Weather & Climate

Climate and best time to visit

The best time to visit D.C. is between September and November, when the autumn breeze blows away the hordes of summer tourists. Watch the leaves change color before winter sets in, bringing with it chilly temperatures and snowstorms, but plenty of good cheer in the form of discounted Washington D.C. vacation rentals. The next best time to visit is between March and May, just in time for the Cherry Blossom Festival in late March and early April. June to August is humid and sticky, with museums and establishments blasting the air conditioners on full force. Bring along light, comfortable clothing and shoes, and a wide-brimmed hat.

Attractions

Sights to soak in

With its concentration of memorials, governmental buildings and museums, the National Mall is a great place to start. Make sure to see the political highlights such as the National Museum of Natural History, the poignant Holocaust Museum, the Jefferson Memorial and the Washington Monument in the National Mall. The East End houses the edgy and interactive Newseum and the International Spy Museum, while the White House and Kennedy Center are located in the West End. The Kennedy Center Rooftop Terrace is perfect for expansive city views.

Head to the Upper Northwest for a visit to the free National Zoo and the majestic National Cathedral. Meanwhile, the historic neighborhood of Georgetown appeals with its colonial structures, calm waterfront and the steps featured in 'The Exorcist'. D.C. offers foodies much to cheer about: there's Salvadoran cuisine comprising corn tortillas, beans, fried pork, etc, and exotic Ethiopian delicacies. Don't forget to sample the unique-to-D.C. smoked half-beef, half-pork sausages which are rightly called half-smokes.

Nightlife

Nightlife in the Capital

Birthplace of the world-famous traveling music circus Thievery Corporation, D.C. offers visitors much to choose from in the form of its comedy clubs, dance clubs, wine bars, sports bars and live music venues. As the sun goes down, the capital descends into a mish-mash of concerts, theater, vaudeville, opera, jazz and more.

The neighbourhoods of Dupont Circle and Georgetown are brimming with watering holes and bars. Head to the Takoma Station Tavern for live go-go music acts (go-go is a mix of hip-hop and funk). End the night with some rest at your Washington D.C. vacation rental.

Local Attractions

Day trips and excursions

Consider doing the bike trails through Capital Crescent Trail, the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park with its lush, shaded trail from Georgetown to Cumberland, and Mount Vernon Trail. Another option is to spend the day at the Rock Creek Park, home to coyotes, squirrels, rabbits and raccoons. Roosevelt Island beckons with its fountains, stone obelisks, natural woods and swamps. It's possible to rent a kayak or sailboat at the Thompson Boat Center for a leisurely cruise down the Potomac.

Local Events
