Washington DC Inspiration from Alamo

America's Political hub

The capital of the United States is positively teeming with political attractions. Of course, the White House will be top of most people’s list in Washington DC, whether you're applying for a tour or simply want some fantastic holiday photos in front of the gates. Budding politicos will love a visit to the Supreme Court – as well as viewing its grand exterior, you can view themed exhibitions and even attend a courtroom lecture. Just across from the courthouse is the iconic U.S. Capitol, where visitors can browse the exhibition room detailing the story of Congress.

With a Washington DC car rental, you're free to explore beyond the city limits too, such as with a scenic drive down the Potomac River to Mount Vernon, home of America's first president, George Washington. Trace the founding father’s steps through the mansion and gardens and visit the family tomb.

Historical Monuments

Washington DC is packed full of places to see for history buffs. You'll find monuments aplenty along the National Mall, from the marbled Lincoln Memorial towering over the Reflecting Pool to the dazzling Thomas Jefferson Memorial on the other side of the Tidal Basin. The moving National World War II Memorial and Vietnam Veterans Memorial are also located near here. Drive over the iconic Arlington Memorial Bridge to reach Arlington House, where you can watch the changing of the guard, visit the Robert E. Lee Museum, and tour the beautiful grounds.

The Perfect Base for Road Trips

The city may have good transport links, but arranging car hire in Washington DC means you can explore so much more – particularly if you plan to explore further afield. If you're on a historical road trip, visit the emblematic battlefields of Gettysburg or Antietam, which are both a short drive away from the capital.

If you fancy a change of scenery, pack the family into one of our SUVs or minivans, then head down the scenic Skyline Drive to the breathtaking Shenandoah National Park in Virginia, where you can experience fresh mountain air in the wilderness. The cities of Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York are all within reach, so choose a one-way rental when booking from Alamo Rent A Car if you're planning an East Coast road trip.
