When to visit

The District of Columbia in the United States has peak seasons coinciding two activities, the Congress sessions and springtime, which starts with the cherries blooming along the Potomac. Spring is the best time to enjoy the outdoor attractions. The summer season too is the best time to visit for festivals, outdoor concerts, parades and such events.

The hotels and other accommodation facilities are full with guests from second week of September to Thanksgiving and also from mid January to June, as business takes such people to the conferences or to the Capitol Hill. The most turbulent season is mid Match to June, when the school and families descend upon this city to see the cherries and to enjoy the sensational spring of the place. This is the precise time when the accommodation facilities like hotels and its rooms are at a premium, with airfares too becoming higher. What’s more, this is also the popular season for protesting marches.

For those, who want to avoid the crowds, end of August or early September is the good time or between Thanksgiving and mid January. This time, the prices of the hotels are cheap, with some of the hotels providing attractive packages.

If one is thinking of visiting District of Columbia in July and August, he should be well aware of the hot and humid weather. Irrespective of this heat, the Independence Day is an impressive celebration.
