I love the atmosphere there, time and again! Kind of a distillate of elite America. Great dining and sights. Nice museums. Perfect for a short trip. Check out Georgetown University and its surroundings filled with vibrant student life. Around Christmas time, behind the White House you'll find Christmas trees decorated in 50 different styles to symbolize the states with toy trains chugging along between them on meandering tracks.

From Dulles Airport to Washington's Mall, the cheapest way to go around is to take the Metrobus 5A (Arrival terminal). 3,1 Us dollars one way, it will take you one hour to go to the corner of D street and 7th street, 5 minutes walk from the Mall, Capitol, museums...

Great memorial, which has become the site of many important speeches and rallies over the years. The view from the Lincoln memorial of the Washington Monument is breathtaking. The Lincoln Memorial definitely gives a dwarfing presence in real life.

Great fun for all who liked watching the TV-series. Also a nice way to get to know NYC. Chance to pop into Steve's and Aidan's bar (to have Cosmos of course) and e.g. to Marc Jacobs shop. Take a foto of you and your frieds in front of Carrie's apartment. Book your tickets beforehand from the website.

Washington DC a huge city and District of Columbia is well known city among all the tourists. Everyone have a dream to visit this city because it is home of many large parks where tourists found biking, hiking, and more activities. Secondly, this city is capitol of United States which provides a lot of sightseeing which are historical and memorial sight. I also have a dream to visit this city and one day this dream became true when my boss give me offer to visit for attending a conference. So, I also take permission from my boss some days extra for visiting this city and after getting permission I went to this city. So, by taking permission I reserved my hotel and up down fare by air on the behalf of my office. For reservation of hotel I was searching cheap hotels on net so that they can understand I am doing misuse by getting permission and while searching on net a site meets with me which provides <a href="http://www.hotelsatanywhere.com/usa/dc/washington-hotels/">hotels in Washington DC</a> at discount offer. I reserved same hotel from this site which were available on other site. This site was looking new and for its popularity it was giving discount offer on reservation. On the first day, I leave my home town early morning and fly to this city by air and it takes four to five hours and it was also late one hour. As my flight entered to this city I saw skylines and amazing view of this city from flight which was so amazing. By seeing this city I was feeling very lucky to myself that form my office I opt for this conference. By leaving flight at international airport, I came outside and totally surprised by seeing this great city and was feeling very nervous. So, first of all I take breakfast and take some information from restaurant owner and then hire a taxi to reach hotel. By reaching to hotel I checked at reception and collect keys of my room, and like to take rest first because for giving better performance in conference I want some rest. So, after taking some rest, I take some refreshment, and then went outside hotel where I take fruits, juice, and some snacks. By taking snacks, I came back to hotel where I take review of my prepared presentation and at time of dinner I take my dinner and well prepared myself for next day with presentation. On the second day, I leave my bed and went to conference venue. This day was business cum sightseeing day because as I was going to venue I saw some sights from my car which was very nice. Our conference gone up to 7 hours long and it was very interesting and life experiences conference. In this conference, my presentation opts as best performance and everyone give me best wishes. After completion of my presentation, I came back to my hotel where I take some rest and then went outside where I take dinner with the enjoying of nightlife and contact for tour operator that can visit this city. On the third day of my trip, first of all I went to national Mall which was a distinctive park filled with monuments, memorial parks, and museums. All the sights which were available on this national park were very nice. By seeing this national park I went for other attractions of this city white house and Washington monument which were very nice buildings and the white house to which I see in photos was very nice. I saw it only from outside because no one has permission to enter into white house. This day I also enjoyed nightlife of this city which was very interesting and I enjoyed it in an open environment. This day of my trip was very nice all the sites to which them I see were most memorable and historical place. This day of trip was sightseeing day to which I take enjoy. On the fourth day, I went to Rock Creek Park which was very large and it was situated in the downtown of this city. At this park I take enjoy of hiking and biking which were my favorite adventures. In this city, so many parks were there which were very large and all the park were crowded to which them visitors were enjoying. By enjoying at this park I also visit other attractions like art museum, history museum, space, and holocaust museum. At the time of night I went to a club where I enjoyed nightlife. On the fifth day, I went to see national zoo which was one of the famous attraction and at this zoo a lot exciting ridings were there and in this zoo a lot of animal exhibits were there which were very nice. After exploring this zoo, I went to see some memorial destinations like Lincoln memorial and reflecting pool which was very nice attraction of this city. This day I went to some park where colorful and musical fountains were there. This day of trip was very nice and I also remembered my all days of this city. On last day, I went to market from where I take some good things and a pair of formal wear for my boss. After shopping I take my lunch, came back to hotel, packed luggage, and leave hotel with some colorful memories. After leaving hotel, I went to airport where I got my flight and fly to my native place with life changing moments of this city.

I have been visited so many destinations in united sates but never visit capital of united states that’s was my dream city and I want to visit this destination. When I met with my friends then all of us share feelings to each other and the majority was for traveling these holidays. But all of us demands to visit different destinations these holidays. But at last we decided to three destinations together. We always prefer to travel by air but select three destinations so we choose our travel by air and road. Like other trips we also made our plan to reserved <a href="http://www.hotelsatanywhere.com/">cheap hotels</a> at all destinations. But for the reservation of these hotels we search a lot of hotels sites on internet but we choose only one of them. First of all we reserved our hotels and air tickets for San Francisco because we were going to this city and the rest of cities planned later.
San Francisco that is known by major city of California and whose destination golden gate bridge comes under seven wonders of the modern world. This city is very large and well known for its liberal community in bay area. In this city we enjoyed our three to four days and that’s was possible because of its famous landmarks and <a href="http://www.hotelsatanywhere.com/usa/ca/san-francisco-hotels/">cheap San Francisco hotels</a> that were containing with all facilities and very closer to all major landmarks like china town, golden gate bridge etc. we get this city by air and as we are getting closer to this city we see great view of skyline which attracts our eyes and they were looking very nice. Within these days we explore all the famous destinations of this city. In this city we spend at least one day at north beach and ocean beach that were in china town and Richmond because from starting we also became fans of beach. At both beach we get pleasure from all beach activities and enjoyment of sunset at ocean beach is different because that’s was foggy sunset. At both these places we found so many attractive places like streets of china town, mountain lake park, golden gate park, telegraph hill, rose garden, botanical garden, stow lake, Lincoln park, coit tower, parks, temples & churches etc. for enjoying adventures fisherman’s wharf was the great place for enjoying harbor tour by boating and if any visiting this place then must eat seafood that’s very excellent food, and can get opportunity to watch sea lions. In addition to these we enjoy nightlife of this city that’s was very interesting and some exhibits at zoo. We spent our at least one day for harbor tours and to get any attraction in this city is very easy by cable cars. By all spending our all days in this city we make our reservation to our second planned destination.
With a lot of memories and moments of San Francisco we move in the direction of Miami city by air that’s a county of Florida of United States. Before getting this city we have already reserved our hotel from same site which give a list of <a href="http://www.hotelsatanywhere.com/usa/fl/miami-hotels/">cheap hotels in Miami</a> at lowest prices. By getting this site and its hotels we give a great thanks to this site for offering such nice opportunities to us. In Miami we spent our four nights and three days but those days we spent there were very adventurous. This city is belongs to south region of this state. By getting this city first of all we went to tourist information center from where we take some information that this city largest population of Latin American which is known by the name of magic city. This city has several beautiful beaches and we also enjoy all these beaches. Out of these beaches south beach, lummus park beach, and haulover Beach Park were most famous and we enjoyed our days at these beaches. South beach was most famous beach where we get all beach activities but this beach was very strict in discipline. By interacting with local public and travelers we heard that those tourist who visiting Miami did not see south beach then they did not see anything in Miami. By knowing about this beach we did not leave this beach and enjoy our holidays at this beach. The most viewable thing at this beach was duck tour which is very interesting that can not be found at any beach except this beach. This tour was of ninety minutes and it was not so expansive. All the attraction around Miami south beach can be seen by gocar gps tours which showed us museums, botanical garden, holocaust memorial, and other destinations by telling history with fun. In this city that’s was our bad luck that we can see any events and concerts in this city because that time no events were there and mostly events organizes in winter season. Jewish museum of Florida, art museum, bay Front Park, and oleta river Recreation Park were other famous landmarks that were very interesting places. Besides all these, Miami seaquarium, jungle island, and Miami metro zoo that’s a very large zoological garden in Florida with large number of wild animal from every corner of world. These entire destinations were adventure places with great outings. By enjoying four nights and three days we hire a taxi for our next destination that’s was the dream of us and enjoy this destination by road.
At late evening, we leave Miami city and move in the direction of Washington dc by road with the help of taxi. We take this taxi on rent by online on net with the help of searching by renting car. After taking taxi, we drive to this road ourselves. Although journey was not so long it was of 16 hours but we travel it one night and one day because of passing through Carolina and Virginia Beach. By seeing beautiful view of Virginia Beach in Virginia State we can not control ourselves and take stay at this beach for enjoying. We get this beach early morning by which we can get sunrise of this beach otherwise we can see sunrise hmmmm. By enjoying beach activities we reached Washington dc up to evening.
Washington dc capital city and heart of United States that is most famous for its beautiful architecture, sightseeing, history, and culture of United States. The main remarkable and most viewable thing of this city is its skylines. At the time of late evening we reached to this city and check in first of all our <a href="http://www.hotelsatanywhere.com/usa/dc/washington-hotels/">cheap Washington dc hotels</a> that’s was reserved from same site. First of all we take some refreshment and then went to markets for taking juice and fruits. We also enjoyed streets of this city. By getting our dream city we were feeling so excited and waiting of next morning to explore this city. In this city first of all we went to national mall that’s was surrounding with so many monuments, memorials, museums, and other. This mall was the national green park in the heart of this city. Washington monument, art gallery, and world war museums were famous sights at this place. All major destinations like white house, US capitol building, Lincoln memorial, reflecting pool, and all top attractions were situated within a very few walking distance. Washington zoo was most famous familiar sight because that’s was informative and enjoying with all animals. In this city we also enjoyed hiking and biking at Downtown Park but they were so crowdy because of capitol city but we enjoyed them very comfortably. In spring time and at all other times a lot of festivals like kite fest and other events can be enjoyed. We spend five days in this city and by enjoying this city with full entertainment we leave this city for our hometown by air. As we leave this city we feel very happy because only luckiest person get these chances for making their dream true and we see all our dream destinations. With these adventure memories and moments we fly to our home city.
