Washington D.C. Vacation Rentals

Choose a Historic Rental Home in Washinton D.C.

America's capital is a magical vacation destination, and at Holidu you'll find hundreds of vacation homeoptions to make your stay there even more enjoyable. Some of the most appealing of all are the historic homes in suburbs like Georgetown or Columbia Heights. Victorian mansions offer all the space you could need, with large yards and easy access to Downtown.

Find a Downtown Apartment Near Washington's Major Attractions

However, if you need a vacation rental at the heart of D.C., you've got plenty of other options. Check out contemporary apartments on major streets like Massachusetts Avenue, K-Street or 8th Avenue, pick a cosyplace on Capitol Hill near Congress, or cast your gaze over the Potomac to Arlington. All over the city you'll find compact and spacious places for couples and families alike, so find somewhere that really meets your needs.

Vacationing in Washington D.C.

Explore the Capital of the USA

Washington D.C. is the beating heart of American democracy - a place where you can walk in the footsteps of heroes, commemorate the fallen, visit museums on almost anything, and learn about what makes your country tick. For such an important city it's fairly small, with a manageable core that you can walk or cycle around, and a handy Metro network.

Fly, Drive or Take the Train to D.C.

Getting to D.C. won't pose any problems. Flying into Dulles Airport is the easiest route, but some domestic flights also touch down at the smaller Ronald Reagan National Airport. If you would prefer to stay on the ground, the city is served by I-95 (from New York and Philadelphia) and I-66 (from the west), and Amtrak services stop at Union Station, not far from the Mall.

See Everything You Want to See During Your Vacation

Getting around Washington D.C. takes a little getting used to, but you'll master it in no time. Most of the suburbs are connected to the center via the Metro or rail services, while I-495 rings the city, making it easy to bypass the Downtown traffic. The majority of the attractions are in a pocket of the city center which you can bike or walk around, so you shouldn't need to rely on taxis.

Activities

A World-Class Destination for Political Animals

With the White House, the Houses of Congress, the Supreme Court, the FBI, the State Department and the Pentagon all in or near the heart of the city, Washington is an incredible place for politics fans to visit.

A Great Destination if You Love Museums

Washington D.C. has a vast selection of museums. Most of them are part of the Smithsonian Institution, which features the fantastic National Air and Space Museum and the Museum of American History, but there are smaller museums dotted around the city too.

An Unbeatable Destination for History Lovers

See the Lincoln, Washington, Jefferson and Roosevelt Memorials and pay your respects to America's greatest presidents. Visit Kennedy's grave in Arlington Cemetery, see the theater where Lincoln was shot, and see the Mall, where Martin Luther King gave his "I Have a Dream" speech.

Top 5 things to do in Washington D.C.

1. Take a Tour of the White House

The home of the American president, the White House is an unforgettable place to visit. Arrange a tour in advance to avoid missing out, as places are limited.

2. Visit the Smithsonian Museums

The Smithsonian could be the world's biggest museum. Made up 11 locations lining along the Mall, including museums dedicated to space, history, Native Americans, art and nature, nobody can see them all in a day.

3. See the Lincoln Memorial

The greatest of Washington's presidential monuments, the Lincoln Memorial is a must-see, with its inscription of the Gettysburg Address and the massive sculpture of the man himself.

4. Enjoy the Atmosphere at Washington National Cathedral

America's spiritual home, the National Cathedral is a beautiful building that is attended by all Presidents, and matches its interior beauty with gorgeous gardens.

5. Take a Walk Around Georgetown

Older than the city itself, Georgetown is one of America's most evocative 18th century neighborhoods. Don't miss the art collection in the Kreeger Museum during your tour.

„Washington's Library of Congress is the largest in the world, holding 535 miles of shelves and 160 million books.“

Useful Information

Climate

Washington's weather tends to vary from chilly during the winter to humid and sweltering in mid-summer. As most visitors find themselves walking a lot during their stay, pick a time when it's warm, but not too oppressive. Around May or June, or October are great times to go.

Gettting around

If you are staying for a week or two, it helps to master the Metro. The Metro runs from 5 am until midnight from Sunday to Thursday, and until 3 am on Fridays and Saturdays - a handy thing to know if you intend to explore the nightlife of the Downtown area.
