WASHINGTON INFORMATION

Hopefully, if you're going to take in America's capital you'll arrive by plane and not have to try to cope with the complicated road system (you can have the same address but live in different districts, if you get the picture!). You'll no doubt want to take in the Capitol and 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, as well as the other national monuments, including the Smithsonian and a tour of the FBI is a crowbar of an eye opener. Away from the whirr of government agencies and the Mall it's worth taking in some of the lovely parks and districts. Georgetown has the prettiest townhouses, Adams Morgan has a great cultural mix, while Dupont Circle is quite quirky but all have a good selection of eateries and bars.
