Visit Washington DC and New York on this twin centre holiday to America. A holiday to New York and Washington offers an exceptional opportunity to explore the history and culture of two of America’s most important cities.
Washington DC’s unforgettable skyline is marked by some of the world’s most iconic landmarks. The White House, the Capitol Building and the National Mall. Visit the Lincoln Memorial and the world-renowned museums of the Smithsonian Institute. Washington’s newest museum, the International Spy Museum, features the largest collection of publicly displayed international espionage artefacts in the world.. Food lovers will relish a visit to Georgetown where you can stroll off-the-beaten path and find delicious treats at the local eateries.
For most people a first visit to NYC is centred on the island of Manhattan. Stroll through the cobbled streets of the West Village, soak up the atmosphere and bohemian culture; this is where art, music and funky restaurants thrive. Visits to The Met and Guggenheim are also highly recommended for art fans. Ride to the Observatory at the top of the One World Centre in the financial district for a spectacular view over the city’s skyline. Take in as much of the Big Apple as you can!
New York-Public transport is the way to get around. The 7-day unlimited ride MetroCard is usually a good deal so you don't spend $2 on MetroCards each time you hop on the train.
Washington-Draft beers, even the fancy Belgian ones, are half-price at Brasserie Beck weekdays between 5 and 7 p.m.
