America's capital, Washington D.C. is a fascinating destination: known colloquially as "The District" it isn't, in fact, a state at all but a federal district made up from land donated by the neighbouring states of Maryland and Virginia. It has excellent transport networks, and many tourists arrive at Washington Union Station or Reagan Airport to spend a few days in the city before going on to explore the East Coast.
Even within the District of Columbia, car hire is often the best way to get around: the different attractions may look close on a map, but they can make for a long trek in reality, especially during the extremes of summer and winter. Alamo has locations at both Union Station and Reagan Airport to get you on your way. With our reputation for customer service, online booking, check-in facilities and reservation deals to save you money, you'll find that even in the metropolitan District of Columbia, car rental is a convenient and cost-effective option for your holiday.
The National Mall is an essential stop on your itinerary: you'll find a large, open park with views of the White House, stretching right from the Lincoln Memorial at one end to the Capitol at the other. Go in springtime and you might be lucky enough to catch the cherry blossom. The war memorials and main museums are all located on the Mall, so stop in at the Smithsonian Institute to collect a map before deciding which to visit. The National Air and Space Museum is always a popular choice, as is the National Museum of Natural History.
If politics is your bent, you could take a tour of the three iconic houses of government, the Capitol Building, the White House and the Supreme Court, or delve into its history with a short trip out of the city to Mount Vernon, George Washington's estate. Yet D.C. has plenty of culture on offer as well: head to quaint and historic Georgetown down on the Potomac waterfront, or out of the city to Old Town Alexandria for its colonial architecture. The Kennedy Center is home to the city's major arts institutions. With the freedom of car hire, however, you could go further out to Wolftrap Farm Park, which hosts outdoor concerts in the summer, or to spend an afternoon enjoying the foliage or outdoor sports at Great Falls Park in Virginia.
