  • It's a nice river, but when you realize it's significance as part of Washington DC as well as historical significance, it means so much more.  more »
  • This is a river that flows through the city and has green areas to all around, as well as bridges that cross it very cute and what cities, from the most modern to the most classic and antique. In summer it is ideal for sports such as rowing and sailing, as well as catamaran ride to do a tour. In winter you saw snow and is very beautiful. In spring everything Green is full of flowers and autumn, trees present a show like no other. In addition there are many paths to walk, run or ride a bicycle. Beautiful!

Where to stay in Washington DC

Most visitors to Washington, D.C., end up in the East End, the old downtown district containing most of the city's major cultural attractions. For a more authentic Washingtonian experience, consider staying at a smaller hotel just a little north or east of this busy area. Neighborhoods outside downtown offer less expensive accommodations and affordable street parking, as well as opportunities to meet more locals and fewer tourists. Alternatively, try a hotel in Georgetown, packed with high-end shops and Colonial architecture.
