Washington and Capital Region
Experience the best of the U.S. Capital Region from famous attractions and shopping to beaches, mountains, scenic drives and beyond. The nation’s seat of government, a wealth of museums, verdant mountains and roaring rivers, fishing and rafting. This is the Capital Region: Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Washington D.C.
There’s no denying that Washington D.C., the world’s first planned capital, is also one of its most beautiful - a marriage of geometry and art. Travel to Washington D.C. and find world-class museums and art galleries, tree-shaded and flower-filled parks and gardens, sophisticated hotels ideal for trips and holidays, bars and restaurants and nightlife.
Surrounding this power-driven city is an abundance of natural glories. There are quaint fishing villages on the coast, bucolic mountain towns born when the railroads where first built and, here and there, large cities with rich histories. There are surprises around every curve in the road - and the roads are very curvy.
Maryland is often referred to as “America in Miniature”: visitors can climb mountains in the morning and reach the Atlantic Coast by twilight. Maryland features also four drivable Civil War Trails that allow visitors to follow in the footsteps of soldiers from this historical era.
Virginia’s renowned wine trails are a way of life for travellers. And if you are searching for fresh crab and oysters, Southern ham or Soul food, Virginia will please the ‘foodie’ in you. In the summer, surf waves at Virginia Beach or hike along Virginia’s Appalachian Trail. Year-round, Virginia’s Mountain resorts offer four seasons of outdoor, epicurean and spa experiences.
West Virginia is a state where the Appalachian culture shows clear links to the European heritage of the people who settled here. Throughout the state, artisans and artists have found a home where they can pursue their crafts and fine arts in a restful atmosphere and breathtaking environment. From mountains to shore, there’s so much to see and do.
