Capital Region Holidays

The Capital Region of the USA is known around the world for its iconic landmarks and museums but venture beyond Washington DC and you’ll discover culture-rich cities, beautiful beaches, majestic forested mountains and other attractions as diverse as the country itself. Welcome to the historic heartland of America where you can read the US Constitution, be welcomed at a former president’s home or enjoy live jazz in the birthplace of Duke Ellington.

DC is the cultural, political and historical hub of the USA, all within easy access when flying into Washington Dulles International Airport. DC offers a wealth of famous monuments and some of the world’s best museums, many of which are free to enter. You’ll also find some truly diverse neighbourhoods here, each boasting their own distinct shopping, dining and entertainment experiences. Explore waterfront parks, take in a baseball game, cruise along the Potomac River, catch a free performance at the Kennedy Center – the options are endless!

Just an hour north of Washington DC is Baltimore Maryland. The city’s Inner Harbor was once the second largest entry point for emigrants to the US and is now a popular focal point for top attractions, restaurants and bars. Two hours south of the capital, Richmond Virginia offers more than 400 years of history in the form of cobbled streets, great museums and elegant architecture. Don’t miss out on charming small towns like Berlin and Williamsburg too for a true taste of Capital Region Americana.

This region is also blessed with plenty of natural beauty and opportunities for year round adventure. Whether you want to horseback ride along stunning beaches, hike in Shenandoah National Park, windsurf in Chesapeake Bay or try rock climbing in the Appalachian Mountains, there’s sure to be something to get your heart pumping. And, with dining options from crab shacks to top-rated restaurants plus over 300 wineries to choose from, you’ll be spoilt for choice when you want to refuel at the end of the day.

The Capital

The Capitol BuildingBoth an international crossroads and America’s ultimate hometown, Washington DC is the powerhouse of the nation, with iconic buildings, majestic memorials, unique neighbourhoods, top-rated restaurants, gorgeous parks and internationally acclaimed art. Explore the National Mall, browse the boutiques of historic Georgetown, visit the galleries in hip Adams Morgan and enjoy an evening meal in elegant Dupont Circle.

The Scenic Byways

Travel along the Capital Region’s lovely scenic byways to discover historic towns, mountain landscapes, and historic landmarks. Among the best are the George Washington Memorial Parkway around Washington DC, the stunning Skyline Drive through Shenandoah National Park and Chesapeake Country Scenic Byway, celebrating the rich marine life of Maryland. Last but not least, the Blue Ridge Parkway, is known as ‘America’s Favourite Drive’.

The History

The Capital Region encompasses some of the first European settlements of the USA, along with many of the most significant sites associated with the American Civil War. You can visit the Jamestown Settlement where English settlers set up their first permanent colony, tour the site of the Battle of Gettysburg or get an overview at the National Museum of American History in Washington DC.

The Gastronomy

Spreading newspapers across the table and cracking open steaming Chesapeake Bay crabs dusted in Old Bay seasoning is an essential experience in this part of the States. You can join in the local ritual at crab shacks including the Quarterdeck in Arlington, Virginia and Jimmy Cantler’s near Annapolis. But if you’re after something more formal, you will find a bewildering choice of cuisine and top-rated restaurants in the USA’s capital city, recently ranked in the ‘Top 10 America’s Best Restaurant Cities’.

The Great Outdoors

From the Blue Ridge Mountains and the rolling hills of Shenandoah National Park to Assateague Island National Seashore and the white sands of Virginia Beach, there’s a whole lot of natural wonder waiting to be discovered in the Capital Region. Why not take a tour of the Elizabeth River on the tall ship American Rover or cycle along the Great Allegheny Passage rail-trail between Cumberland, Maryland and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania?

You will need your ESTA!
The US authorities have imposed a requirement for passengers travelling under the Visa Waiver Programme (VWP), to register for Electronic Travel Authority if you are travelling to the US. Any passengers who have not made an application for and received their travel authorisation via ESTA before travelling may not be permitted to board the aircraft or could be denied admission at the US entry destination. But of course, neither possession of a visa, nor meeting the basic requirements for travelling visa-free on the VWP will guarantee a passenger admission to the United States. The final determination of admissibility is made by the immigration office at the port of entry.

Where can I apply for ESTA?
Prior to travel, you will need to visit https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov. and fill out an online application form.

When should I apply?
This will need to be applied for at least 72 hours prior to travel if you intend to travel to America.

How long is my ESTA valid for?
Your ESTA will be valid for up to two years, or until your passport expires. It is also possible for you to use for multiple entries to America. Just be sure to amend any necessary data, such as date of travel and your address whilst in the US.
