end we only had one day free so I and a small group concentrated on The Smithsonian and a visit to Georgetown, the charming older part of the city. The omissions were put right in the course of two subsequent visits. A vivid memory of this first visit was that, being unbriefed, the sudden explosion of cherry blossom that took place while I was there was astonishing in its unexpectedness and so beautiful it defies desciption. The core of the tourist's ... Read the complete review

Cheap eating and drinking options. Compact sight seeing centre
The taxis, the station, the Reval Inn, the weather in September
Buzz, nightlife, park in Stari Grad, still very much Eastern.
Its hectic nature may not be for everybody.
Quirky, old mosques, great museums, lively bars and cafes, fantastic Albanian restaurants
Lots of ugly apartment blocks, not jam-packed with sights
