Capital Region USA

On holidays to the Capital Region, discover America’s civil rights story, visit Civil War battlegrounds, journey from the coast to the mountains and enjoy delightful local food and drink. Start your adventure in Washington D.C.: home of the White House and immortalised in countless movies and TV shows. This spectacular and walkable city boasts 17 free museums, galleries and a zoo as well as a collection of world-famous monuments. Walk around the peaceful Reflecting Pool, gaze in awe at the Washington Monument and take some time to reflect at the moving Vietnam War Memorial. On your Capital Region road trip you will journey from the sweeping bays and protected shorelines of Maryland up into the hills of Virginia. Here you will find the legendary Blue Ridge Mountains and Shenandoah National Park. Holidays to the Capital Region combine history and scenery for a true view of all things American.
