Washington, D.C. travel tips

Best time to visit Washington, DC

Fall is a good time to visit Washington, DC. From September – November, the days are cooler, crowds are thinner, and the changing leaves create a beautiful picture against the marble monuments. Another great time to visit is in spring, from March – May when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom all over the city. Summer is hot and humid but it is also the tourist high season due to schools being closed. Average temperatures are around 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Winters are freezing cold and temperatures hover around 20 – 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Remember to bring your hats, gloves, coats, and thermal clothing. The National Christmas Tree Lighting does attract a large number of tourists, however, hotel prices are affordable during this time of the year.

Getting around Washington, DC

Many of the memorials and monuments are concentrated in a compact area, so walking around the city is one way to cover some of the must-see and must-do items in your DC itinerary. To cover longer distances, you can use the WMATA-operated Metro trains and buses which have a fairly dense and efficient network. The Metrobus fare for regular routes is $2.00 USD and for express routes, it is $4.25 USD. Metrorail peak-hour fares range from $2.25 USD – $6.00 USD. Off-peak fares are capped at $3.85 USD.
