"Visit in the March and April months"
Washington DC is absolutely gorgeous to visit in the March and April months. With the cherry blossoms in full bloom around the mall and with the monuments as a backdrop, the city is beautiful. The Metro makes transportation easy as you travel to see all that the city has to offer. The Smithsonian Museum, Capitol Hill, the White House and other rich historical monuments make this city one of a kind. Looking to shop? Visit Georgetown, with cute boutiques and your favorite shops aplenty. Catch a show at the Kennedy Center or Constitution Hall. See one of your favorite musical acts or your favorite team at the Verizon Center, located at Gallery Place. The city has much to offer, including top restaurant options. DC has something for everyone!

"Meetings in Washington DC"
Washington, DC, our nations capital is a beautiful city with many free activities to enjoy, including monuments, memorials,and museums. This modern city has lots of American history to explore but was also voted Americas coolest city in 2014. It is an easy walking city but also has a clean, safe and efficient Metro system. This city is perfect for both business and leisure groups with a wide variety of hotel accommodations,restaurants, night life and activities. The spring, including the cherry blossom festival in April and fall are very busy times. If you are looking for a good value try to plan your group in the summer or winter months.

"Diversity of Visitors"
I loved going to the mall and visiting both the Washington and Lincoln Memorial. The city has a lot to offer with a diversity of visitors. The Potomac River is great to enjoy a nice scenic walk. Explore the quaint houses and sidewalks in Georgetown and shops in M Street. Eating experience was not that good, though.

D.C.is beautiful! The summer is like spring here! The best is the running trail, I saw a deer! I don't see beautiful green trees and deer in Houston. This was the best experience I ever had. I love the ability to walk everywhere or take the metro. Houston traffic is terrible, so it was definitely a luxury here.

Washington, DC is incredible! Lots of free things to do, and my students were able to keep costs down. The fact that the monuments/memorials are open until 11:00 pm made for a long, tiring walk our first night, which tired the students out, and made them more malleable for the rest of the trip.
